Ephesians presents modern readers with a difficult interpretive challenge. The themes found within the letter are deeply theological and the Apostle Paul writes with a complex writing style that is hard to decipher. Working through this biblical book is hard for even the most experienced biblical scholar.
The goal of the Osborne New Testament Commentaries is to cut through this complexity and provide an easy-to-read explanation of the text. In the newest volume in the series, Grant Osborne accomplishes this with aplomb. In Ephesians: Verse by Verse, Osborne presents the historical and literary background of this biblical book while showing how this ancient text is relevant to our lives today.
In this video, Osborne shares the vision behind his commentary series—revealing an IMAX experience of Scripture so that it speaks to us today.

Grant Osborne’s Ephesians: Verse by Verse is a commentary written by a churchman, for the church. Lucid and engaging, the exposition helpfully unpacks Paul’s letter in a way that dense logical arguments become clear and hard-to-understand theological concepts are made accessible… Here pastors and other students of God’s Word will find a rich resource for navigating Paul’s Ephesians.

As a pastor, I have often turned to Osborne’s work not only for sermon preparation but personal study. Osborne has a way of balancing academic work and an emphasis on practical application from the biblical truth he is expounding. This truly is a great resource for all Christians wanting to study Ephesians.
