, 2020
ISBN: 9780802868428



The letter to the Ephesians provokes interpretive questions of authorship, audience, date, occasion, and purpose of writing. Interacting critically with this intense debate, Lynn Cohick provides an exegetically astute analysis of the six chapters of Ephesians. Cohick offers an insightful account of the epistle’s theology and soteriology as she attends to the letter’s expansive prose and lofty vision of God’s redemption.

Cohick investigates the complex relationship between Jews and gentiles within the text and in the broader cultural context as she analyzes the epistle’s description of the Church and its appeals for discipleship. Her extensive knowledge of the social realities of women and families in the ancient world is evident throughout. Cohick’s historically sensitive and theologically rich commentary will resource a new generation of scholars, pastors, and lay leaders.
