2:16my gospel. The gospel Paul preaches. In this gospel, the bad news of judgment precedes the good news of grace.
by Christ Jesus. All judgment has been placed in His hand (Matt. 7:21–23; 25:31–33; John 5:22; 2 Cor. 5:10). Such judgment will be infallible, penetrating to “the thoughts and intentions of the heart”; nothing will be concealed from the Judge (Heb. 4:12, 13). Nor will anyone say that it is unfair for the human to be judged by the divine, since the agent of judgment will be the incarnate Christ, Himself a man. See “The Final Judgment” at Matt. 25:41.
