Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 2:20

_ _ I am crucified — literally, “I have been crucified with Christ.” This more particularizes the foregoing. “I am dead” (Galatians 2:19; Philippians 3:10).

_ _ nevertheless I live; yet not IGreek, “nevertheless I live, no longer (indeed) I.” Though crucified I live; (and this) no longer that old man such as I once was (compare Romans 7:17). No longer Saul the Jew (Galatians 5:24; Colossians 3:11, but “another man”; compare 1 Samuel 10:6). Ellicott and others translate, “And it is no longer I that live, but Christ that liveth in me.” But the plain antithesis between “crucified” and “live,” requires the translation, “nevertheless.”

_ _ the life which I now live — as contrasted with my life before conversion.

_ _ in the flesh — My life seems to be a mere animal life “in the flesh,” but this is not my true life; “it is but the mask of life under which lives another, namely, Christ, who is my true life” [Luther].

_ _ I live by the faith, etc. — Greek, “IN faith (namely), that of (that is, which rests on) the Son of God.” “In faith,” answers by contrast to “in the flesh.” Faith, not the flesh, is the real element in which I live. The phrase, “the Son of God,” reminds us that His Divine Sonship is the source of His life-giving power.

_ _ loved me — His eternal gratuitous love is the link that unites me to the Son of God, and His “giving Himself for me,” is the strongest proof of that love.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 2:11-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 2:20

The Apostle goes on to describe how he is freed from sin; how far he is from continuing therein. I am crucified with Christ — Made conformable to his death; "the body of sin is destroyed." Romans 6:6. And I — As to my corrupt nature. Live no longer — Being dead to sin. But Christ liveth in me — Is a fountain of life in my inmost soul, from which all my tempers, words, and actions flow. And the life that I now live in the flesh — Even in this mortal body, I live by faith in the Son of God — I derive every moment from that supernatural principle; from a divine evidence and conviction, that "he loved me, and delivered up himself for me."

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Galatians 2:20

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not (u) I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the (x) flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

(u) The same that I was before.

(x) In this mortal body.
