    Paul’s epistle to Ephesus may have been written during his imprisonment at Caesarea Maritima as described at the end of Acts. For a discussion of that possibility, see Thomas A. Wayment, From Persecutor to Apostle: A Biography of Paul (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, ), – Anderson dates the epistle to the same time (circa AD 61) but places Paul in Rome when he wrote (see Richard.

It is a strange fact that St. Augustine, in quoting iii.2, describes the passage as "said by John in his Epistle to the Parthians." This statement is a riddle which no commentator has been.

Introduction Life is obviously filled with critical concerns and no place is this more evident than in the pastoral responsibilities God has entrusted to the leadership of church.

Because of the work of the adversary, these concerns have existed from the very early days of the church, but in view of Paul’s warnings in 2 Timothy 3 regarding the increase of apostasy in the last days and what.

This section introduces the principal character of the book and presents in a concise statement John’s interpretation of him. All else in the book is rooted in and grows out of this prologue.

His pre-incarnate glory, As the Word of God, 1. As the Creator of the universe, As the Light of men, His incarnate glory, This is more important than to offer all of the burnt offerings and sacrifices required in the law."

The book of Hebrews begins, "In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son," (Hebrews a NIV).
