“This is not the way
That you learned
ὑμεῖς δὲ οὐχ οὕτως ἐμάθετε τὸν Χριστόν,
Paul said, “This is not the way (δὲ οὐχ οὕτως) that you learned (ἐμάθετε) about Christ (τὸν Χριστόν)!” Paul then made the obvious comparison with Jesus Christ. This gentile lifestyle and thought was not the way of Jesus Christ. They, the Christian gentiles in Ephesus, had learned about the new way of Christ. Their former gentile pagan lifestyle was not a Christian lifestyle. They had to follow the way of Jesus Christ. Do you lead a life of the old gentile pagan way?
