“When you are able
To read this,
You can perceive
Into the mystery
πρὸς ὃ δύνασθε ἀναγινώσκοντες νοῆσαι τὴν σύνεσίν μου ἐν τῷ μυστηρίῳ τοῦ Χριστοῦ,
Paul said, “When you able to read this (πρὸς ὃ δύνασθε ἀναγινώσκοντες), you can perceive or understand (νοῆσαι) my insight (τὴν σύνεσίν μου) into the mystery (ἐν τῷ μυστηρίῳ) of Christ (τοῦ Χριστοῦ).” Paul explained that if they were able to read this letter, they would understand his insights into the mystery of Jesus Christ. If they read this letter, they would begin to understand what Paul was talking about, his perception of the mystery of Christ. This letter would give them a better understanding about Jesus Christ, much like what Paul himself had. Do you try to understand the mystery of Jesus Christ better?
