We discuss when it was written, why it was written, what the city of Ephesus was like at that time, and some of the most prevalent themes seen throughout the book. The first three chapters focus on reminding the church of the gospel and the work that Jesus did on the cross, while the last three chapters discuss how to live in light of that truth. We are looking forward to learning and growing alongside you as we study this book together over the next 7 weeks!
“A statement about unity in the form of an epistle” – Hans Bayer
“Peace through grace would be a concise summary of the book.” -John Stott
“Ephesians articulates general instruction in the truths of cosmic redemptive work of God in Christ, the unity of the church among diverse peoples, and proper conduct in the church, in the home, and in the world. It’s about unity and love in the bond of peace marking the work of the Savior as well as Christian’s grateful response to his free grace in their lives.” -ESV Study Bible Notes
