His devotees need to start studying the bible for themselves, and then they will surely have to recognize this blowhard is anything but a true man of God. He is an arrogant greedy redneck windbag spewing lies and being a total embarressment to true Christians, and he brings shame upon the Holy Name of the Son of God. He needs to repent, and return the money he's stolen from the people he has decieved, but he's so arrogant, he won't. However, we shan't worry about him or the other corrupted blots on Christendom, since judgment is beginning at the household of God, and God himself will deal with these ravanous greedy wolves who steal and lie to the gullible ones who give to him. God has been exposing false ministries right and left lately. Gothards empire will crumble right along with them,.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is my sincere prayer that you are being Blessed even as you read this e-mail.

The years between Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar total only 10, but are filled with murder, intrigue, conspiracy, and political decline. Nebuchadnezzar was succeeded by his Evil-
merodach (see 2 King 25:27-30; Jeremiah 52:31-34) who Had reigned for only two years (562-560 B.C.) when he was murdered by his brother-in-law, Neriglissar (called Nergal-sharezer in Jer 39:3, 13). After a brief reign (559-556 B.C.) Neriglissar died, leaving the kingdom in the hands of his son, Labashi-marduk. The latter lasted only two months before being killed by an assassin and succeeded by Nabonidus. Nabonidus, who was probably the son-in-law of Nebuchadnezzar, reigned for some 16 years (555-539 B.C.). Although he left the kingdom in the hands of his son Belshazzar for much of the time,(553-539 B.C.), Nabonidus was able to restore a measure of glory to Babylon. Belshazzar ruled as king during the lst yers of Babylon. It is not evident until the end of the chapter, but while Belshazzar considered the city unassailable because of its massive walls, and therefore felt confident to hold a banquet in the face of military threat.
5.5 The plaster of the wall of the king’s palace: Archaeologists have unearthed a room on the site of ancient Babylon, located in Iraq that is plastered and measures 165 feet by 55 feet. It may very well have been Belshazzar’s banquet hall.
5:10. The queen was probably Belshazzar’s mother or grandmother, since his wives were at the feast (v.2).
5:25 Mene comes from a verb meaning “to number.” Tekel comes from a verb meaning “to weigh.” Pharsin comes from a verb meaning “to divide.”(The U before Pharsin is simply the word for and.)
5:29 He was called the third rule in the kingdom because Belshazzar and Nabonidus were already co-rulers. Critics of the Bible in past times suggested that Daniel erred greatly in portraying Belshazzar as the last king of Babylon, for ancient secular historians listed Nabonidus as Bablyon’s final king. However, the finding of several official tablets dealing with Belshazzar has shown that he was assuredly Nabonidus’s son, ruling as second ruler in the kingdom. Accordingly, when Daniel translated and explained the enigmatic words on the wall he could be made but “third ruler.”
5:30 Babylon was practically invincible, but, according to extrabiblical records, the Persians were able to divert the Euphrates River, which ran through the city, and thus walk in through the shallow river bed. The capture of the city is well attested in ancient records, from both the Babylonian and Persian annals. Though neither mentions the slaying of Belshazzar, he must have died in a place skirmish. In essence, the city was taken without a fight.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is my sincere prayer that you are being Blessed even as you read this e-mail.

