 All this flowed from an immense and all-powerful truth. God was in Christ. But then, in order that others might have a part with him, and the Apostle be the minister of this, it was also necessary that Christ should be made sin for us. One of these truths presents the character in which God has drawn nigh to us; the other, the efficacy of that which has been wrought for the believer. (2 Corinthians 4 by J.N. Darby)
 When the Son of man was cast out of the world, when it is no longer God in Christ reconciling the world and rising above every offense, He put the word of the reconciliation in chosen vessels; and as we have had the character of God's action in Christ in the days of His flesh, so here follows their character as sent out to testify of Him. (Notes on 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 by W. Kelly)

Christ ^: the Revisers avoid the error of the Five Clergymen, but the omission of the comma after Christ vitiates their rendering as compared with that of the Authorized Version. (Bible Treasury 13:368)
world: There is no real ground for Bishop Middleton's remark (Doctrine of the Greek Article, pp.350,351, Rose's ed. 1845) that κόσμος here and in Galatians 6:14 is one of those words which partake of the nature of proper names, and so dispense with the article exceptionally in these two instances. The true reason has nothing to do with its emphatic position, and simply is that the word is used characteristically in both, and hence, though we cannot so express it in English, more forcibly than if "the" world in either case were presented as an objective fact. Hence, the critical reading which drops not only ὀ but τῷ; in Galatians 6:14 is right. Further, it is not the fact that Plutarch (περὶ Στωικ. ἐναντ) omits the article with κόσμος for it is inserted in both Reiske's ed. 1778, x.848, and Wyttenbach's, Oxon. 1800,v.193. The Bishop's citation was from an old edition and a bad text. Winer and T. S. Green follow in the same wake, classing κ. with many other words like ἤλιος, γῆ, which may drop the article, as nearly equivalent to proper names. This is as to all defect of analysis. They probably misled Alford and Ellicott, but not Dr. Lightfoot, who evidently sees nothing irregular, and simply remarks that the sentence thus (i.e., by the anarthrous form) gains in terseness. So in our passage the entire clause is intentionally and essentially characteristic, θεὸς ἦν Χριστῷ κόσμον καταλλάσσων ἐαυτῷ, and τόν would have brought in fact, which is exactly what is not intended, any more than καταλλάσσων = reconciliavit as Wetstein says. It is the aspect or bearing of His presence in Christ, not an accomplished fact (which is expressed by the aorist part. in verse 18. (Notes on 2 Cor., p.115-116)
