Ephesians 1:21

Far above all rule (uperanw pashv arxhv).
Late compound adverbial preposition (uper, anw) with the ablative case. In N.T. only here and Hebrews 9:5. As in Colossians 1:16, so here Paul claims primacy for Jesus Christ above all angels, aeons, what not. These titles all were used in the Gnostic speculations with a graduated angelic hierarchy.

World (aiwni).
"Age." See this identical expression in Matthew 12:32 for the present time ( 1:4; 1 Timothy 6:17) and the future life (Ephesians 2:7; Luke 20:35). Both combined in Mark 10:30; Luke 18:30.
