Dr. Marvin Vincent N.T. Word Studies

Quote
Of - through - to (ex - dia - eiv). Of, proceeding from as the source: through, by means of, as maintainer, preserver, ruler: to or unto, He is the point to which all tends. All men and things are for His glory (1 Corinthians xv. 28). Alford styles this doxology "the sublimest apostrophe existing even in the pages of inspiration itself."


Robertson Word Pictures Of The N.T.

Quote
Of him (ex autou),

Through him (di' autou),

Unto him (eiv auton).

By these three prepositions Paul ascribes the universe (ta panta) with all the phenomena concerning creation, redemption, providence to God as the

Ex= The Source

Di= The Agent

Eiv= The Goal

For ever= eiv touv aiwnav= "For the ages."

Alford terms this doxology in verses 33-36 "the sublimest apostrophe existing even in the pages of inspiration itself."


In the Christian story God descends to reascend. He comes down;.... down to the very roots and sea-bed of the Nature He has created. But He goes down to come up again and bring the whole ruined world up with Him. -C.S. Lewis

Romans 11:36

"oti ex autou kai di autou kai eiV auton ta panta autw h doxa eiV touV aiwnaV amhn"

"For from Him everything comes; through Him everything exists; and in Him everything ends."

Of= ejk= Out of.

(Primary preposition denoting the origin/ point of action.)

Through= Diav= Through/ by means of.

(Primary preposition denoting the channel of the act.)

To= eij├č= Into/ unto/ for/ towards.

(Primary preposition denoting the designated ending.)

All Things Reconciled

HERE

Quote
God purposes in His sovereign will that all human history shall be consummated in Christ. Everything that exists in heaven and earth shall find its perfection and fulfillment in Him. AII things shall "center in and tend to consummate and to end in Him." [Romans 11:36, Amplified].

Though the ages run their course, and the time seems long; though the judgments are required and the discipline is severe; though there be many paths washed with tears, and the valley be deep, yet God hath purposed that all shall be fully restored, and the great age of jubilee shall see a universe redeemed from the tyranny of change and decay, delivered into the glorious liberty which rightfully belongs to the children of God, and the whole purpose of the ages shall rebound to the glory of God. We bow to worship HIM who truly "doeth all things well."

Yes, Taffy, the all is ultimately summed up in Christ Jesus the Lord. The language of the Koine is precise: the ta pavnte is brought to summation in the Lord of Glory. Ta pavnte is the all, the all within the heavens, the all within the earth, and the all within the underworld.

And, the language of the Spirit of the Lord, and what He is saying in the present continuous tense is equally precise. That in the dispensation of the fulness of times, He might gather together into Christ the all. This He has cherished in His own mind with consultation from none other, of restoring the whole creation to find its one head in Christ

"That God may be all in all" = ina hi o teov panta en pasin.

The final goal of all God's redemptive plans as Paul has so well said in Romans 11:36. -Robertson Word Pictures Of N.T.-
