ephesians 22
Ephesians 2
  • What is this Power and Hope? It is the hope that
  • Those of us who were Dead in Trespass and Sin
    • Dead is a great Greek word: nekrous. Just like it sounds.
    • Sin is a word we have seen before– hamartias.
    • Lets play connect the dots
ephesians 23
Ephesians 2

2 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

Ephesians 2

      • Cool doctrines
      • Nifty Ideas
      • Justifications for Sin
    • Children of Wrath
ephesians 25
Ephesians 2
  • Important to note that Paul, the Jew, shares the penalty of the Gentiles.
    • So, what is your list?
    • Connect the dots in this section so you see how the thought evolves.
  • Remember that this section comes after Chapter One, In Christ
    • Redemption
    • Inheritence
    • Sealed to the Day of Redemption

Ephesians 2
  • Why would Paul take us back to our Sinful state, after proving what Christ did for us?
  • What is he doing with this section?
ephesians 27
Ephesians 2
  • Verse 4--- But God. . .
    • First, we need to find the sentence Paul is offering:
    • 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus

    • Verse 7 Why would He Do this? The term in order can also be translated “For the Reason That”
