Bible Text: Ephesians 1:1-2:10 |


Looking at the first section of Ephesians, Roger opens some of the major themes, highlighting especially how the technical Greek terms that have gained their own weight in certain theological circles ('adoption', 'predestination', 'election', 'calling' and others) are couched in Hebraic ideas, and are often misconstrued when taken in a Greek and not a Jewish context. There are also comments on the role of the apostle, and the identity of Jesus. (119min)
