Koinoneo. that is, they are in that condition, as their common lot.
p
"In like manner" is strictly "near to," as Phil. 2.27, "close to."
q
There is an intended difference here between the words for "partake" (koinoneo) and "took part in" (metecho), ver. 14. The first, referring to the children, is a common equal sharing of the nature. The second, referring to Christ, means, he took a part in it; and refers always to something outside myself, but which I take, or take a part in. The first work refers to a joint participation in that which belongs to me or to known fellowship. The second is used in ch. 5.13, "partakes of milk," in 1 Cor. 9.10, where the reaper gets a share in the sower's hope, and in 1 Cor. 10.17,21,30, "partake," where "partaking" (metecho) is proof of participation in fellowship (koinonia), ver. 16. The word does not say how far the taking share went.
r
Or "who had"; lit. "having," without reference to time. Cf. ch. 13.20.

blood and flesh: The great weight of the best MSS. supports the less usual order (א A B C D E M P, some cursives, and many ancient versions and fathers). The same order occurs in Eph. 6:12, and even in Polyaen. Strag. iii. 11. (Exp. of Heb., p.37)
blood and flesh: [In the RV,] is it not strange to consign the true order "blood and flesh" to the margin, and to adopt the other and commoner order in the text? (Bible Treasury 14:45)
in like manner: "Likewise," "in like manner," "similarly" (as I have rendered it), is the true force of παραπλησίως. It is not correct to say that the rendering in our common Bible is not sufficiently strong. Bengel gives similiter and remarks, not that it is equivalent to but "idem fere atque mox κατα πάντα per omnia v. 17, c. iv. 15." The Docetae may have perverted the word to their own wicked folly; but no scholar who examines the matter can deny that π. does not go as far as ὀμοίως or ἵσως; but as Alford justly remarks, it expresses "a general similitude, a likeness in the main: and so not to be pressed here, to extend to entire identity, nor on the other hand to imply, of purpose, partial diversity; but to be taken in its wide and open sense that He Himself also partook, in the main, in like manner with us, of our nature." The Docetae did not believe that Christ really μετέσχεν, which words do predicate sameness in essence. It is ignorance to found this on παραπλησίως, which simply asserts similarity of manner: while on the other hand, even this could not have been truthfully said, had not the Word been made flesh οὐ δοκητῶς ἀλλ’ ἀληθινῶς, ο’θ φανταστικῶς ἀλλ’ ὄντως. (Comp. Phil. 2:27.) (Bible Treasury 6:79)
