During His time on earth, Jesus spent more time with His disciples than anyone else. They got to know His voice, thoughts, mannerisms, pet peeves and perhaps even His unique facial expressions. When He was crucified, they were devastated in ways to which few of us can relate.
Paul wrote the letter to the church at Ephesus while he was in prison for preaching the gospel. It’s kind of amazing that this book so full of powerful positive messages was penned from a place of confinement. Clearly, nothing could stop Paul from sharing his vision.
