oa Conspectus : The Journal of the South African Theological Seminary - Paul's apocalyptic interpretation of reality : a case study analysis of Ephesians 1 : 15 - 23

Volume 19, Issue 03
  • ISSN : 1996-8167



This journal article builds on the work of an earlier essay (Lioy 2014a) to undertake a case study analysis of one representative passage in Paul's writings, through the prism of its apocalyptic backdrop. The major claim is that the apostle's eschatological worldview exercised a controlling influence on his writings, both directly and indirectly. The corresponding goal is to validate the preceding assertion by exploring the apostle's end-time interpretation of reality in Ephesians 1:15-23.
