Saint Paul addresses issues at the church of Ephesus that are still important for today. 

These topics include:

Law and grace

The role of men

and women in the


Christian Maturity

and church


The Gospel and

It’s ministry

The church and

its social


Contemporary false

teachers and the

love of money

Notice that the two halves of the chiasm are divided into “instructions” and then “injunctions.”  This is because Paul uses the imperative mood 38 times in the second half of the letter (compared to 4x in the first half).
