Chapter Summary

In a comparison between the disposition and elements of Ephesus (Eph.) with those of the other epistles, it should be taken into account that the possibility exists that these epistles may not have been preserved in their original form. Thus, the authenticity of the doxology in R16:25-27 is more or less generally rejected. When comparing Eph. with the other epistles of the CP proper, it transpired that as far as surveyability is concerned, there exists a great difference in disposition with 1 and 2 C., Phil. and 1 and 2 Th. Eph., in disposition and the nature of the elements contained in it, corresponds largely with R., is close to Gal. and Co1. and moreover shows frequent affinity with the remaining epistles. Meanwhile, there are also dissimilarities between the disposition of Eph. and that of the other epistles.
