20 [a]Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his [b]right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and domination, and every [c]Name, that is named, not in this world only, but also in that that is to come,
22 [d]And hath made all things subject under his feet, and hath given him over all things to be the [e]head to the Church,
Ephesians 1:20The Apostle willeth us to behold in our most glorious Christ with the eye of faith, that most excellent power and glory of God, whereof all the faithful are partakers, although it be as yet very dark in us, by reason of the ignominy of the cross and the weakness of the flesh.
Ephesians 1:20To be set on God’s right hand, is to be partaker of the sovereignty which he hath over all creatures.
Ephesians 1:21Everything whatsoever it be, or above all things be they of never such power or excellency.
Ephesians 1:22That we should not think that that excellent glory of Christ is a thing wherewith we have nought to do, he witnesseth, that he was appointed of God the Father the head of all the Church, and therefore the body must be joined to his head, which otherwise should be a maimed thing without the members: which notwithstanding is not of necessity (seeing that the Church is rather quickeneth and sustained by the only virtue of Christ, so far off is it, that he needeth the fullness thereof) but of the infinite goodwill and pleasure of God, who vouchsafeth to join us to his Son.
