New Defender's Study Bible Notes

2:51 was subject unto them. This is the first use in the New Testament of the Greek word here translated “subject unto,” also frequently translated “submit to” or “be obedient to.” Thus, when we are told to “be subject one to another” (I Peter 5:5) and “to every ordinance of man” (I Peter 2:13) and other such humbling acts, it helps to recall that this definitive act of submission was by Christ Himself.
