Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 2:7

_ _ Greek, “That He might show forth (middle reflexive voice; for His own glory, Ephesians 1:6, Ephesians 1:12, Ephesians 1:14) in the ages which are coming on,” that is, the blessed ages of the Gospel which supersede “the age (Greek, for ‘course’) of this world” (Ephesians 2:2), and the past “ages” from which the mystery was hidden (Colossians 1:26, Colossians 1:27). These good ages, though beginning with the first preaching of the Gospel, and thenceforth continually succeeding one another, are not consummated till the Lord’s coming again (compare Ephesians 1:21; Hebrews 6:5). The words, “coming on,” do not exclude the time then present, but imply simply the ages following upon Christ’s “raising them up together” spiritually (Ephesians 2:6).

_ _ kindness — “benignity.”

_ _ through Christ — rather, as Greek, “in Christ”; the same expression as is so often repeated, to mark that all our blessings center “IN HIM.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 2:4-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 2:7
