Moule examines when Paul wrote Ephesians, what prompted Paul to write it and the subject matter of Ephesians. Moule analyzes a number of Greek words to arrive at his conclusions. Moule also discusses the application of Ephesians to a Christian life.
Purpose of the Studies--The Epistle is a Divine Scripture--Its genuineness and authenticity--Doubts on these points--Reply, and reflections on the subject.
Date of the Epistle--It was written at Rome--And probably late in St Paul's first imprisonment there--In what sense was it addressed 'to Ephesus'?--Ussher's and Lightfoot's treatments of the problem--'The Epistle from Laodicea' was our Ephesians.
Occasion of the writing of the Epistle--St Paul's residence and pastorate at Ephesus--The 'Colossian Heresy'--Its apparent characteristics--This Epistle was written to meet it in advance--By a full presentation of the glory of Christ.
The subject pursued--The supreme place of Christ in the Epistle--How this met the special spiritual danger in view--Significance of this for our own day--The possible scene and details of the writing of the Epistle.
The Epistle approached for direct study--As if it were a newly-discovered document--Its doctrine of the Eternal Father--His primacy--Dr A. Bonar's illustration--The Father's Creatorship--Wrath--Sovereignty--Love--His relation to the redeeming Son--In whom alone we can meet Him. in peace--His relation to the Holy Spirit.
The account in the Epistle of the Father's relation to the Church--Examinations in detail of Eph_2:8-9 --His Glory manifested through the Church--Children of God--Temple of God--The doctrine of the Epistle about the Holy Spirit--Veni Creator.
The Epistle examined for its account of the Christian--Not the unusual but the normal Christian--His privileges and inner experience--Eternal provision made for him--He 'begins fallen'--His recovery and blessings in Christ--Session in the heavenly places--All is mercy--His salvation complete from one view-point, progressive from another--These truths are facts for us in our day.
The account in the Epistle of the Christian's life--The law of holiness--Holiness the 'final cause' of faith--The Christian is before all things humble--Why this must be so--Yet not without will and tone--Truthful--Pure--Watchful--Serviceable--'A Puritan life'--The Christian home--Slavery--Lessons from the policy of the Gospel towards slavery--The conflict of the Christian with evil powers--Conclusion--Renan's estimate of St Paul--The believer's estimate of him.
