Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 2:6

_ _ raised us up together — with Christ. The “raising up” presupposes previous quickening of Jesus in the tomb, and of us in the grave of our sins.

_ _ made us sit together — with Christ, namely, in His ascension. Believers are bodily in heaven in point of right, and virtually so in spirit, and have each their own place assigned there, which in due time they shall take possession of (Philippians 3:20, Philippians 3:21). He does not say, “on the right hand of God”; a prerogative reserved to Christ peculiarly; though they shall share His throne (Revelation 3:21).

_ _ in Christ Jesus — Our union with Him is the ground of our present spiritual, and future bodily, resurrection and ascension. “Christ Jesus” is the phrase mostly used in this Epistle, in which the office of the Christ, the Anointed Prophet, Priest and King, is the prominent thought; when the Person is prominent, “Jesus Christ” is the phrase used.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 2:4-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 2:6

And hath raised us up together — Both Jews and gentiles already in spirit; and ere long our bodies too will be raised. And made us all sit together in heavenly places — This is spoken by way of anticipation. Believers are not yet possessed of their seats in heaven; but each of them has a place prepared for him.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ephesians 2:6

And hath raised [us] up (g) together, and made [us] sit together in heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus:

(g) That is, as he adds afterwards, in Christ, for as yet this is not fulfilled in us, but only in our head by whose Spirit we have begun to die to sin, and live to God, until that work is fully brought to an end. And yet the hope is certain, for we are as sure of that which we look for, as we are of that which we have already received.