Today we continue with the in depth study of the book of Daniel. 5.31 Darius the Median (or Mede), mentioned here and in the next chapter, has been variously identified. Since there is not extrabiblical evidence for his existence, critics have charged the book with a historical blunder here. Others, however, have sought to explain the reference in one of three ways: 1) The name may be another name for Cyrus. It is possible to translate 6:28 as “In the reign of Darius even [or, that is] in the reign of Cyrus. 2) Others suggest that Darius may be another name for Ugbaru (Hebrew spelling Gubaru), the governor of Gutium, who according to Babylonian records led the Persian army in the capture of Babylon. He was subsequently appointed as ruler of Babylon by Cyrus. 3) Another explanation is that although Ugbaru conquered Babylon, another man, named Gubaru, was given the rule over Babylon by Cyrus. Gubaru and Darius would be alternate names for the same person.l Whichever view is correct, there is certainly no need to charge Daniel with historical error. This Darius is not to be confused with the later Persian king Darius the Great (521-485 B.C.).
6:10,11 Daniel was past 80 yars of age at this time, yet he was still on his knees thanking God and asking for His Guidance and help.
6.22 His angel is perhaps the Angel of Yahweh, the preincarnate Christ.
7.1 In the first year of Belshazzar: Since the death of Belshazzar is reported at the end of chapter 5, the Book of Daniel is clearly not in chronological order. This is true of many of the Old Testament Prophets. The word dream indicates that Daniel was asleep; the word visions denotes the successive stages of what he saw in the dream.
7.2 The great sea is the Mediterranean (cf. Num 34:6, 7 Josh. 1:4; 9:1; Ezek 47:10).
7:3 Four great beasts represent four kings or kingdoms (v.17). The beasts seen here in Daniels dream are parallel to the sections of the image seen in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in chapter 2.
7.4 The lion represents Babylon and its most famous king, Nebuchadnezzar. The lion symbolizes the strength and power of the kingdom; the wings symbolize the swiftness of its victories; and the standing up as a man represents the humanitarian character of Nebuchadnezzar in his later years. The winged lion was the national symbol of Babylon in the days of Nebuchadnezzar.

Today we continue with the in depth study of the book of Daniel.
7:5 The bear is a picture of Medo-Persia, the empire that succeeded Babylon as the world power. On one side refers to Persia’s dominance over Media in the kingdom. The three ribs probably indicate three nations conquered by Medo-Persia in their ascendancy (Babylon, Lydia and Egypt).

7:6 The leopard depicts Greece. Though naturally a swift animal, this leopard had four wings in addition to its native agility. This speaks of the lightning speed with which Alexander’s kingdom after his death.
7:7,8 The fourth beast is not given a name and therefore must have had the character of an unknown hideous monster. It foreshadows the Roman Empire. The ten horns are 10 kings (v.24), and the little horn is another king who will arise after the 10 and be coexistent with them (v.24). This little horn will subdue three other kings (v.24) and will persecute the saints (v.25). The identification of the 10 horns and the little horn has generated much discussion. The 10 kingdoms represented by the 10 horns may be the nation that will grow out of the old Roman Empire, or they may be 10 future kings who will rule over some form of a revived Roman Empire. The little horn represents the Antichrist. The parallels between this forth beast and the beast in Revelation 13 are unavoidable. The description of the beast (i.e., the Antichrist) in that passage is clearly intended to depict the same individual as in Daniel’s portrayal (v.25). Thus, Daniel gives a foreview of the work of the Antichrist in the Tribulation period, and states that he will emerge from the remnants, or revival, of the Roman Empire.
7:9 The Ancient of days is God Himself. The whiteness of His garments and hair is a picture of His holiness.
7:13 The Son of man who came to the Ancient of days is the Son of God approaching God the Father. Evidently Jesus took the title Son of Man, which was His favorite way of referring to Himself in the Gospels, from this passage.
7:14 The commencement of Christ’s everlasting dominion will take place at His second coming (cf. Matt 24:30; 25:31; Rev 11:15).
7:23 The fourth beast, according to some critics, is not Rome but Greece. This interpretation, based on an attempt to eliminate any supernatural prediction here, must make the second and third beast Media and Persia. However, we see from passages like 6:8 that Daniel considered the Medes and Persians as one empire.
7:25 A time and times and the dividing of time (or “a time and times and half a time”) is an expression used in Daniel and in revelation to refer to three-and-a-half years, or 1,260 days, or 42 months (12:7; Rev. 11:2; 12:6, 14; 13:5)
8:1 With chapter 8 the text begins again in Hebrew. This is appropriate since the rest of the book is concerned with God’s program for Israel. The vision of chapter 8 came two years after that of chapter 7.
8:2 Shushan or Susa was a Persian royal city about two hundred miles east of Babylon where Daniel was at the time.
8:3 The ram with two horns represents the kingdom of Medo-Persia (v.20). Its two horns represent the two constituent parts of the kingdom, with the higher horn portraying the dominance of Persia over Media (as did the raised bear in 7:5).
8:5 The he goat is clearly the “king of Grecia,” with the notable horn representing the first king, Alexander (v. 21). The fact that the goat’s feet did not touch the ground symbolizes the swiftness of Alexander’s conquest, as did the wings on the leopard in the previous chapter (7:6)

