CONTEXT (of “Falling from Grace”)
COVENANT (Larger Context of Biblical Framework of Salvation)
Detailed Notes:
In 5:4 there are two images (taken as “losing salvation”): severed and fallen.
“You are severed from Christ” (ESV): katergeo is used 27x, 25 by Paul; ESV translates this as “use, nullify, abolish, overthrow, void, brought to nothing, pass away, destroy, gave up, brought to an end, taken away and released (with apo in Rom 7:6).” KJV is right in rendering it, “Christ is become of no effect unto you.” GS trans.: rendered void of Messiah’s [faithfulness].
In 5:4b: “You have fallen away from grace” Ekpipto 10x. The ESV renders this term: “chains fell off, run aground, run on the rocks, let go, failed, fall, lose.” In Acts 27 it is repeatedly used in the nautical context: “27:17 fearing that they would run aground 27:26 But we must run aground on some island. 27:29 And fearing that we might run on the rocks 27:32 soldiers cut away the ropes of the ship’s boat and let it go.”
GS trans. You were rendered void of Messiah’s [faithfulness], you who are seeking to be justified by Torah; you have run aground in [the sea of] grace.
