Study Questions

  1. 1. Read the doxology of 1:3–14 and contemplate how each spiritual blessing mentioned there is mediated to believers through Jesus Christ. How do the blessings come “in him”?
  2. Articulate the logic driving the argument from 2:1 to 4:16. How does “salvation by grace through faith” construct the body of Christ?
  3. What is ecclesiology?
  4. Memorize Ephesians 5:1-2.
