    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:20

    la cual obr en el Cristo, resucitndole de los muertos, y colocndole a su diestra en los lugares celestiales,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 1:20

    Verse 20. Set him at his own right
    hand in the heavenly places] Gave him, as mediator between God and man, the highest honours and dignities, Phil. ii. 9; in which state of exaltation he transacts all the affairs of his Church, and rules the universe. The right hand is the place of friendship, honour, confidence, and authority.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. Which he
    wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead , &c.] There are many articles of faith contained in this passage; as that Christ died, that he is raised from the dead, that he was raised from the dead by God the Father, and that his resurrection was by the power of God: the resurrection of any person is an instance of great power, but Christ's resurrection from the dead was an instance of peculiar and special power; for he was raised from the dead as a public person, representing all his people, for whom he became a surety; and he was raised again for their justification, and to great glory in himself, after he had been brought into a very low estate indeed: moreover, this passage in connection with the preceding verse suggests, that there is some proportion between the power put forth on Christ in raising him from the dead, and that which is exerted in the work of conversion and faith: there is some likeness between the things themselves, as well as in the display of power in them; Christ's resurrection is called a begetting, and he is styled the first begotten from the dead, and the regeneration of men is signified by a resurrection from the dead; as Christ's body was really dead, lifeless, and without motion, antecedent to his resurrection, so men, previous to conversion, are dead in trespasses and sins, and are destitute of spiritual life and motion; and as Christ's human nature could not help itself, could not raise itself, so neither can dead sinners convert themselves, or bring themselves out of that state and condition, in which they are by nature; and as the resurrection of Christ was the pure work of God, and a display of his almighty power, so the work of faith, of grace and conversion, is the entire work of God, which is begun, carried on, and finished wholly by his power; and as Christ's resurrection was in order to his glorification, so is the regeneration and conversion of men, in order to their enjoyment of the heavenly inheritance, as it follows: and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly [places] ; which is expressive of the great honour conferred upon the human nature of Christ, such as never was given to any of the angels, and of the glory it is exalted to; and shows that he has done his work on earth with acceptance, which he came about; and therefore is set down at his Father's right hand, where he enjoys rest and ease from his labours, and is out of the reach of every enemy; will never die again, but live for ever, to intercede for his people, to assist and protect them, and bring them where he is; and in whom, as their head and representative, they are already set down in the same heavenly places.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 15-23 -
    God has laid up spiritual blessings for us in his Son the Lord Jesus but requires us to draw them out and fetch them in by prayer. Even the best Christians need to be prayed for: and while we hear of the welfar of Christian friends, we should pray for them. Even true believer greatly want heavenly wisdom. Are not the best of us unwilling to com under God's yoke, though there is no other way to find rest for the soul? Do we not for a little pleasure often part with our peace? And i we dispute less, and prayed more with and for each other, we shoul daily see more and more what is the hope of our calling, and the riche of the Divine glory in this inheritance. It is desirable to feel the mighty power of Divine grace, beginning and carrying on the work of faith in our souls. But it is difficult to bring a soul to believ fully in Christ, and to venture its all, and the hope of eternal life upon his righteousness. Nothing less than Almighty power will work thi in us. Here is signified that it is Christ the Saviour, who supplie all the necessities of those who trust in him, and gives them all blessings in the richest abundance. And by being partakers of Chris himself, we come to be filled with the fulness of grace and glory in him. How then do those forget themselves who seek for righteousness ou of him! This teaches us to come to Christ. And did we know what we ar called to, and what we might find in him, surely we should come and be suitors to him. When feeling our weakness and the power of our enemies we most perceive the greatness of that mighty power which effects the conversion of the believer, and is engaged to perfect his salvation Surely this will constrain us by love to live to our Redeemer's glory __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    20. Which (hn). Refer to working (ver. 19).

    He wrought (enhrghsen). The best texts read ejnhrghken, perfect tense, He hath wrought. The verb is kindred with working (ver. 19).

    In Christ. In the case of Christ. Christ's dead body was the point on which this working of divine power was exhibited. See Rom. viii. 11; 2 Corinthians iv. 14.

    When He raised (egeirav). Or, in that He raised.

    And set (kai ekaqisen). Rev., made Him to sit. The best texts read kaqisav having seated, or in that He caused him to sit.

    Right hand. See Acts vii. 56.

    In the heavenly places. See on ver. 2. Local. Not merely of a spiritual state, which does not suit the local expressions made to sit and right hand.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:20 {Which he wrought} (energeken). Reading of A B rather than aorist energesen. Perfect active indicative, "which he has wrought." hen is cognate accusative of the relative referring to energeian (energy) with energeken and note also kratous (strength) and iscuos (might), three words trying to express what surpasses (huperballon) expression or comprehension. {Made him to sit} (kaqisas). First aorist active participle of kaqizw in causative sense as in #1Co 6:4. Metaphorical local expression like dexiai and en tois epour aniois.
