Free sample

In this new volume, renowned scholar Jerome Murphy-O'Connor does for Ephesus what he did for Corinth in his award-winning St. Paul's Corinth. He combs the works of twenty-six ancient authors for information about ancient Ephesus, from its beginnings to the end of the biblical era. Readers can now picture for themselves this second of the two major centers of Paul's missionary work, with its houses, shops, and monuments, and above al the world-renowned temple of Artemis. After presenting the textual and archaeological evidence, Murphy-O'Connor leads the reader on a walk through St. Paul's Ephesus and describes the history of Paul's years in the city. Although Ephesus has been a ruin for many hundreds of years, readers of this book will find themselves transported back to the days of its flourishing.

Jerome Murphy-O'Connor, OP, has been a professor of New Testament at the Ecole Biblique of Jerusalem since 1967. He has lectured throughout the world and is the author of numerous books, including the popular Oxford Press archaeological guidebook The Holy Land; and Paul the Letter-Writer, St. Paul's Corinth, and Jesus and Paul: Parallel Lives, all published by Liturgical Press.

This bestselling ebook provides a historically accurate background of a Roman Centurion's armor then draws vital correlations to the spiritual armor God gives his children: the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, Feet Prepared with the Gospel of Peace, The Shield of Faith, The Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit. Glossy, full-color ebook will help you to ""stand firm in the faith.""

Learn to put on the full armor of God when facing temptations and struggles. The key to this best-selling Christian ebook is the insights brought by Paul's knowledge of a Centurion's armor. Having a correct picture in mind is important to accurately teaching and understanding this portion of Scripture. While many other illustrations of The Armor of God show armor from the Middle Ages, or other time periods, the Rose illustration presents historically accurate Roman armor. In a side-by-side fold-out format, The Armor of God ebook describes each piece of armor, its historical background, and its application to our spiritual battles today.

The Apostle Paul knew how important it was for believers to understand the provision of spiritual armor that God made for them. Paul's teaching to the Church at Ephesus was born out of firsthand knowledge of Roman Centurions' armor. He saw them up close on many occasions.

The Armor of God ebook provides the following information:

•A detailed description of the armor of God
•Historical background on how the armor was put on and its purpose
•The application of the armor to our lives today, such as how the "Belt of Truth" prepares believers to be truthful
•Greek or Latin terms
•The passage of Ephesians 6:10-18 verse-by-verse alongside an illustration of a Roman Centurion in full armor

For example: One of the Devil's schemes is LIES. God's plan/armor is Truth. Proverbs 14:25 would be a good reminder of God's plan
