People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 1:15


Eph 1:15 After I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus. This verse has been thought to show that Paul was not personally acquainted with those to whom he wrote, and hence that this letter could not be addressed to the Ephesians; but he used similar language of Philemon, one of his own converts. See Phm 1:5. The language is natural if Paul left Ephesus in the spring of A.D. 57, and wrote this letter about the close of A.D. 62 (Conybeare and Howson), more than five years after. During this period he could only know of the faith and love of the Ephesians by what he heard.

    The believer is sealed with the promised Holy Spirit when he/she believed in Christ Jesus. This is the heritage of every Christian believer. No Christian believer needs to doubt if he/she has the Holy Spirit. Glory

    To Joyce Cardoza - Since you must know which scriptures aren't for all of us - I wish you had listed 3-4 on here so I could look them up ............
  • Joyce Cardoza
    God said you must rightly devide the word, and we are also in the dispensation of Grace, the entire Bible is written for us, but not every verse is addressed to us, or written about us, if you read the red letters of Jesus Christ, then read what He taught after he paid our sin debt, and you really knew how to read and teach the truth, you would not teach the way you do, Ephesians 2:8 it was hidden
