Introduction to Ephesians, Part 2 (Ephesians 1:1)

June 29, 2014 Speaker: Adam Olean Series: Ephesians

Scripture: Ephesians 1:1–6:24

In our second week introducing Paul's epistle to the Ephesians, we consider the letter's recipients and destination. With respect to its destination, we address an important textual variant in some detail since some of our earliest manuscripts of Paul's letters are missing the words "in Ephesus" (Eph 1:1). Having concluded that Paul did indeed write to the Ephesians, we will discuss in a future Sunday school the character of Ephesus and its significance for interpreting Paul's letter.

The following internet links were mentioned during this Sunday school and/or might be found useful for further study:
