This is a quote recorded by Paul in Ephesians 5, regarding a saying about Christ. Was it something He heard when Christ came to Him or does the early Church record this quote originating elsewhere?
I've Googled the quote and came up with a commentary from St. John of Chrysostom. He compares them to John 3:20 (and naturally 21) and Matthew 22:32.
I'm curious if anyone knows if this is from an epistle or gospel that is not in the 66 Protestant books of the Bible?
(Ephesians 5:14 NKJV) Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light."
