For what was the hidden mystery (Eph 3:9; Col 1:26,27) other than that which concerned the Word? So this mystery was formerly “hidden in God” (Eph 3:9), such that no one in the past knew those things which concern the Word clearly but we now enjoy “glorious riches” (Col 1:27) of the hidden mystery.

Translated by Brandon Rogers under the supervision of Prof. Glen L. Thompson, revised AMJ
