Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Authenticity of Ephesians presents the table of contents and the author's note. The book investigates the disposition of the epistle and some details of style. It focuses to test words and expressions used in this epistle against images and conceptions they were connected with in contemporary literature. This procedure was essential since the defenders of the epistle on the one hand, generally tend to pay little attention to the religio-historical background of these words and expressions, whilst those, on the other hand, who dispute the authenticity of the epistle, often incorrectly relate this kind of material with syncretism and Gnosticism.

Keywords: Ephesians; Gnosticism
