Christ the exalted Lord is the constant theme of the epistle to the Ephesians. Christ is always and everywhere the exalted Lord, and he is the exalted Lord expressly for the benefit of his people, the church. The remarkable way in which the benefits of Christ’s lordship are enjoyed by his people means that, in Ephesians, Christology is inextricably focused upon the doctrine of the church, a detail set in contrast with other letters by Paul.

The upshot of this is that Ephesians represents a letter of eulogy, prayer, exhortation, and instruction where the enthroned and cosmic Christ is constantly seen as bestowing blessing after blessing on his people, the church. This engages every subject mentioned in the letter. Salvation, prayer, faith, the church, the Gospel, regeneration, and Christian living are all variations of the one symphony, the blessings ‘in the heavenly places’ which Christ the exalted Lord gives to his church. This is the keynote of this commentary.

“There is the authority of salvation. An author commissioned by the will of God; a readership made holy and believing through a relationship with Christ; and a salutation leaving behind the niceties of courteous greetings in the interests of a transforming grace and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ—all imply a salvation that is sovereign. The divine omnipotence in salvation introduces this letter and Paul goes on immediately to elaborate this theme. The divine authority of salvation should start us off in reading Ephesians and grow in our perception with every line of its inspired truth.” (Page 25)

“Faith is both active and productive in that sense. When we sing the carol, ‘O come all ye faithful” (Page 20)

“the realm of reality, the location where the real spiritual forces of life are at work.” (Page 11)

“to repose personal reliance upon him with a view to salvation” (Page 20)

“God’s Spirit, not our spirit, is in control and orders our groanings in line with God’s will” (Pages 373–374)

This is a simple and helpful exposition, by an experienced pastor as well as an able scholar.

Harry Uprichard’s book deserves a wide readership. It would make an ideal outline for a midweek Bible study group. It will most certainly find a special place on the shelf of the pastor concerned with regularly feeding ‘the flock of Christ.’
