    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:28

    el cual nosotros anunciamos, amonestando a todo hombre, y enseando en toda sabiduría, para hacer a todo hombre perfecto en el Cristo Jess;

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 28. Whom we
    preach , etc.] Under the above considerations; as the riches, the glory, and the mystery of the Gospel; as the hope set before lost sinners to lay hold upon; as the only Saviour and Redeemer, by whose righteousness believers are justified, through whose blood their sins are pardoned, by whose sacrifice and satisfaction atonement is made, and in whose person alone is acceptance with God: Christ and him crucified, and salvation by him, were the subjects of the ministry of the apostles; on this they dwelt, and it was this which was blessed for the conversion of sinners, the edification of saints, the planting of churches, and the setting up and establishing the kingdom and interest of Christ: warning every man ; of his lost state and condition by nature; of the wrath to come, and the danger he is in of it; of the terrors of the Lord, and of an awful judgment; showing sinners that they are unrighteous and unholy, that their nature is corrupt and impure, their best righteousness imperfect, and cannot justify them before God; that they stand guilty before him, and that destruction and misery are in all their ways; and therefore advise them to flee from the wrath to come, to the hope set before them in the Gospel: and teaching every man in all wisdom ; not natural, but spiritual and evangelical; the whole Gospel of Christ, the counsel of God, the wisdom of God in a mystery, and all the branches of it; teaching them to believe in Christ for salvation, to lay hold on his righteousness for justification, to deal with his blood for pardon, and with his sacrifice for the atonement of their sins; and to observe all things commanded by Christ, and to live soberly, righteously, and godly: by these two words, warning and teaching, the several parts of the Gospel ministry are expressed; and which extend to all sorts of men, rich and poor, bond and free, greater and lesser sinners, Gentiles as well as Jews; and who are chiefly designed here, and elsewhere, by every man and every creature: that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus ; not in themselves, in which sense no man is perfect in this life; but in the grace, holiness, and righteousness of Christ, in whom all the saints are complete: or it may regard that ripeness of understanding, and perfection of knowledge, which, when arrived unto, saints become perfect men in Christ; and is the end of the Gospel ministry, and to which men are brought by it; (see Ephesians 4:13); and to be understood of the presentation of the saints, not by Christ to himself, and to his Father, but by the ministers of the Gospel, as their glory and crown of rejoicing in the day of Christ.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 24-29 - Both the sufferings of the
    Head and of the members are called the sufferings of Christ, and make up, as it were, one body of sufferings But He suffered for the redemption of the church; we suffer on othe accounts; for we do but slightly taste that cup of afflictions of whic Christ first drank deeply. A Christian may be said to fill up tha which remains of the sufferings of Christ, when he takes up his cross and after the pattern of Christ, bears patiently the afflictions God allots to him. Let us be thankful that God has made known to u mysteries hidden from ages and generations, and has showed the riche of his glory among us. As Christ is preached among us, let us seriousl inquire, whether he dwells and reigns in us; for this alone can warran our assured hope of his glory. We must be faithful to death, throug all trials, that we may receive the crown of life, and obtain the en of our faith, the salvation of our souls __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:28 {Whom} (hon). That is, "
    Christ in you, the hope of glory." {We proclaim} (kataggellomen). Paul, Timothy and all like-minded preachers against the Gnostic depreciation of Christ. this verb originally (Xenophon) meant to denounce, but in N.T. it means to announce (aggellw) throughout (kata), to proclaim far and wide (#Ac 13:5). {Admonishing} (nouqetountes). Old verb from nouqetes, admonisher (from nous, tiqemi). See already #Ac 20:31; 1Th 5:12,14; 2Th 3:15, etc. Warning about practice and teaching (didaskontes) about doctrine. Such teaching calls for "all wisdom" {Every man} (panta anqrwpon). Repeated three times. "In opposition to the doctrine of an intellectual exclusiveness taught by the false teachers" (Abbott). {That we may present} (hina parasteswmen). Final use of hina and first aorist active subjunctive of paristemi, for which see #1:22, the final presentation to Christ. {Perfect} (teleion). Spiritual adults in Christ, no longer babes in Christ (#Heb 5:14), mature and ripened Christians (#4:22), the full-grown man in Christ (#Eph 4:13). The relatively perfect (#Php 3:15) will on that day of the presentation be fully developed as here (#Col 4:12; Eph 4:13). The Gnostics used teleios of the one fully initiated into their mysteries and it is quite possible that Paul here has also a sidewise reference to their use of the term.
