Excerpt from The Beautiful Word Pictures of the Epistle to the Ephesians: Or the Busy Man's Commentary Upon the Bible This is the most wonderful of all the epistles of Paul. Each word seems to shine out into the darkness of the human sky, and leaves a shining trail. This epistle was written when Paul was a prisoner. Chap. 3: 1, This was his first Romancaptivity, beginning A. D. 61 and lasting for two years. Onesimus was associated with Tychicus, the bearer of this letter. In the epistle to Philemon, sent by Onesimus, Paul prays for a lodging, verse 22, against his early arrival which he then confidently expected. Hence this epistle must be placed, as to date, late in the captivity. Not earlier than 63. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
