And when we can get into this life of faith, this hidden life, then our affections are set on things above. Philippians 2:8. What a sad interpretation of Semler, that “Christ” in this clause means illa perfectior doctrina Christi! Lightfoot errs in giving it a different meaning from νόμῳ ἀπέθανον, of which it is the explanation, as if the one were release from past obligation, and this were the annihilation of old sins. 5:25-30). This change is brought about by faith (see the sequel), inasmuch as in the believer, according to the representation here given of Paul’s own experience, it is no longer the individual personality that is the agent of life (“mortuus est Saulus,” Erasmus), but Christ, who is present in him (through the Spirit, Romans 8:9 f.; Ephesians 3:16 f.), and works, determines, and rules everything in him, ζῶ δὲ οὐκέτι ἐγώ, ζῇ δὲ ἐν ἐμοὶ χριστός: the mind of Christ is in him (1 Corinthians 2:16), the heart of Christ beats in him (Philippians 1:8), and His power is effectual in him. He is not going back, and he has no further plans of his own. He still loved you and gave himself for you who believe in his name, though you may not be able to rise up to the faith of Paul, or speak with the same fullness of assurance. The interpretation: quod vero attinet, quod, etc. He is not going back, and he has no further plans of his own." His object, however, here is to connect the death of Christ subjectively with his own experience which shadows out that of all true believers, and he required not to consider its value, extent, or connection with the divine government.

Some ancient authorities (including the Codex Vaticanus) instead of “faith in the Son of God,” have “faith in God and Christ.” This might appear to have some internal probability, as the less obvious expression of the two; but it may be perhaps explained satisfactorily in another way. That is to say, the apostle does not himself follow a uniform order of thought on this central theme; and why should blame be insinuated against those who do not follow him in the special style of reasoning adopted here for a specific object and in personal vindication? "As a result of his participation in Christ"s death on the cross, Paul now explains ..., the life he now lives is not lived by him-by the "I" of Galatians 2:19, the self-righteous Pharisee who based his hope for righteousness and salvation on strict observance of the law-but by Christ, the risen and exalted One, who dwells in him."

This explanation is placed by δέ in formal contradistinction to the preceding apparent paradox. Who loved me. But Christ had a further end in submitting to crucifixion, namely, to destroy sin, and, by expiating its guilt, for ever to annul its power. It can be guessed that Matthew, being one of the twelve apostles, stayed in Jerusalem (Acts 8:1) for at least fourteen years (Acts 15:2 with Galatians 2:1-2) and was a part of the governing head over the church at Jerusalem (Acts 15:2). How? And what unsearchable riches does he seem to possess in this blessed assurance! 1:17; Gal. Compare John 15:1-11.

My present life-so true, so blessed, and so characterized by me-is a life in the flesh. In chapter 2, Paul described his visit to the Jerusalem Council of Acts 15 (see note on 2:1), so he must have written Galatians after that event. That he has the same life as the unregenerate, is obvious enough: but he has also a life different from theirs; and his whole manner of life is different from theirs: he lives a new life in, and through, Christ: he lives, [He once was—dead in trespasses and sins:” but that same voice which bade Lazarus to come forth out of the grave, has bidden him live. 6:7-10 Never Give Upâ¦Never, Never, Never! points out the special historical fact of salvation, which is the subject-matter of the faith in the Son of God, giving impulse to this new life.
