Theodoret of Cyrus: Lordship Common to Father and Son

Paul, God's slave and apostle of Jesus Christ by faith of God's elect and knowledge of the truth in matters of religion, in hope of eternal life (vv.1-2). He calls himself a slave indiscriminately, sometimes Christ's, sometimes God's: he knew the lordship was held in common by both.
