Unlike Paul’s letters to the Galatians or the Corinthians, the letter to the Ephesians contains almost no clues about the situation and issues its recipients faced. Nevertheless, the letter vividly depicts how God’s will revealed in Christ reorients believers’ lives toward unity, mutual respect, submission, and love—in short, new life in Christ, relying on his power and strength. In this Tyndale Commentary, Darrell Bock shows how this precious jewel of a letter combines gospel doctrine, enablement, and exhortation to life.

The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties.

In the new New Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Theology. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

“In the note of praise as a whole, three divine agents also will be named: the Father, the Christ and the Holy Spirit. The Father is the source of blessing. The Son is the one in whom blessing is mediated. The Spirit is the one who is given both as enablement and as a down payment of more to come. The unit proceeds with the election by the Father (vv. 4–6), the redemption by the Son (vv. 7–12) and the seal of the Spirit (vv. 13–14). Each subunit ends with the refrain ‘to the praise of his glory’.” (Page 33)

“Filling goes beyond indwelling by the Spirit. Indwelling refers to the Spirit taking residence within a believer, while filling is the direction or control the indwelling Spirit possesses as the believer draws on his presence.” (Page 164)

“We may confidently affirm that Ephesians was written to promote unity, particularly between Jew and Gentile, to affirm the supremacy of Christ over every power, and to remind believers of their privileges in Christ.” (Page 2)

“The letter originally served as an exhortation to a region of the church about what salvation is and what to do with that salvation as a result. It examines where the church as a community should be headed, with a crucial reminder that God in his grace has already given them all they need to get there.” (Page 2)

“If this were a psalm, we would be thinking of a praise psalm, where God is acclaimed” (Page 32)

    What happens if you buy this edition of Ephesians, but you also have the previous edition? Can you view either one, or will the new edition override the old one?
