Eph 1:22 [God] put all things in subjection under Christ's feet and gave Him as Head over all things

Word Study: “All” [panta] may be collective or individual

1) individual   1a) each, every, any, all, the whole, everyone, all things, everything

2) collective    2a) some of all types or categories

Mark 1:5 people from the whole Judean countryside [“all Judea” and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

Did all Judea and all Jerusalem confess their sins? Was all Judea, or all Jerusalem, baptized in Jordan?

2 Cor 5:14,15- Did Christ die for all or for all the Elect? Did He redeem all people or all sorts of people?

Rom 14:2, 20- “all” means “all edible food”

Gal 3:22- “panta” refers to “all people” (NIV- (whole world”) not literally all things cf v.26, 28

Also Rom 3:9-20, 11:32

Eph 4:15- grow up in all ways (become mature) as Christians cf v.13, 24

Eph 6:21- “all things” is limited to all prophesies
