Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Colossians 3:4

_ _ Translate, “When Christ shall be manifested who is our life (John 11:25; John 14:6, John 14:19), then shall ye also with Him be manifested in glory” (1 Peter 4:13). The spiritual life our souls have now in Him shall be extended to our bodies (Romans 8:11).

_ _ then — and not till then. Those err who think to find a perfect Church before then. The true Church is now militant. Rome errs in trying to set up a Church now regnant and triumphant. The true Church shall be visible as a perfect and reigning Church, when Christ shall be visibly manifested as her reigning Head. Rome having ceased to look for Him in patient faith, has set up a visible mockhead, a false anticipation of the millennial kingdom. The Papacy took to itself by robbery that glory which is an object of hope, and can only be reached by bearing the cross now. When the Church became a harlot, she ceased to be a bride who goes to meet her Bridegroom. Hence the millennial kingdom ceased to be looked for [Auberlen].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Colossians 3:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Colossians 3:4

When Christ — The abruptness of the sentence surrounds us with sudden light. Our life — The fountain of holiness and glory. Shall appear — In the clouds of heaven.
