United to Christ, Walking in the Spirit: A Theology of Ephesians
Title: United to Christ, Walking in the Spirit: A Theology of Ephesians
Join New Testament Scholar Benjamin Merkle as He Explores the Major Themes of the Book of Ephesians
Paul wrote Ephesians as instruction and encouragement for the church in Ephesus, and it has continued to influence the church for centuries. This New Testament book specifically focuses on the believer’s union with Christ and our inability to stand before God without the work of Jesus Christ and the Spirit, both of which are still essential today.
In this addition to the New Testament Theology series, scholar Benjamin Merkle offers an accessible summary of the theology of Ephesians that highlights God’s work in salvation and how Christians should respond. Each chapter focuses on a key theological theme—the plan of God, union with Christ, walking according to the Spirit, unity of the church, and spiritual warfare in the present age—and why it is relevant for the church today.
