Commentary on Ephesians

Commentary on Ephesians

Published by Jamie Berry
Paul's Letter to the Ephesians amounts to a short course in theology. Because of its majestic and exalted content, it has been hailed as "The Queen of the Epistles." Although it does not cover every theological topic, several central truths that are not explicitly stated are nevertheless assumed or implied. A firm theological foundation leads to spiritual stability, so that God's people will not be tossed here and there by every wind of doctrine. In a day when even professing Christians tolerate just about every "ism" there is, it is all the more important for us to insist on the biblical gospel, that it is God alone who, through Christ alone, sovereignly predestinates, regenerates, reconciles, sanctifies, and establishes his people. This commentary aims to help beginning readers grasp the main theological themes in Paul's letter in a logical and coherent fashion, although the more advanced readers will probably find some useful insights and apt statements as well.
