    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:18

    Y todo esto por Dios, el cual nos reconcili a sí por Jess el Cristo; y (nos) dio el ministerio de la reconciliacin.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 5:18

    Verse 18. And all things are of
    God] As the thorough conversion of the soul is compared to a new creation, and creation is the proper work of an all-wise, almighty Being; then this total change of heart, soul, and life, which takes place under the preaching of the Gospel, is effected by the power and grace of God: this is salvation, and salvation must ever be of the Lord; and therefore men should apply to him, who alone can work this wondrous change.

    Who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ] Having given Jesus Christ to die for sinners, they have through him access unto God; for his sake and on his account God can receive them; and it is only by the grace and Spirit of Christ that the proud, fierce, and diabolic nature of men can be changed and reconciled to God, and by and through this sacrifice God can be propitious to them. There is an enmity in the heart of man against sacred things; the grace of Christ alone can remove this enmity.

    The ministry of reconciliation] diakonian th katallaghv? The OFFICE or function of this reconciliation called, 2 Corinthians v. 19, the word; ton logon thv katallaghv? the DOCTRINE of this reconciliation.

    katallagh, reconciliation, comes from katallassw, to change thoroughly; and the grand object of the Gospel is to make a complete change in men's minds and manners; but the first object is the removal of enmity from the heart of man, that he may be disposed to accept of the salvation God has provided for him, on the terms which God has promised. The enmity in the heart of man is the grand hinderance to his salvation.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. And all things are of God , etc..] A man's being brought into a Gospel church state is of God; the causing all old things to pass away, whether in the Jewish or Gentile world, is of God; the shaking of the heavens and the earth, and the removing of those things that are shaken, the abrogation of the ceremonial law, the putting an end to all the Mosaic rites and sacrifices, the ejection of Satan out of the Heathen temples, and the abolition of Gentilism, with every thing else that comes under the names of old, and new, are of God: it is he that causes old things to pass away, and makes all things new, (see Revelation 21:1,5). Moreover, as all things in the old creation are from him, all creatures owe their beings to him, are supported in them by him, and all are made for his pleasure, and his glory so all things in the new creation are of him; the work of renovation itself is his; all the grace that is implanted in regeneration comes front him: nothing is of the creature, or to be ascribed to it. All things in redemption are of him; he drew the plan of it, called his Son to be the Redeemer, appointed and sent him as such; and particularly that branch of it, reconciliation, is of him: who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ . The work of reconciliation, or making atonement for sin, is ascribed to the Father; not that he is the author of it, for it is properly Christ's work; but because he took the first step towards it: he formed the scheme of it; he set forth his Son in his purposes and decrees to be the propitiary sacrifice; he assigned him this work in council and covenant, in promise and in prophecy, and sent him to effect it; therefore he is said to do it by him; that is, by his blood and sacrifice, by his sufferings and death, to which, and to which alone, the Scriptures ascribe our peace and reconciliation: and this is made to himself: as being the party offended, whose law was broken, against whom sin was committed, and whose justice required and demanded satisfaction: and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation ; which is the Gospel of peace, the word which preaches, publishes and declares, peace made by the blood of Christ; which is a gift to ministers, and a blessing to the people.

    The free grace of God greatly appears in this matter; God the Father sets this work of reconciliation on foot, Christ has brought it about, and the ministers of the Gospel publish it.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16-21 - The renewed man acts upon new principles, by new rules, with new ends and in new company. The believer is created anew; his heart is no merely set right, but a new heart is given him. He is the workmanshi of God, created in Christ Jesus unto good works. Though the same as man, he is changed in his character and conduct. These words must an do mean more than an outward reformation. The man who formerly saw n beauty in the Saviour that he should desire him, now loves him abov all things. The heart of the unregenerate is filled with enmity agains God, and God is justly offended with him. Yet there may be reconciliation. Our offended God has reconciled us to himself by Jesu Christ. By the inspiration of God, the Scriptures were written, whic are the word of reconciliation; showing that peace has been made by the cross, and how we may be interested therein. Though God cannot lose by the quarrel, nor gain by the peace, yet he beseeches sinners to la aside their enmity, and accept the salvation he offers. Christ knew n sin. He was made Sin; not a sinner, but Sin, a Sin-offering, Sacrifice for sin. The end and design of all this was, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him, might be justified freely by the grace of God through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus. Can an lose, labour, or suffer too much for Him, who gave his beloved Son to be the Sacrifice for their sins, that they might be made the righteousness of God in him __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    18. And (de). Better, Rev., but; as if anticipating a possible failure to
    discern the primary agency of God in this moral transformation. All things - all that are involved in this mighty change - are from God.

    Reconciled. God is the prime-mover in the work of reconciliation. See on Rom. v. 10, through Christ, as the medium.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:18 {Who reconciled us to himself through Christ} (tou katallaxantos hemas heautwi dia cristou). Here Paul uses one of his great doctrinal words, katallassw, old word for exchanging coins. diallassw, to change one's mind, to reconcile, occurs in N.T. only in #Mt 5:24 though in papyri (Deissmann, _Light from the Ancient East_, p. 187), and common in Attic. katallassw is old verb, but more frequent in later writers. We find sunallassw in #Ac 7:26 and apokatallassw in #Col 1:20f.; Eph 2:16 and the substantive katallage in #Ro 5:11; 11:15 as well as here. It is hard to discuss this great theme without apparent contradiction. God's love (#Joh 3:16) provided the means and basis for man's reconciliation to God against whom he had sinned. It is all God's plan because of his love, but God's own sense of justice had to be satisfied (#Ro 3:26) and so God gave his Son as a propitiation for our sins (#Ro 3:25; Col 1:20; 1Jo 2:2; 4:10). The point made by Paul here is that God needs no reconciliation, but is engaged in the great business of reconciling us to himself. this has to be done on God's terms and is made possible through (dia) Christ. {And gave unto us the ministry of reconciliation} (kai dontos hemin ten diakonian tes katallages). It is a ministry marked by reconciliation, that consists in reconciliation. God has made possible through Christ our reconciliation to him, but in each case it has to be made effective by the attitude of each individual. The task of winning the unreconciled to God is committed to us. It is a high and holy one, but supremely difficult, because the offending party (the guilty) is the hardest to win over. We must be loyal to God and yet win sinful men to him.
