Arc Commentary :: This passage breaks nicely into two larger sections: vv.21-22 and vv.23-24. The first section is naturally tied to Paul's conclusion in 6:10-20 where he ends his exhortation to stand firm with a request for prayers on his behalf. By brining up his need he then transitions into this section where he explains that Tychicus will give them more details because Paul sent Tychicus for this very purpose! The final unit is neatly connected to the opening greeting by the words "grace" and "peace". Passage Commentary :: Unit 1 - Paul seems intent on two things here, that the Ephesians know what Paul's been doing on these missionary endeavors and how Paul's been doing on these missionary endeavors. All believers love to hear good report of the Kingdom exploits God is bringing about in the world beyond their immediate influence. Testimonies of this nature serve to encourage the saints in their ministry labors and bring about praise to God for these works He is doing. But secondly, Paul wants them to know how he's doing because of their close relationship. Missionary prayer letters are not only about the work being done but about the workers condition. All believers need to give heed to these types of reports as well, especially when there is a close relationship. This "battle against spiritual forces" takes a toll on all who are engaged, especially when one enters into spiritual strongholds of the enemy. So, while all face this battle, Paul is right to request special prayer for himself and his team as they enter these strongholds to raise the banner of Christ! Unit 2 - Paul again blesses the believers with the grace and peace flowing from the joyous union of Father and Son. The objects of this blessing are very interesting to consider: the brothers, those who love Jesus. In these phrases he seems to refer to both the church local and the Church global. The "brothers" might be understood as the ἐκκλήσια who gather in that city. The "lovers of Jesus" might be understood as the ἐκκλήσια who gather under the headship of Christ. The clue to this broadening of his blessing might be discerned in the fact that he attaches πάντων to τῶν ἀγαπώντων. This is also in keeping with the ecclesiological nature of this letter as Paul describes both aspects of God's people. And this people will love God into the realms of eternal life! Soli Deo Gloria!
