Chapter 2

2:2  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

world

kosmos = world-system. Colossians 2:20; John 7:7. (See Scofield "Revelation 13:8") .

2:5  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

dead

Death (spiritual), Summary: Spiritual death is the state of the natural or unregenerate man as still in his sins. Ephesians 2:1 alienated from the life of God Ephesians 4:18,19 and destitute of the Spirit. Prolonged beyond the death of the body, spiritual death is a state of eternal separation from God in conscious suffering. This is called "the second death." ; Revelation 2:11; 20:6,14; 21:8.

saved (See Scofield "Romans 1:16") .

2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

grace Grace (in salvation). Ep 5,7,8 Colossians 1:6; Romans 3:24; John 1:17 (See Scofield "John 1:17")

saved

See note, (See Scofield "Romans 1:16")

2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

created

(See Scofield "Ephesians 4:24") .

2:12  That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

world

kosmos = mankind. (See Scofield "Matthew 4:8") .

2:15  Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

new man

Here the "new man" is not the individual believer but the church, considered as the body of Christ in the sense of Ephesians 1:22,23; 1 Corinthians 12:12,13; Colossians 3:10,11. (See Scofield "Hebrews 12:23") .
