Additional Reading and Links
- Ephesians (and possibly Colossians, also) is considered by many scholars to be a pseudonymous letter, one written in the name of Paul by a disciple or follower of Paul. For an exploration of New Testament pseudepigrapha, read Stanley E. Porter and Craig A. Evans, “Pseudonymity and Pseudepigraphy,” Dictionary of New Testament Background: A Compendium of Contemporary Biblical Scholarship (Downers Grove, Illinois: InterVarsity Press, 2000).
- Translating the dangling participle in Ephesians 2:1–3 is difficult, as Bill Mounce explains in “Anacoluthon and Using Greek Tools (Eph 2:1),” BillMounce.com, last modified 22 May 2011.
