[Ephesians] - A Collaborative Study

My friend Pinakidion and I are going to begin a series on the book of Ephesians. All of our posts will begin with [Ephesians] so the Googlers can find it.

This should call me higher in my Bible study. My typical study involves reading and typing my comments as I go and posting them to the blog as soon as they are done. He's suggested we follow a more rigorous pattern from the book Reading the Bible for All Its Worth. It will mean I will read it through several times in several versions.

Our first posts, an overview of the book and the context after reading it through in one sitting, will be on Monday. We'll then be posting roughly a chapter at a time, Thursdays and Mondays from then on out.

We won't be using any commentaries, but Bible dictionaries and similar reference works are OK. See Pinakidion's post on this for more info on the process.

You're welcome to join us, if you feel so inclined. Pinakidion's friend Scott is planning on it.

It ought to be fun, in a mind expanding sort of way.

Great, are you going to post them on your poetry blog or just do the study on your own?

So where's your 1ee7 April Fool's post? Neither you nor pink had anything fun. I was hoping for something like, "Columbus Church Throws In With Mainline and Signs Christian Affirmation". Or, perhaps, "Local B'Hai Group Ratifies Plan For United Cooperation." But, alas...

Dude - I had this all typed up, it was going to be awesome! But you couldn't be patient and you ruined it. You buyin' that?

Maybe the joke was the lack of a joke. You come around with high expectations and then - April Fools!

Or maybe I'm just not that clever.

I'll be just adding on to whatever you post. Mostly just study on my own. Yesterday I read all of Ephesians in the Amplified bible, and that perspective is quite enlightening. I see now that the whole focus of that letter is the will of God (that sounds a little ambiguous, but the message is pretty direct). It's like, "I have given you what you don't deserve, and here is what to do about it…" But I'll comment on your lessons when you post them.

I did something, just late in the day.

Merry Christmas!

Dude, you got me. I went and looked last night. :-P
