John Eadie on EPHESIANS  Dec 28, 2000
First published circa 1856, this copy is just that -- a copy in paperback format. As a copy, some of the beautiful typography is preserved, the Greek font and the Syriac especially are very attractive.

Eadie loves God's word, and his love for it is everywhere evident in this commentary. It is laid out on a verse by verse basis, so a limited context is visible, but it is limited. However, in his introduction he also lays out a general "outline" in English of the entire epistle. Also in his xlvi page introduction Eadie dialogues with several earlier commentators who submit, for example, that Paul started this church himself in Colosse (which Eadie corrects (i.e. that Paul personally, himself, did not start this church)). As to the date, Eadie places it in the Roman imprisonment period of Paul's life (A. D. 62). Which date accords with the Biblical testimony. Indeed, this accordance to the Biblical authority is a mark of distinction in Eadie's works, he is very conservative with a plain basic respect for the Holy Writ.

Eadie presents the Greek text, and then discusses it along with notable variants. He reflects upon many of the earlier Greek texts, often Lachmann's and the TR, and he is free from most of the errors seen in works which rely upon the Nestle/Aland or UBS Greek texts. Unfortunately the commentary was made before the discoveries of the great Greek papyri (such as P-46).

Eadie gives an accurate definition of the Greek word for "mystery" at 1:26, but the reader must consult Eadie's sister volume on EPHESIANS to see there the definition for "mystery", thus for a thorough appreciation and understanding of Colossians -- the reader needs both volumes (Eadie's commentaries on Colossians AND Ephesians, also an excellent commentary!).

The volume is a GREAT commentary, giving us today a solid conservative view. Eadie adds substantially to the efforts of his predecessors. But perhaps the lasting value of this great work, is that his corrections to the liberal theories and speculations of his day are still needed today, as many of these liberal conjectures are still being espoused! It was Eadie's love for the word, which probably made one of his contemporaries (Charles Ellicott) jealous of Eadie's labor!

A great and stimulating read, all scholars, students, pastors and laymen can benefit from the reissue of this classic and great commentary. A MUST HAVE for any Christian. Gary S. Dykes
