The book of Ephesians is the most thorough and wide-ranging account of what it means to be the Church, in the New Testament. The Ephesian Christians lived in the shadow of the massive temple to Artemis, as we read in Acts 19. That 'wonder of the ancient world' must have dominated not only the skyline but also the thinking of the city. Ephesus was a city full of spiritual darkness and occult power.
Why study the book of Exodus when we have the New Testament? Exodus is the theological book of the Bible. It is the book of Exodus that provides the theological framework within which the rest of the Bible operates. Genesis sets the scene for the whole Bible, but Exodus maps out the theological logic, the doctrinal details of the Bible.
The Galatians had enjoyed the incredible freedom that Jesus gives us. However, "religious" people had joined the Galatian fellowship, claiming to have deeper knowledge from the ancient Scriptures, claiming to have a bigger picture than the simple good news that they had heard.

They were falling into a kind of religious slavery, making them think more and more about their own religious efforts and leaving little room for Jesus. Paul was desperate to rescue the Galatians from this dreadful cult.

Peter explains how believers should live during difficult times and outlines the right attitude to have about persecution.
Book by Book: Isaiah with Alec Motyer Isaiah has been described as the fifth gospel because it is so full of the birth, life, death, resurrection, ascension and return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
