Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book A Profound Mystery: The Use of the Old Testament in Ephesians contains the table of contents and the acknowledgements. It is an astonishing but unnoticed fact that Ephesians, which is of comparable length to Galatians, incorporates more Old Testament (OT) words and phrases than the latter. The marginal references of the Nestle-Aland edition of the Greek text confirm this. This book on the use of the OT in Ephesians aims to fill a gap in scholarly exploration of this fascinating epistle. First, it hopes to contribute towards a balanced evaluation of the diversity of traditions employed in Ephesians. This allows, secondly, a better appraisal of the author's religio-cultural background than hitherto. Third, the appropriation of OT material is related to what can be assumed to have been the background of the recipients.

Keywords: Ephesians; Old Testament (OT)
