Paul’s Letter to the Church in Ephesus

As we read the epistles addressed to emerging churches in cities of the Roman Empire, we are able to capture the spirit and concerns of the early followers of Christ.  In those days, the religion that would eventually be known as “Christianity” was referred to simply as “The Way.”   There was no existing Christian culture to guide these new converts as they attempted to be faithful followers of Christ.

In his letter to the community of believers in the city of Ephesus, the Apostle Paul used a variety of metaphors to help them understand their relationship to the Risen Christ.  He offered practical advice concerning the implications of this relationship for their daily lives.
