Exploring Paul's letter to the Ephesians

Ephesians is an epistle written by the Apostle Paul and addressed to the Christians at Ephesus, a city on the western coast of Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey). This epistle is one of four so-called Prison Letters (the others are Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon) and is commonly grouped with Colossians due to overlapping themes and structure. Ephesians might have been a circular letter sent to multiple churches in the region, including the congregation at Ephesus.

The main purpose of the letter is to encourage and build up these Christian believers in this very affluent, albeit immoral, city of about 300,000 people.
