• Ephesians


An Exegetical and Theological Exposition of Holy Scripture
David Dockery, Dr. Paige Patterson, E. Ray Clendenen, Richard R. Melick, Jr., Terry L. Wilder

The New American Commentary is for those who have been seeking a commentary that honors the Scriptures, represents the finest in contemporary evangelical scholarship, and lends itself to the practical work of preaching and teaching. This series serves a minister’s friend and a student’s guide.

The New American Commentary assumes the inerrancy of Scripture, focuses on the intrinsic theological and exegetical concerns of each biblical book, and engages the range of issues raised in contemporary biblical scholarship. Drawing on the knowledge and skills of over forty scholars and encompassing forty volumes, the NAC brings together scholarship and piety to produce a tool that enhances and supports the life of the church.

In Ephesians Paul encouraged the church, the body of Christ, "built" from saved Jews and Gentiles, to conduct herself in a manner consistent with her calling to unity in Christ Jesus. Saved Jews and Gentiles are a holy temple fitted together and "growing." They are a corporate new man, a living body being "built."

The author of Ephesians is Terry Wilder.
