Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: ...K.t.x. The Authorised Version follows Chrysostom in treating the three clauses as co-ordinate, Ikoo-tos Olko&oixu, eKaoros KarapTiti, Ikootos SiaKovti.

"With a view to the perfecting of the saints, so that they may be able to work in every way to the building up," etc. But in a connexion like this, where offices in the Church are in question, SiaKovia can only mean official service; and this does not belong to the saints in general. Olshausen supposes the two latter members to be a subdivision of the first, thus: "for the perfecting of the saints, namely, on the one hand, of those who are endowed with gifts of teaching for the fulfilment of their office; and, on the other hand, as regards the hearers, for the building up of the Church." But it is impossible to read into the words this distinction, "on the one hand," "on the other hand" j and the Ojkoso/xtj Tov awfiaroi describes the function of teachers rather than of hearers. Besides, we cannot suppose the teachers themselves to be included among those who are the objects of the functions enumerated in ver. n. The word mTapnaiibs does not occur elsewhere in the N.T. Galen uses it of setting a dislocated joint. The verb KaraprLfa by its etymology means to restore or bring to the condition fiprios, and is used Matt. v. 21 of "mending" nets; in...show more