8:7 In a series of battles over the period of 334-330 B.C., Alexander the Great decisively destroyed Persian power and became the master of the ancient Near Eastern world.
8:8 For notable ones (or horns) refers to the four generals who by 301 B.C. ruled Alexander’s empire (v. 22): Cassander ruled in Macedonia and most of Greece; Lysimachus ruled in the various parts of Thrace and parts of Asia Minor; Seleucus held most of Syria, Israel, and Mesopotamia; and Ptolemy was ruler in Egypt and parts of southern Syria. The ensuing years saw continuous power struggles in this area of the world from the successors of these generals.
8:9 A little horn came out of one of the four horns. Most agree that this little horn can only refer to Antiochus IV Epiphanes, a Seleucid ruler over Syria and Israel (175-163 B.C.), and for a short time over Egypt. In 167 B.C. Antichus outlawed the Jewish religion, burned Jerusalem, killed multitudes of Jews, and forbade circumcision and other Jewish observances. On December 16, 167 B.C., he offered a sow on the altar outsie the temple, the ultimate sarcrilege to a Jew. This began the period known as the Maccabean revolt. After three years of fighting, the Jews were able to restore temple worship in late 164 B.C. This rededication of the temple is still commemorated today in the eight-day Jewish holiday known as Hanukkah. Antiochus’s atrocities are accurately predicted in verses 10-14 and 23-25.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is my sincere prayer that you are being Blessed even as you read this e-mail.

Today we continue with the in depth study of the book of Daniel.

8:14 Two thousand and three hundred days is literally “2,300 evenings and mornings” which could very easily refer to the evening and morning sacrifices or 1,150 days. This figure would encompass the time when the temple was desolated from December 16, 167 B.C., until early 163 B.C. when all the Jewish sacrifices were restored. The latter event took place shortly after the recapture of the temple in late 164 B.C. Since the exact date of the reinstitution of sacrifices is unknown, this is certainly a reasonable interpretation.
8:25 He shall also stand up against the Prince of princes: many believe that the description here transcends that of Antiochus alone, and uses him as a type of the Antichrist who will oppose Christ during the Great Tribulation. Certainly the devious work of Antiochus and of the Antichrist is of the same heinous character.
9:2 The chronological notice in this verse is important. The event is the chapter occurred in 539 B.C., the year that Darius the Med assumed the rulership of Babylon. This momentous change of power provoked Daniel to search the Scriptures to determine the prophetic significance, if any, of the capture of Babylon by the Persians. By searching the prophet Jeremiah, Daniel realized that Jeremiah had prophesied that the captivity of the Jews would last 70 years (Jer. 25:11, 12). That period was almost over. Verses 4-19are, in essence, a prayer of confession and petition: confession of the nation’s sin and petition for God to fulfill His Word.

9:5 We have sinned: Four times in the chapter (vv 5,8,11,15) Daniel acknowledges the people’s sin, but always includes himself in their number. As with all great leaders he identifies himself with his people.
9:15-19. After praying his confession (vv-14) Daniel offers a petition. He prayed, negatively, for God’s wrath against His people to be assuaged (v.16) and, positively, for God’s grace, mercy, and forgiveness to be displayed in the people’s restoration to their land (vv. 17-19).
9:20-23. The answer of God to Daniel’s prayer came immediately through the angel Gabriel. Although Daniel’s prayer was primarily for God’s forgiveness and the restoration of the Jews to their land, his initial concern for God’s program for Israel (v.2) caused the Lord to reveal to him an outline of Israel’s future from that point on.
9:24 The prophecy of the seventy weeks is crucial for understanding biblical prophecy. Every statement in verses 24-27 is important and deserves special attention. The first interpretive problem is the meaning of the expression seventy weeks. The word weeks is a Hebrew word shabūa that can refer to any period of seven: seven days, seven months, seven years, and so on. Only the context indicates what period of seven is intended. There are four good reasons for believing that the “seven” intended here is a period of seven years: 1) Daniel has just been concerned about years (vv. 1,2). 2) It is impossible to fit the events of verses 24-27 into 490 days or weeks. 3) In the only other place where Daniel uses the word week, he qualifies it by adding the word days (10:2, 3). 4) Finally, the fact that verse 27 speaks of a convenant being broken at the half-way point of the seventieth seven agrees well with Daniel 7:25, 12:7, and Revelation 12:14, which speak of three-and-one-half years as one-half of a week. In sum, verse 24 declares that God had determined a period of 490 years to accomplish six key activities on behalf of Israel. Each divine act is marked out by an infinitive: to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, and so on. The first three are negative and the last three are positive.

