Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentEphesians 2:17
- Preached peace (euhggelisato eirhnhn).
- First aorist middle of euaggelizw. "He gospelized peace" to both Jew and Gentile, "to the far off ones" (toiv makran) and "to the nigh ones" (toiv egguv). By the Cross and after the Cross Christ could preach that message.
