For the Glory of God: Christ and the Church in Ephesians


While suffering in chains the apostle Paul exulted in the glory of God as revealed in the gospel of freedom, resulting in a brief letter to the Ephesian Christians packed with theological weight and practical instruction. Here Paul reflects on predestination, and the Holy Spirit in the Christian life, and reconciliation among races. The apostle encourages unity among believers that collectively form the body of Christ, unity that should take concrete form in marriages and the relationship between parents and children and even masters and slaves. He wants his readers to recognize that they are involved in a spiritual battle against demonic forces, a battle that requires the Christian to wear the full armor of God. This year’s Berean Study Series includes thirteen lessons covering each major section of Ephesians. Each lesson encourages Christians today to take seriously the call of God so that they may grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ.

The Berean Study Series is a 13-lesson resource, consisting of 13 videos and corresponding study guides (available as a pdf file or printed book) for each lesson. Each 25-minute video message can stand on its own or be used as a springboard for class discussion. These practical lessons have been designed to strengthen your Bible study curriculum. How? Use this resource as a congregational summer series or plug the video series in for a quarter of study in an adult Bible class or personal devotion time.
