Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Colossians 1:14

_ _ (Ephesians 1:7.)

_ _ redemption — rather as Greek,our redemption.”

_ _ through his blood — omitted in the oldest manuscripts; probably inserted from Ephesians 1:7.

_ _ sins — Translate as Greek,our sins.” The more general term: for which Ephesians 1:7, Greek, has, “our transgressions,” the more special term.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Colossians 1:12-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Colossians 1:14

In whom we have redemption — This is treated of from the middle of Colossians 1:18. The voluntary passion of our Lord appeased the Father's wrath, obtained pardon and acceptance for us, and, consequently, dissolved the dominion and power which Satan had over us through our sins. So that forgiveness is the beginning of redemption, as the resurrection is the completion of it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Colossians 1:14

(6) In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins:

(6) The matter itself of our salvation is Christ the Son of God, who has obtained remission of sins for us by the offering up of himself.
