Ephesians #6

Ephesians #6

Eph 1:7-12 "redemption" means to set free a slave. Blood is idiomatic; He took our place as the perfect sacrifice. "forgiveness" includes imputation of sin to Christ and righteousness to us. 2Co 5:21 says the Father made Christ to be sin for us "according to the riches of His Grace". He made our riches to abound in Wisdom (1Co 1:18-30, Rom 1:17) -- the skill of living life God's way. Eph 1:9 "He made known to us" first through the Gospel, "the mystery of His will". Eph 1:10 the "Dispensation of the fullness of time -- the gathering of all things into Christ". Eph 1:11 "in Him" we have received an allotment (Rom 8:14, Rom 8:17; 1Pe 1:4). Eph 1:12 we are "to the praise of His Glory". 8 things about redemption in Eph 1:7-12: possession, price, subtraction, bounty, revelation, economy, inheritence, and worship.
