Ephesians 1: The Lyric and Music of the Gospel

By Russ Ramsey

There’s a clip from an old Peanuts cartoon where Schroeder is playing his little piano while Lucy leans against it, looking lovingly into his eyes. Snoopy edges his way into the frame, bopping a little to the groove. Before long, he launches into a full-on, joy-filled dance—head thrown back, arms outstretched, eyes closed, lost in the beauty of the song.

Introduction to Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians

By Michael Card

William Lane wrote, “We must engage Scripture at the level of the informed imagination.” If the imagination provides a bridge between the heart and the mind, reintegrating what was disintegrated by the Fall (Dt 6:4f), then the way we approach the Bible will be affected in several ways.

By Jonathan Rogers

An Invitation to Study Ephesians Together & An Interview with Stephen Trafton

By Heidi Johnston
