Colossians 3:4

When Christ shall be manifested (otan o Cristo panerwqh). Indefinite temporal clause with otan and the first aorist passive subjunctive of panerow, "whenever Christ is manifested," a reference to the second coming of Christ as looked for and longed for, but wholly uncertain as to time. See this same verb used of the second coming in 1 John 3:2 . Ye also together with him (kai umei sun autwi). That is the joy of this blessed hope. He repeats the verb about us panerwqhsesqe (future passive indicative) and adds en doxh (in glory). Not to respond to this high appeal is to be like Bunyan's man with the muck-rake.
