Having finally wrapped up their preparatory study of the Acts of the Apostles, Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson begin their examination of Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians.
Today we begin our study of St. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians, and as we do we recognize that Paul’s warning to the early Ephesian believers is equally true for us today. He had warned them that fierce wolves would come in among them, not sparing the flock, and from among their own selves would arise men speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them. Whenever we study the bible, we can’t escape the opinions of people that undercut the authority and trustworthiness of God’s Word. Sometimes these critical views are sincere attempts to understand the seeming contradictions and questions from within the biblical text; but sometimes these criticisms arise from fierce wolves. This is part of what we will be discussing today on Deep In Scripture.
