Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson continue their discussion of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians by discussing verses 4: 17-21, particularly the topic of unity in the Church.
As I mentioned in the last episode of Deep in Scripture, when we look around us today at adjacent street corners in almost any city, in the pages of listings in any phone book, and in the news when we hear of Christians acting anyway but holy or united, we might wonder what ever happened to the unity and diversity of which St. Paul describes in Ephesians? What has gone wrong? In todayʼs passage from Ephesians, we see St. Paul exhorting the newly baptised believers to do the very thing that is necessary to allow this unity within the Church to exist and grow and thrive. But he wasnʼt just speaking to first century Christians. He was also speaking to us. This is what weʼll be discussing today on Deep in Scripture.