Seventy Weeks Prophecy
9:24 These 70 prophetic weeks of Daniel’s vision describe God’s dealings with Israel, and are divided into two periods-the first 69 weeks, and the final (seventieth) week. During this period, the messianic work of God will be completed. According to Daniel’s prophecy, at the end of the sixty-ninth week, the Messiah will be cut off and the city of Jerusalem, including the temple, destroyed. This particular dispensation-which was among God’s secret things in the Old Testament but is a mystery revealed in the New Testament-falls within this gap. The 70 weeks began from the only biblical decree authorizing the rebuilding of Jerusalem and its wall (Neh. 2). It is dated in the Jewish month of Nissan 445 B.C. Using a 360-day year (12 30-day months; cf Gen. 7:11 with 8:4, 7:24 with 8:3; Rev 12:6, 7, 13, 14 with 13:4-7), Sir Robert Anderson calculated the end of the sixty-ninth week to fall on Palm Sunday, just before the Lord’s crucifixion. Illustration: Just as the events of the first 69 weeks have been literally fulfilled, so will be the events of the final week. Application: The Christian should realize that God is not yet through with Israel.(First Reference, Deut. 29; Primary Reference, Dan. 9:24; cf Luke 21:214.)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is my sincere prayer that you are being Blessed even as you read this e-mail.

Today we continue with the in depth study of the book of Daniel.

9:25 The commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem is said to be the point of commencement for the 490-year period. At least four decrees mentioned in Scripture have been set forth by various scholars as the fulfillment of this prophecy: the decree of Cyrus in 539 B.C.(2 Chr. 36:22, 23 Ezra 1:1-4); the decree of Darius I in 519/518 B.C.(Ezra 6:1, 6-12); the decree of Artaxerxes I to Ezra in 457 B.C.(Ezra 7:11-26); and the decree of Artaxerxes to Nehemiah in 444 B.C.(Neh. 2:1-8). Only the last decree, however, could have fulfilled this statement, since it was for the purpose of rebuilding the temple. Darius’s decree simply confirmed the intent of Cyrus’s and with the beautification of the temple. Darius’s decree simply confirmed the intent of Cyrus’s earlier decree. Artaxerxes’ decree to Ezra was concerned only with the return of additional exiles and with the beautification of the temple. Only Artaxerxes’ decree to Nehemiah refers directly to the restoration of the city. According to Nehemiah 2:1-8 this decree was given in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes in the month of Nisan, or March-April, 444 B.C. From this date to the Messiah will transpire a period of seven weeks, and three score and two weeks or 438 years.
9:26 After threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off: This phrase assumes that the first seven weeks have already transpired. And thus serves to summarize the passing of 69 weeks of years (438 years). There is a gap of time between the sixty-ninth and seventieth weeks. This is indicated by the statement that the Messiah will be cut off after the 69 weeks. Daniel used a calculation of time based upon the Book of Revelation where “a time, and times, and half a time” equals 1,260 days or 42 months (cf Dan. 7:24,25; 12:7; Rev. 11:3, 12:6; 13:5). In each case the calculation is based upon 30-day months.

The Messiah’s being cut off refers to the crucifixion of Christ, which probably occurred on April 3, A.D. 33. The sixty-ninth week ended just prior to His crucifixion, probably at His triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The time span form Artaxerxes decree to rebuild the city in March 444 B.C. until Christ’s crucifixion on April A.D. 33 covered 483 prophetical years (173,880 days). This calculation agrees perfectly with our own solar calendar. Thus, Daniel predicted that 483 prophetic years would lapse from Artaxerxes; decree until the death of the Messiah. The final week of years (Daniel’s seventieth week) is left unexplained and is best taken to be the equivalent to the seven years of tribulation that are yet determined for Israel.
The prince that shall come is the little horn of 7:8 who will emerge from the fourth, or Roman Empire. He is known elsewhere in Scripture as the Antichrist. However, the present verse states that the people of the prince, and not the prince himself, will destroy the city. This prophecy was fulfilled in A.D. 70 when Titus, the Roman general, destroyed the city of Jerusalem, killing thousands.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is my sincere prayer that you are being Blessed even as you read this e-mail.

