A thorough and sensitive discussion of the letter's authorship and its close affinity to Colossians are included as well as treatments of cosmic Christology, the church's relation to Judaism, the church and the world, the continuing impact of Ephesians, Christ-centered eschatology, and salvation as a completed event. This is a scholarly work.

Review 1 for Ephesians: Word Biblical Commentary [WBC]
Thought these were conservative
Date:May 5, 2011
I bought this commentary thinking that it came from a conservative viewpoint. Very disappointed to find out right off that the author denies Pauline authorship of Ephesians. The scholarship is thorough, but this book will be hard to trust knowing its coming from such a critical viewpoint.

Review 2 for Ephesians: Word Biblical Commentary [WBC]

Lincoln's is a solid, top tier commentary. While not supporting Pauline authorship, Lincoln's work with the text is still very good and should be consulted in any in-depth work with this epistle.
