Questions about the Book of Ephesians

The book of Ephesians is the tenth book of the New Testament. This epistle to the Ephesians was written in Rome, The letter would then be to the saints and faithful in Christ Jesus anywhere. The doctrine of the Epistle confirms this view and it contains the highest church truth, but has nothing about church order. The Church here is the true Church, “His body,” not the local church, as in Philippians, and Corinthians. This Epistle can be divided into three parts: 1) The believer’s standing in Grace. 2) The walk and service of the believer. 3) The walk and warfare of the Spirit-filled believer. The author of this book is Paul. Listed below are questions on the book of Ephesians. These questions can be used freely for Sunday school or bible study to help all young Christians study the scriptures. My prayers are with you always and may God bless you in your studies.
