<< Ephesians 4:12   Ephesians 4:14 >>

Ephesians 4:13

come in—rather, "attain unto." ALFORD expresses the Greek order, "Until we arrive all of us at the unity," etc.

faith and . . . knowledge—Full unity of faith is then found, when all alike thoroughly know Christ, the object of faith, and that in His highest dignity as "the Son of God" [DE WETTE] (Ephesians 3:17, Ephesians 3:19; II Peter 1:5). Not even Paul counted himself to have fully "attained" (Philippians 3:12-14). Amidst the variety of the gifts and the multitude of the Church's members, its "faith" is to be ONE: as contrasted with the state of "children carried about with EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE." (Ephesians 4:14).

perfect man—unto the full-grown man (I Corinthians 2:6; Philippians 3:15; Hebrews 5:14); the maturity of an adult; contrasted with children (Ephesians 4:14). Not "perfect men"; for the many members constitute but one Church joined to the one Christ.

stature, etc.—The standard of spiritual "stature" is "the fulness of Christ," that is, which Christ has (Ephesians 1:23; Ephesians 3:19; compare Galatians 4:19); that the body should be worthy of the Head, the perfect Christ.
