Ephesians 2:12-14

Context
2:12 that you were at that time without the Messiah, 1  alienated from the citizenship of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, 2  having no hope and without God in the world. 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who used to be far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 3  2:14 For he is our peace, the one who made both groups into one 4  and who destroyed the middle wall of partition, the hostility,

1 tn Or “without Christ.” Both “Christ” (Greek) and “Messiah” (Hebrew and Aramaic) mean “one who has been anointed.” Because the context refers to ancient Israel’s messianic expectation, “Messiah” was employed in the translation at this point rather than “Christ.”

2 tn Or “covenants of the promise.”

3 tn Or “have come near in the blood of Christ.”

sn See the note on “his blood” in 1:7.

4 tn Grk “who made the both one.”
