About-

The Apostle Paul leaves no stone unturned as he encourages, enlightens, and informs the Ephesian believers (and us) regarding their duties and responsibilities as Christ's followers. Yes, there are duties and responsibilities for professing Christians, just as there are duties and responsibilities in every phase of life whether it be as children/parents; employee/employer; student/teacher; or whatever field of endeavor one may pursue.

The apostle is addressing those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and seek to follow Him, which as Paul knows is not easy. Therefore, in this portion of Scripture he stresses certain truths that will strengthen each and every Christian as they journey through life. The elements may sound simple to learn, but they are difficult to practice day in and day out. What are they? Obedience, discipline, priorities, knowing your heavenly Father (not just knowing about Him), being strong disciples in the faith, and separating ourselves. Developing these traits requires a commitment to adhere to Christ's teachings and commands.

Paul then switches our attention from what we are to do as Christ's followers and states emphatically that we are to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. "Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles [schemes] of the devil" (Eph 6:1-11). Paul states unequivocally that we are to prepare to wrestle this implacable foe, since we belong to Christ and are His followers. He describes Satan, his evil characteristics and malevolent intentions. Christ recognized him for what he is. Should we do less? Unfortunately, in today's world we ignore him and fail to realize the harm he inflicts on ourselves and others.
Paul concludes this portion of Scripture on a high note. He urges us to be properly prepared; to recognize heresies; to watch and pray; to know the difference between false and true teachings; and to know the Lord Jesus Christ and what He experienced during His earthly ministry.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Robert Callahan's multi-volume commentary on Ephesians not only reflects 'real responsibility' and freedom under the Word, but it also beautifully exemplifies the very sort of active participation in Holy Scripture that Barth saw as so vital for the true freedom of a true congregation of Jesus Christ. It is a bold testimony and tour de force against the many secret and open rebellions in congregations throughout America today and I am thrilled to recommend it. It is full of important theological insights that could only derive from a serious engagement of the text and a long time Walking with Jesus."
--Richard Burnett
Professor of Systematic Theology
Erskine Theological Seminary
author of Karl Barth's Theological Exegesis


"Bob Callahan is a man who loves the Scriptures and loves the God to which they attest. His lessons on Ephesians are deep and rich. Bob has as his conversation partners the great minds and spirits of the church, and he is at once very readable and very faithful."
-Todd B. Jones
Pastor, First Presbyterian Church

"One would be hard-pressed to find a more thorough investigation of the treasures of Ephesians than what Mr. Callahan has written. The author has taken meticulous care to draw from the epistle as many of the theological riches as he could glean--and the reader could digest. No one will put his book down without a deeper appreciation for the relevancy of Paul's insights and teachings as given first to the church at Ephesus and now, by God's grace, to us."
-Norman H. McCrummen III
Senior Pastor, Spring Hill Presbyterian Church
Mobile, Alabama

"One of the most interesting recent developments in churches concerns the renewed focus on the doctrine of the Trinity. While historians of Christian thought and systematic theologians have been exploring the complex metaphysical issues, church members are beginning to recover the devotional and spiritual origins out of which this doctrine first rose into prominence. Robert Callahan's book is a fine example of the way in which a layman has approached this magnificent topic in a spirit of Bible study and prayer."

General Editor of Kerygma Bible Studies
Former Managing Director of John Knox Press
