NT343 Book Study: Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians

not enough ratings
Learn from New Testament and Pauline studies expert Dr. Lynn Cohick as she guides you through each chapter and theological concept in Ephesians, including salvation, the Trinity, and the church. She devotes additional time to exploring God’s vision for marriage, and the institution of slavery. She also explains various interpretive theories—like the new perspective on Paul—and how these theories compare with traditional ideas. Dr. Cohick’s goal is for you to become better equipped to read the rest of Paul’s letters and more confident in reading the Bible as a whole by better understanding the theology, history, and interpretive possibilities of Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians, and for you to grow in your faith each step of the way.
