In his introduction, Eadie states that his aim for his Colossians commentary is “to trace and illustrate the thoughts of the writer; to arrive at a knowledge of the truths which he has communicated, by an analysis of the words which he has employed.” This thorough commentary begins with a contextual introduction, followed by detailed commentary on the Greek text. He identifies the thrust of Paul’s ideas in the books and connects them to other Pauline writings.

“The energy which created is alone competent to sustain, every successive moment of providence being, as it were, a successive act of creation. In Him this sustentation of all things reposes. He is the condition of their primary and prolonged being. What a vast view of Christ’s dignity! His arm upholds the universe, and if it were withdrawn, all things would fade into their original non-existence. His great empire depends upon Him in all its provinces—life, mind, sensation and matter; atoms beneath us to which geology has not descended, and stars beyond us to which astronomy has never penetrated. He feeds the sun with fuel, and vails the moon in beauty. He guides the planets on their journey, and keeps them from collision and disorder.” (Page 57)

“Christ was not merely a theme to be idly contemplated or admired in a supine and listless reverie; nor a creed to be carelessly laid up as in a distant and inaccessible deposit; nor an impulse which might produce a passing and periodical vibration, and then sink into abeyance and exhaustion; but a power, which, in diffusing itself over mind and heart, provided for its own palpable manifestation and recognition in the daily life. For there could be no walking in Him, without the previous reception of Him.” (Page 123)

“To walk worthy of the Lord, is to feel the solemn bond of redeeming blood, to enshrine the image of Him who shed it, to breathe His spirit and act in harmony with His example, to exhibit His temperament in its elements of purity, piety, and love, to be in the world as He was in the world, to be good and to do good, and to show by the whole demeanour that His law is the rule which governs, and His glory the aim which elevates and directs.” (Page 24)

In 1835, Eadie became a minister at the Cambridge Street Church is Glasgow. In addition to his pastoral duties, Eadie became a professor of biblical literature and hermeneutics at the United Presbyterian Divinity Hall, and he received his D.D. from St. Andrews in 1850.
