  1. In ephesians unlike Romans the jew is no longer first. We all are equal in calling. National. Repentance of Israel also is no longer on view. Its the dispensation of the mystery, signs and wonders no longer typical.

  2. Yet again, very weak teaching.
    We are blessed with ALL spiritual blessings in the heavenlies. Not a mention.
    This would refute all who seek a second blessing, that's if it was taught.
    We are saved by grace through faith, not of ourselves, not works, it is a gift of God. Not a mention.
    This would refute those who think they either need to add their works to get saved, and those who think their obedience (works) keep them saved, but again it is not taught.
    Two foundational truths and just passed over.
    Nice graphics, poor teaching.

  3. I have an incurable disease açcording to several doctor's called Sarcoidosis in many cases it shows signs goes away and never comes back but in rare cases like mine it has severally scarred my lungs, given me 3rd stage kidney disease, enlarged my liver, spleen, and lymph nodes, they found it in my bones marrow which caused osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis and my bones break very easily , I keep telling them God has the final say , I try to be content in all circumstances and do what is pleasing in God's sight, I am on oxygen 24 7 and I am wondering what can I do to share the gospel, I make effort to do that when I can go out but I am in the home majority of the time, do you have any suggestions, also my son is an unbeliever and I try to share who Jesus is what He's done and how much He loves Him but I am having a hard time could you please pray for us and that we could meet other people who have the passion I do to have a strong relationship with Jesus Christ, the churches just don't seem to want to offend anyone and leave things out and I want to find somewhere where the Bible is the final authority and want to help people grow in Christ, I wish I wasn't limited because of this disease but I had a very dysfunctional child on into my adult life both parents were drug addicts there was alot of sexual abuse and the story gets worse but I thought maybe my testimony maybe able to help someone after I get the help I need I have just started intake for therapy and it took so long because at 15 I was sent to live with a very wealthy man who was 45 and the head of an organized crime family I didn't get out until my 20s but was addicted to drugs because they had been given to me from age 11 on up each year increasing, I have been clean for 4 year's now and have witnessed alot of deaths , I want what time I have left to be used to Glorify God and help other people but don't know where to begin because my disease can have good days but many bad one's between the pain and sickness. Thanks for listening God bless you all ❣️ and feel free to leave a comment if you have any suggestions, like I said my first therapy session was today. I have a 19 year old son who struggles with suicidal thoughts and deep depression. Please keep this confidential until I know what next step to take my son is 19 so they said he would have to agree to get help. I pray for anyone who is going through anything painful and don't know how or who to talk to. One thing I learned is Jesus never will leave or forsake us no matter what, because if it wasn't for Him this comment or myself more than likely wouldn't even be here.

  4. Hello everybody please pray for my dear friends Sabrina, Rocio, and Luis. Pray that they turn to Christ and that they’ re bless and saved for the second coming and heaven. Thank you I would really appreciate it. God blessed.

  5. Cool graphics. Poor teaching. Totally missed Chapter 3. Read Paul's words in vss 1-9 and get the purpose of the body of Christ (this new church established by Christ through the Apostle Paul) and the mystery which was hid in God.

  6. How Wonderful our GOd is
    HE is full of Wisdom that HE planned MANs destiny and purpose even they came from Hard Past.. Thank GOD for Paul that HE did his best to follow GOD and be HIS vessel to spread His HOLY words and testify that JESUS is real and not myth..
    And be one of 12 disciple replacement of JUDAS who consumed by evil and became Beast against GOD.

  7. can i encourage our family of believers; If someone from another faith or someone who doesnt believe God comments on here maybe wants to know more. Lets be careful not to overload them with too many comments or resources to read, i know, i know we immediately see it as a chance to preach Gods word and encourage them to seek God. But it might be overwhelming for them when there is 20 of us commenting. Thank you bible project for this, Praising God for your willing hearts in serving the Lord through these short and very informative videos. God bless

  8. Thanks, that summary really helped me to see how the passages work all together to a beautiful picture!
    Maybe it could focus a bit more on the cross (though it is briefly mentioned in the beginning, explaining forgiveness and grace) – since it the very centre of the gospel. Paul also mentions it in Eph. 1:7, 2:13ff.,5:1f., 5:25f. and shows how both the cross and resurrection of Jesus change everything in our lifes. 🙂
    Thanks for this good overview, which also follows the natural structure of the letter itself really well, as far as I can see! 🙂

  9. Where can I purchase the doodles used in these incredible videos!? I have searched the web far and wide in the UK.. Please , if anyone's has any idea where I can get these please let me know! Blessings
