Greek Lesson: “And You Hath He Quickened” in Ephesians 2:1

As you notice, the clause “hath he quickened” in Ephesians 2:1 is italicized in the King James Version, meaning it was supplied by the translators for the sake of translating the complete thought contained in the Greek Textus Receptus, from which the KJV was translated. Modern English translations forego including this clause and occasionally it is even asserted that the context of Ephesians 2 isn’t divine quickening.

In this video, guest contributor Robert Adam explains why the clause is fitting and appropriate to give us the full sense of Paul’s point in this portion of Ephesians.
