About "Ephesians (Evangelical Exegetical Commentary Series)"
In his letter to the Ephesians, Paul emphasized "unity in the inaugurated new creation." The first part of his letter describes the salvation freely offered to us through faith in Christ. Paul then applies this truth in the second part, calling his readers to live a life of love. In this commentary, S.M. Baugh approaches Ephesians from a first-century perspective, examining ancient sources to determine Paul's meaning, while also interacting with recent scholarship. He then shows how the ancient context applies to the lives of believers today.
