Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 1:1

People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 1:1

Eph 1:1 The Foreordination of the Church SUMMARY OF EPHESIANS 1: The Salutation. Our Election and Adoption by Grace. This the Source of Salvation. The Mystery Made Known. The Inheritance. Prayer That Wisdom and Knowledge Be Given to the Saints. Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ. It was always the custom anciently to place the name of the writer at the beginning rather than at the end as with us. By the will of God. Emphasis is placed in most of Paul's epistles upon the fact that he was not an apostle by the appointment of man, but by the will of God. To the saints which are at Ephesus. All Christians were called saints in the early church. See the salutations of other Epistles. And to the faithful in Christ Jesus. The same as the saints. There is no article in the Greek before "faithful". A literal translation is "To the saints dwelling in Ephesus and faithful in Christ Jesus".

 

Comments for Ephesians 1:1

Master Soul Winner's comment on 2012-12-25 23:03:29:

We are enlightened by the truth that there is a vast difference between 'of Jesus Christ' and 'IN CHRIST' Because the first is the Person Jesus and the second is a PLACE and The Anointing.
