Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 2:5

_ _ dead in sins — The best reading is in the Greek, “dead in our (literally, ‘the’) trespasses.

_ _ quickened — “vivified” spiritually, and consequences hereafter, corporally. There must be a spiritual resurrection of the soul before there can be a comfortable resurrection of the body [Pearson] (John 11:25, John 11:26; Romans 8:11).

_ _ together with Christ — The Head being seated at God’s right hand, the body also sits there with Him [Chrysostom]. We are already seated there IN Him (“in Christ Jesus,” Ephesians 2:6), and hereafter shall be seated by Him; IN Him already as in our Head, which is the ground of our hope; by Him hereafter, as by the conferring cause, when hope shall be swallowed up in fruition [Pearson]. What God wrought in Christ, He wrought (by the very fact) in all united to Christ, and one with Him.

_ _ by grace ye are savedGreek, “Ye are in a saved state.” Not merely “ye are being saved,” but ye “are passed from death unto life” (John 5:24). Salvation is to the Christian not a thing to be waited for hereafter, but already realized (1 John 3:14). The parenthetic introduction of this clause here (compare Ephesians 2:8) is a burst of Paul’s feeling, and in order to make the Ephesians feel that grace from first to last is the sole source of salvation; hence, too, he says “ye,” not “we.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 2:4-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 2:5

He hath quickened us together with Christ — In conformity to him, and by virtue of our union with him. By grace ye are saved — Grace is both the beginning and end. The apostle speaks indifferently either in the first or second person; the Jews and gentiles being in the same circumstance, both by nature and by grace. This text lays the axe to the very root of spiritual pride, and all glorying in ourselves. Therefore St. Paul, foreseeing the backwardness of mankind to receive it, yet knowing the absolute necessity of its being received, again asserts the very same truth, Ephesians 2:8, in the very same words.
