1. Exegetical Questions and Answers (at least two) John Piper SQ a. Do you think there is an implied admonition for the Ephesians (and us) in verses 20 and 21? What would it be? a. What light might John 17:26 shed on the reality prayed for in Ephesians 3:19b- to be filled to all the fullness of God? I think John 17:26 helps one understand that the fullness of God refers to Jesus. This means that Paul prays that the Ephesians be filled with Christ. Besides, John 17:26 and Ephesians 3:19b highlight the reality of the deity of Jesus. b. Do you think there is an implied admonition for the Ephesians (and us) in verses 20 and 21? What would it be? I think there is a timeless admonition in these two verses. According to me, the implied admonition which Paul models is that believers in every generation must always give God glory for what he has done. 2. Insights gained from Hoehner or other secondary sources. I realize that Paul uses "we", "us", and "you" in many instances in this epistle. Verse 20 provides a handy example. In this verse Paul talks about the power at work within us. Wallace cites this as an example of what he names "the inclusive we". He says " The inclusive we is the use of the first person plural to include both author(s) and audience Daniel B. Wallace, Greek Grammar beyond the Basics: An Exegetical Syntax of the New Testament (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1996), 397. This helps me see how much every believer stands in need of God's power. 3. Brief doxological response or personal application I need God's power to know the larger-than-knowledge love of Christ. 4. Time invested in preparing for this class period I spent above 3 hours 30 minutes. 5.
