The Epistle to the
Ephesians was written by Paul at Rome about the same time as that to
the Colossians, which in many points it resembles.
The Epistle to the Colossians is mainly polemical, designed to
refute certain theosophic errors that had crept into the church
there. That to the Ephesians does not seem to have originated in any
special circumstances, but is simply a letter springing from Paul's
love to the church there, and indicative of his earnest desire that
they should be fully instructed in the profound doctrines of the
gospel. It contains (1) the salutation (1:1, 2); (2) a general
description of the blessings the gospel reveals, as to their source,
means by which they are attained, purpose for which they are
bestowed, and their final result, with a fervent prayer for the
further spiritual enrichment of the Ephesians (1:3-2:10); (3) "a
record of that Marked change in spiritual position which the Gentile
believers now possessed, ending with an account of the writer's
selection to and qualification for the apostolate of heathendom, a
fact so considered as to keep them from being dispirited, and to
lead him to pray for enlarged spiritual benefactions on his absent
sympathizers" (2:12-3:21); (4) a chapter on unity as undisturbed by
diversity of gifts (4:1-16); (5) special injunctions bearing on
ordinary life (4:17-6:10); (6) the imagery of a spiritual warfare,
mission of Tychicus, and valedictory blessing (6:11-24).
Planting of the church at Ephesus. Paul's first and hurried visit
for the space of three months to Ephesus is recorded in Acts
18:19-21. The work he began on this occasion was carried forward by
Apollos (24-26) and Aquila and Priscilla. On his second visit, early
in the following year, he remained at Ephesus "three years," for he
found it was the key to the western provinces of Asia Minor. Here "a
great door and effectual" was opened to him (1 Corinthians 16:9),
and the church was established and strengthened by his assiduous
labours there (Acts 20:20, 31). From Ephesus as a centre the gospel
spread abroad "almost throughout all Asia" (19:26). The word
"mightily grew and prevailed" despite all the opposition and
persecution he encountered.
On his last journey to Jerusalem the apostle landed at Miletus, and
summoning together the elders of the church from Ephesus, delivered
to them his remarkable farewell charge (Acts 20:18-35), expecting to
see them no more.Place and date of the writing of the letter. It was
evidently written from Rome during Paul's first imprisonment (3:1;
4:1; 6:20), and probably soon after his arrival there, about the
year 62, four years after he had parted with the Ephesian elders at
