Ephesians Verse by Verse

From prison, the Apostle Paul wrote a letter to the Ephesian Christians that was packed with many grand theological themes: the mystery of the gospel, the work of the Trinity, the exalted nature of Christ, the gift of salvation, the church as the body of Christ, and spiritual warfare against the powers of darkness.

In Ephesians Verse by Verse, Grant R. Osborne offers a clear exposition of this complex book. He serves as a trustworthy guide as he unpacks Ephesians, explaining what it meant in its first-century setting and how it applies to us today. Throughout he focuses on the exalted Christ who is lord of all, and the unity of the church as the new creation in Christ.

Praise for Ephesians Verse by Verse

Grant Osborne’s Ephesians Verse by Verse is a commentary written by a churchman, for the church. Lucid and engaging, the exposition helpfully unpacks Paul’s letter in a way that dense logical arguments become clear and hard-to-understand theological concepts are made accessible. Here pastors and other students of God’s Word will find a rich resource for navigating Paul’s Ephesians.

—George H. Guthrie, Benjamin W. Perry Professor of Bible, Union University

As a pastor, I have often turned to Osborne’s work not only for sermon preparation but personal study. Osborne has a way of balancing academic work and an emphasis on practical application from the biblical truth he is expounding. This truly is a great resource for all Christians wanting to study Ephesians.

—Cody Kargus, senior pastor, Maranatha Evangelical Free Church (Rice Lake, WI)
