Entering into the Body of Christ

The letter to the Ephesians, like many early Christian letters, was a communal event, says the Rev. Daniel Strandlund in week two of our study. The entire Christian community would have gathered to hear someone read it and then would have spent many days discussing its contents. So reading Ephesians, says Strandlund, gives us an example not only of how to read the Bible but also how to live as part of the body of Christ, the Church.

We invite you to read Standlund’s reflection, with questions for thought and discussion and listen to a conversation with Daniel Strandlund and Marjorie George.

Go to the study.

  1. Excellent! I particularly liked Father Stranlund’s discussion about how Paul turned Rome’s terms–i.e., the body–on their head and used them with respect to the Kingdom of God.
