Arc Commentary :: There are two main units in this passage: vv.1-4 and vv.5-9. I've connected these two main arcs as a series showing that Paul is advancing through this household code. They build on one another only in so far as one might insert a "next" between each pairing. Within these two units there are also two main units connected as a series: children and fathers (vv.1-3,4), slaves and masters (vv.5-8,9). The arc is fairly self explanatory, nothing too complicated, except for the section to slaves. Paul is continually restating himself in these verses! The initial idea, slaves serving masters (Ac) with fear and trembling (Mn) as to the Lord (Cf), is then explained further. The explanation also employs numerous comparisons so that the reader must conclude that Paul is ultimately talking about how to serve Christ and not merely human masters! Passage Commentary :: Paul is developing the household code from 5:21-33 and adds children/father and slave/master relationships to the mix. The central figure in all of these relationships is the male head of the household who would have been the husband, father, and master respectively. Wives, children, and slaves were to be in submission to this man and yet he also had a Christian duty to perform unto them. What is most noticeable in this passage is how Paul seems to motivate each individual towards their respective commands. Children: obey because this is right, honor so that you are blessed! Slaves: obey joyfully and serve diligently because you will receive this good back! (almost like the golden rule in promise form) Father/Master: do good to your children/slaves because you too have a Lord who will bring all deeds into judgment!
