With the ecumenical movement gaining impetus in today's world, ecclesiological discussions are common. What does church actually mean? Is it a visible organization or a spiritual organism? Who makes up its membership? Nearly two millenniums ago, the apostle Paul spoke on these and similar issues in his letter to the Ephesian believers.
This encouraging commentary focuses on a Pauline epistle that nearly bursts at the seams with life-changing doctrine. The scriptural concept of election, inspiring teachings on the doctrine and duties of the church, and other highlights from the New Testament letter receive careful attention.
This Everyman's Bible Commentary is based upon the author's own translation of the scriptural text.
