1 Corinthians 8:6

Yet to us there is one God, the Father (all hmin ei qeo o pathr). B omits all here, but the sense calls for it anyhow in this apodosis, a strong antithesis to the protasis (even if at least, kai eiper). Of whom (ex ou). As the source (ex) of the universe (ta panta as in Romans 11:36 ; Colossians 1:16 ) and also our goal is God (ei auton) as in Romans 11:36 where di autou is added whereas here di ou (through whom) and di autou (through him) point to Jesus Christ as the intermediate agent in creation as in Colossians 1:15-20 ; John 1:3 . Here Paul calls Jesus Lord (Kurio) and not God (qeo), though he does apply that word to him in Romans 9:5 ; Titus 2:13 ; Colossians 2:9 ; Acts 20:28 .
