Ephesians 3:19 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

To know (γνῶναι)

Practically, through experience; while apprehend marks the knowledge as conception.

Love of Christ

Christ's love to us. Human love to Christ could not be described in these terms.

Which passeth knowledge (τὴν ὑπερβάλλουσαν τῆς γνώσεως).

Which surpasses mere knowledge without the experience of love. Note the play on the words know and knowledge.

That ye might be filled with all the fullness of God (ἵνα πληρωθῆτε εἰς πᾶν τὸ πλήρωμα τοῦ θεοῦ)

Note the recurrence of that; that He would grant you; that ye may be strong; that ye may be filled. With is better rendered unto, to the measure or standard of. Fullness of God is the fullness which God imparts through the dwelling of Christ in the heart; Christ, in whom the Father was pleased that all the fullness should dwell (Colossians 1:19), and in whom dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead (Colossians 2:9).
