Three similar expressions with almost identical meaning—huperperisseuo, huperperissos, huper ek perissou—are used in the New Testament to signify `abundance'. They are applied to the grace of God (Rom. 5. 20), which Bishop Moule described as super abounding 'with that mighty overflow of the bright ocean of love', and to the energy of God on His people's behalf (Eph. 3. 20): while the Christian abounds in astonishment at the miraculous healing power of the Lord (Mark 7. 37), in joy (2 Cor. 7. 4) and in prayer (1 Thess. 3. 10).
