The Apostle Paul is credited with authoring the book of Ephesians around 62 A.D. Ephesians is the 10th book of the New Testament of the Christian Bible.
The book of Ephesians was written as a letter to the church of Ephesus, which was a populous, thriving port city located in Asia Minor. Paul wrote to the Ephesians while imprisoned in Rome. During this time, Paul also wrote other books of the New Testament, including Philippians, Philemon and Colossians. The book of Ephesians was written to emphasize that Jesus Christ died to reconcile the sins of the world and to implore Christians to live their lives in ways that honor God.
