    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:22

    y sujetndole todas las cosas debajo de sus pies, y ponindolo por cabeza sobre todas las cosas a la Iglesia,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 1:22

    Verse 22. And hath put all things under his
    feet] All beings and things are subject to him, whether they be thrones, dominions, principalities, or powers, Col. i. 16-18; ii. 10; for he, God the Father, has given him to be head - chief, and supreme, over all, to the Church, the Church having no ruler but Jesus Christ; others may be officers in his Church, but he alone is head and supreme.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 22. And hath put all things under his
    feet , &c.] These words are taken out of ( Psalm 8:6). (See Gill on 1 Corinthians 15:27). And gave him to be the head over all things to the church ; the Vulgate Latin version reads, and gave him to be the head over every church, or all the church; the Ethiopic version, the whole church; which intends not barely professors of religion, or a family of faithful persons, or a particular congregation, in which sense the word is sometimes used; but the whole body of God's elect, the church, which is built on Christ the rock, for which he gave himself, and which is the general assembly and church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven: Christ is an head to this church; in what sense he is so, (See Gill on 1 Corinthians 11:3). And this headship of Christ is the gift of God; and it is an honourable gift to him, as Mediator; it is a glorifying of him, and a giving him in all things the pre-eminence; and it is a free grace gift to the church, and a very special, valuable, and excellent one, and of infinite benefit and advantage to it; and which is expressed in his being head over all things to it; to overrule all things for its good; to communicate all good things to it; and to perform all the good offices of an head for it: the Syriac version reads, and him who is above all things, he gave to be the head to the church even him who is God over all, blessed for evermore.

    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 __________________________________________________________________

    22. Put all things in subjection. Compare
    Col. i. 15-18; Psalm viii. 5-8.

    Gave Him. Him is emphatic: and Him He gave. Not merely set Him over the Church, but gave Him as a gift. See 2 Cor. ix. 15.

    The Church (th ekklhsia). See on Matt. xvi. 18.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:22 {He put all things in subjection} (panta hupetaxen). First aorist active indicative of hupotassw, quoted from #Ps 8:7 as in #1Co 15:27. {Gave him to be head} (auton edwken kefalen). {Gave} (edwken, first aorist active indicative of didwmi) to the church (the universal spiritual church or kingdom as in #Col 1:18,24) Christ as Head (kefalen, predicate accusative). this conception of ekklesia runs all through Ephesians (#3:10,21; 5:23,24,25,27,29,32).
