Ephesians 2 – One New Society
Ephesians 2:1-10 applies the glorious gospel that is put on display through chapter 1 more directly to us. 2:11-22 then shows how the gospel of Jesus Christ shapes the new society of God’s Kingdom. The first half is the favorite of Christians who like to soak in the ascendant theology of the gospel, while the second half tends to be favored by Christians who prefer to focus on the outworking in our lives, particularly toward reconciliation. By walking through the whole chapter at once we will see that the two should not and must not be divided.
