Chapter Summary

The fragmental affinity between Eph. and Col. is regarded as the greatest difficulty in the critical historical study of Eph. This chapter presents a list of parallel places in which three corresponding words separated only by short intervals are found. Different forms of verbs from the same root have been classified as identical. It also equates totally or partly concurrent designations indicating the person of Jesus Christ. The parallelism between Eph. 1:7 and Co1. 1:14 suggests the priority of Eph. in view of the fact that in Eph. the words could not be omitted without affecting the perisope as a whole. The corresponding fragments in Eph. and the HP originate in the fact that those who drew up Eph. drew on and had access to the same spiritual inheritance as those who took part in the writing of the HP. Eph. and the HP are products of the same circle.
