Ephesians 3:12

_ _ Translate, “our boldness and our access (Ephesians 2:18) in confidence through our faith in Him.” Alford quotes as an instance, Romans 8:38, etc. “THE access” (Greek) implies the formal introduction into the presence of a monarch.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 3:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 3:12

By whom we have free access — Such as those petitioners have, who are introduced to the royal presence by some distinguished favourite. And boldness — Unrestrained liberty of speech, such as children use in addressing an indulgent father, when, without fear of offending, they disclose all their wants, and make known all their requests.