Today we continue with the in depth study of the book of Daniel.
9:27 He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: the pronoun he here refers to its nearest antecedent,“the prince that shall come,” or Antichrist, in verse 26. The commencement of the future seventieth “week” then occurs when the Antichrist makes a covenant with the Jews for a seven-year period. It will evidently be a covenant intended to provide peace for Israel. However, in the middle of the period, the Antichrist will break this covenant and cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, that is, put an end to Jewish worship and set himself up as an object of worship (2 Thess. 2:4; Rev. 13:8). The statement that for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate refers to what Jesus called “the abomination of desolation:(Matt. 24:15). It foreshadows the act of sacrilege when the Antichrist ends organized religion and demands that he be worshiped. This final seventieth week is also known in Scripture as the Tribulation (Matt. 24:21). Revelation 4-19 is an exposition of what will take place during this period. The seventieth week will end when Christ returns to the earth to establish His kingdom (Rev. 19:11-21).
10:1 The final vision given to Daniel was in the third year of Cyrus, or 536 B.C. In the Book of Daniel it takes up chapters 10-12.
10:2 The entirety of chapter 10 is concerned with Daniel’s preparation to receive the vision. The emphasis of the chapter is the strengthening of Daniel and the satanic opposition that he and God’s angels encountered.
10:5 A certain man is probably not the preincarnate Christ, because this angel was hindered by “the prince…of Persia”(a demon), and because he needed the help of Michael the archangel (v. 13). Neither of these statements could have been said of Christ.
10:20 The prince of Grecia and the prince of Persia were demons who worked in those nations to oppose God’s people.

10:21 The scripture of truth, or “book of truth: probably refers to God’s knowledge or record of all truth, of which the Bible is a partial revelation.
11:2 This verse through verse 35 is an amazing summary of about two hundred years of the history of the wars between Egypt and Syria that took place during the fourth through the second centuries B.C. All of these prophecies, however, were written by Daniel in the sixth century B.C.! Three kings in Persia are Cambyses, the son of Cyrus (529-521 B.C.), Pseudo-Smerdis (521 B.C.), and Darius I (521-487 B.C.). The fourth is the most powerful of the four kings, Xerxes (485-464 B.C.), or as he is known in the Book of Esther, Ahasuerus.
11:3,4. The mighty king is Alexander the Great (336-323 B.C.) and the four winds are the four prominent generals who seized control of various parts of his empire.
11:5,6 The king of the south is the general who assumed control of Egypt, Ptolemy I (3213-283 B.C.); and the king of the north is another general, Seleucus I Nicator (312-280 B.C.), who had sovereignty over Syria and Mesopotamia. The conflict between these two generals and their successors, called the Ptolemies and Seleucids, is taken up in verses 5-20.
11:21 A vile person introduces Antiochus IV Epiphanes (175-163 B.C.), the last of the Seleucid rulers mentioned in the chapter. Because of his extreme persecution of the Jews, his devious reign is fully described in verses 21-35.
11:36 The events described in verses 2-35 have all been fulfilled. So detailed are these prophecies that critics have denied that Daniel could have written these words in the sixth century B.C. However, God is God. He is sovereign and fully capable of revealing these matters to His prophet. In verse 36 a new individual is introduced simply as the king. This cannot refer to Antiochus IV Epiphanes since the details of the passage could not refer to him. Rather, it must refer to the same individual already prophesied by Daniel, the little horn of 7:8 and “the prince” of 9:26; that is, the Antichrist. Indeed, the work of this individual described in 11:36-12:1 bears an inescapable agreement with the work of the Antichrist described in the New Testament (2 Thess. 2:4; Rev. 13; 17).
11:40-45. The king of the south, the Egyptian ruler, will attack Israel during the Great Tribulation; the king of the north is not clearly identified, but the description of his work prohibits identification with any Seleucid king. He may originate from Magog (Ezek 38:15) or simply be a king not identified anywhere in Scripture. But the point of the verse is clear: the king of the south and the king of the north will fight in the wars of the Antichrist. His wars are described in verses 40-45, including his occupation of Israel, the glorious land (v. 41), and his ultimate end (v. 45).

