The Epistle to the Ephesians

The Epistle to the Ephesians

Dear URC Devotions

I hope you’ve found our working through the Apostles’ Creed interesting and useful.  Between now and early September we will be reading though the Epistle to the Ephesians.

Until the late 18th Century this epistle was universally thought to have been written by the Apostle Paul.  Opinion is now divided between those who believe that Paul wrote it and those who believe it was written by a disciple of his in his style.  

The main themes of the letter are casting a model of Church as the body of Christ and urging Christians to recognise the unity that we have due to our relationship with Christ. The final part of the letter gives practical advice on how to live a holy life.  

We hope you find this a help to you in your journey of everyday discipleship.

with every good wish
