Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 2:13

_ _ now — in contrast to “at that time” (Ephesians 2:12).

_ _ in Christ Jesus — “Jesus” is here added, whereas the expression before (Ephesians 2:12) had been merely “Christ,” to mark that they know Christ as the personal Savior, “Jesus.”

_ _ sometimesGreek, “aforetime.”

_ _ far off — the Jewish description of the Gentiles. Far off from God and from the people of God (Ephesians 2:17; Isaiah 57:19; Acts 2:39).

_ _ areGreek, “have been.”

_ _ byGreek, “in.” Thus “the blood of Christ” is made the seal of a covenant IN which their nearness to God consists. In Ephesians 1:7, where the blood is more directly spoken of as the instrument, it is “through His blood” [Alford].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 2:11-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 2:13

Far off — From God and his people. Nigh — Intimately united to both.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ephesians 2:13

(11) But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

(11) Christ is the only bond of the Jews and Gentiles, by whom they are reconciled to God.