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is my sincere prayer that you are being Blessed even as you read this e-mail.

Today we continue with the in depth study of the book of Daniel.
12:1 During the Great Tribulation there will be an unprecedented attack to exterminate the Jews, but they will be delivered by Michael the archangel.
12:2, 3. After the Great Tribulation there will be two resurrections, one of the righteous to everlasting life and another of the unrighteous to everlasting contempt. A comparison with Revelation 20:4 shows that these two resurrections are separated by the one-thousand-year reign of Christ.
12:4 It was impossible to understand the significance of these prophecies in Daniel’s own day, but God indicated that at the time of the end many would seek to understand these predictions and be able to do so.
12:7 A time, times, and a half refers to the second half of the Great Tribulation, when these prophecies will be fulfilled. The first half of the Great Tribulation will be a time of relative peace for Israel because of their covenant with the prince (9:27). However, after the prince (Antichrist) breaks the covenant at the end of three-and-a-half-years, there will be a tremendous time of persecution and wars (11:40-45).
12:11 A thousand two hundred and ninety days differs from the second half of the Great Tribulation. Known elsewhere as only 1,260 days. The additional 30 days may occur before the “abomination of desolation” takes place in the middle of the Great Tribulation, perhaps as a prior, 30-day announcement of the Antichrist’s intention. On the other hand, the 30 days could be added to the end of the Great Tribulation to allow time of the judgment of Israel and the nations.
12:12 The thousand three hundred and five and thirty days (1,335 days) contains an additional 45 days beyond the figure of verse 11. This additional period probably occurs between the Great Tribulation and the commencement of the Millennium. The verse uses the word blessed to apply to those who wait for these days to be terminated, and thus would easily speak of the blessedness of the Millennium.
12:13 For thou shalt rest: Daniel would not live to see the fulfillment of his own prophecies, but is here promised that he would be resurrected to receive his reward (thou shalt …stand in thy lot). All who trust in Daniel’s God will likewise be blessed.

Discovered Being Ministry, Incorporated says a lot .
Bishop William B. Caractor are you defending ones like brther Copeland and brother Gothard????
Or do you just see a chance to promote your self???
Dear Sir:

I am not defending anyone, my obligation and commitment is to God Almighty, but the Word of God says "Let the tears and the wheat grow together, and at the harvest time, I (God) will do the separating."

Also, my friend, God said "Judge ye not, lest ye be judged, and what you measure out will be measured unto you.

I did not call Reverend Dr. Copeland and I will not engage in a conversation concerning him. I am working out my soul salvation and I hope you are doing the same.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is my sincere prayer that you are being Blessed even as you read this e-mail.

Today we begin with the in depth study of the Epistle of Paul to the Ephesians.
Ephesians addressed to a group of believers who are rich beyond measure in Jesus Christ, yet living as beggars, and only because they are ignorant of their wealth. Paul begins by describing in chapters 1-3 the contents of the Christian’s heavenly “bank account”: adoption, acceptance, redemption, forgiveness, wisdom, inheritance, the seal of the Holy Spirit, life, grace, citizenship-in short, every spiritual blessing. In chapters 4-6 the Christian learns a spiritual walk rooted in his spiritual wealth.“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus (1-3) unto good works…That we should walk in them (4-6)”(2:10).

The traditional title of this epistle is Pros Ephesious.“To the Ephesians.” Many ancient manuscripts, however, omit en Epheso,“at Ephesus,” in 1:1. This has led a number of scholars to challenge the traditional view that this message that it was a circular letter sent by Paul to the churches of Asia. It is argued that Ephesians is really a Christian treatise designed for general use: it involves no controversy and deals with no specific problems in any particular church. Some scholars accept an ancient tradition that Ephesians is Paul’s letter to the Laodiceans (Col.4:16), but there is no way to be sure. If Ephesians began as a circular letter, it eventually became associated with Ephesus, the foremost of the Asian churches. Another plausible option is that this epistle was directly addressed to the Ephesians, but written in such a way as to make it helpful for all the churches in Asia.
