Ephesians 4-6: Translation and Commentary on Chapters 4-6 Markus Barth Encompassing the body of Pauline theology, Ephesians volumes 34 and 34A of the acclaimed Anchor Bible series has been called the crown of St Paul s writings, yet both its authorship and addressees are the subject of continuing dispute Through line by line examination of its vocabulary, its difficult style, its Qumran and Gnostic affinities, its parallels with and disEncompassing the body of Pauline theology, Ephesians volumes 34 and 34A of the acclaimed Anchor Bible series has been called the crown of St Paul s writings, yet both its authorship and addressees are the subject of continuing dispute Through line by line examination of its vocabulary, its difficult style, its Qumran and Gnostic affinities, its parallels with and distinctions from the undisputed Pauline corpus, its use of the Old Testament, and its dialogue with orthodox and heretical Judaism, Markus Barth demonstrates that Paul was almost certainly the author And, after exploring previous explications of this hymnic and admonitory epistle in detail, he concludes that it was intended for Gentile Christians converted after Paul s visits to Ephesus.On this basis, Barth reexamines the relationship between Israel and the church, discounting the thesis that Ephesians suggests an early Catholic, or high ecclesiastic or sacramental doctrine Instead, he finds in this letter a statement of the social reconciliation which conditions the salvation of the individual And reevaluating the section describing the relation between husband and wife, he offers an alternative to the traditional notion that Paul degrades women or belittles their rights and their dignity.In these two volumes Barth has followed the structure of Ephesians upon the praise of God chapters 1 3 are based the admonitions chapters 4 6 But just as the epistle is an integral whole, so is the author s commentary Through his special understanding and love of the apostle Paul, Markus Barth reopens to modern man the ancient message of love, worship and joy.

One thought on “Ephesians 4-6: Translation and Commentary on Chapters 4-6

  1. David

    While Markus Barth s Karl Barth s son commentary on Ephesians and Colossians is not written from a conservative stance mine , I do find his insights frequently helpful It is well researched If you are a conservative, this should not be your first commentary on Ephesians, but it does have helpful insights and is worth obtaining if you have the funds for it Ditto commentary on Colossians and Philemon.

  2. Jim

    Although I did not always agree with Barth conclusions in this world class commentary he discussion was always helpful His knowledge of the text is encyclopedic and his theological insight profound This is an extravagant commentary on a very important theological text I highly recommend Marcus Barth s two volume commentary.
