Oct 10, Aaron rated it really liked it Shelves: I’m glad I hoeehner this one up. I almost didn’t sue to his heavy DTS influence but it was well worth it. The Dispensational doctrines were easily overlooked and other than the disagreements in that area I found much to agree with.
Feb 04, Derrick Jeter rated it it was amazing. An academic volume written by an academic, but writing in ephrsians non-academic manner. He was my professor ephesiians Dallas Theological Seminary. A good and godly man. And a serious student of the New Testament.
Mar 22, Bill Vaughan rated it it was amazing. I consider this the harodl of Ephesians exegetical commentaries. Same as an exegetical digest. Feb 16, Dave Courtney rated it really liked it. Hoehner’s work on the letter to harolc Ephesians is impressive in scope. It is also worth the price for the the lengthy list of recommended reading that accompanies the book’s introduction. The question of scope lends itself to the question of depth. Hoehner applies a sort of old school approach for lack of a better description to this commentary, even has he speaks to the issues we find in modern scholarship.
It is a slow, prodding approach verse by verse that is littered with side trips in sma Hoehner’s work hoeher the letter to the Ephesians is impressive in scope. It is a slow, prodding approach verse by verse hpehner is littered with side trips in small print where he feels it is warranted. Having just finished a commentary on harolx letter of James different authora part of my own personal journey was recognizing some of the overlap from James to Paul.
Similar to James, Hoehner makes a compelling argument for an earlier composition based on the growing recognition of a strong Semitic background. The themes are also compelling, finding overlap in the discussion of “riches” and “justification” and “power”. In the grander picture I had always pictured James as a sort of rough around the edges introduction in to Paul’s own thought process.
In Ephesians we get epesians picture of these shared themes really taking root. There hadold no question that Paul is concerned with unity of the early Church. Through the first three chapters we see his passionate insistence on growing our view of the world, our ephesiwns of God’s work in the world. We see his commitment to pulling together Jew and Gentile under the unifying work and person of Jesus. In fact, we find this movement towards a unifying body the very essence of the “mystery” that follows Paul’s letters.
This mystery is the truth of God’s grace that says we can across ethnic, cultural and social systems belong as adopted sons and daughters in to the family of God not by our own merit, but through the person and work of Jesus. For Paul we are given harlod power and strength and knowledge that we need to understand this mystery, hoehber mystery that the harlld of Christ knows no boundaries. I was fascinated by the theme of family in the book of Ephesians, something Hoehner helps to bring to light.
Understanding the intentional use of the word for “Father” in the NT by Paulwe see this sentiment as one that is near and dear to his own heart. There is a powerful moment in chapter 3: This was particularly meaningful for me, and the first time that I had really read this verse, as the father of an adopted child. Paul sees the “family” in a variety of forms, all of which find their meaning in being “rooted and grounded in love the work and person of Christ “.
It is interesting that the latter chapters, which deal with the household structure as the picture of HOW to live as a hlehner simply serve this theme of family, providing perhaps a new lens through which to read the chapters on submission and slavery.
Here Hoehner gives some good feedback although I would have pushed some of his thoughts a bit further, epehsians regarding the extent to which Paul is borrowing the household structure from the Ohehner contextand allows us to see how these verses in context to Paul’s bigger picture of the mystery of God. In the end, this focus on the relationships within the family provide a picture of God’s unifying work across boundaries and across ohehner, structures and culture.
This is a mystery that is made known through humility, not power, servanthood and grace and not judgment and exclusion. Lastly, I found myself intrigued by the final chapter on the armour of God. This is the first of the recommended reading that I plan to pick up along with his material on adoption and the household structure in the ancient world.
Paul has a distinct connection with the mystics. He speaks of the spiritual powers, and the unseen world quite often, and it is easy to arrive at the final chapter and paint him as more practical than romantic. He has a close connection to the spiritual elements that undergird Christian theology, and I am intrigued to discover more about these elements of his teaching.
Hoehner gives us close to pages, which would appear to be overkill given the size of the letter itself. And in truth, some of hoeher he does offer here does feel a bit over the top. And as with most commentaries, there is always a bit of theological baggage that the author carries with them in to the conversation. With Hoehner you begin to figure out his rhythm and patter early on he typically pairs views in groups of three or more, with the one he gives his strongest support to being the last one to hohner referenced.
He does present a somewhat biased Calvinist slant. But for the most part he gives us a good overview of the general issues in play over the particular passage. The only thing I might feel was lacking were some chances to catch our breathe and to become re-aquainted with the larger picture of the book itself.
Dec 21, Cole Feix rated it it was amazing. The best of the technical commentaries on Ephesians. This is an absolute tour de force. Ephesins 11, Mike E. This is the most massive hoehneer in existence?! When you consider the pehesians of Ephesians and realize this thing pushes pages–it’s almost ridiculous. This commentary is for those who are comfortable in the Greek text and familiar with Greek grammar. The commentary goes phrase by phrase as Hoehner identifies breaks in the flow.
He uses his almost insane precision and logic on every page.
There are no grey help sections, shortcuts, summaries. This is solid old-scho This is the most massive commentary–perhaps in existence?! This is solid old-school exegesis. Although massive, this commentary is much more readable than many other commentaries in its class, e.

Hoehner does not go out of his way to use technical and obtuse language. If you are going to preach Ephesians you need to clear some space on your shelf.
This concept was revolutionary for Jews and Gentiles alike. The only way that this information can be obtained is through hqrold gospel, the good news concerning the effect of Christ’s death on all human beings.
Howhner only reason that I give it 4 stars is that a more perfect commentary would not be so long! Jun 15, Eric rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Extremely thorough and appropriately technical, Hoehner gives a broad canvasing of Ephesians commentaries.
While I personally am not well enough versed in Biblical scholarship to form novel opinions on his interpretations from a grammatical standpoint, there were a few instances where he, Lincoln and O’Brien my other commentaries different when I came down against Hoehner’s view.
All told, however, he is a trustworthy source. He defended Pauline authorship admirably and presented an orthodox r Extremely thorough and appropriately technical, Hoehner gives a broad canvasing of Ephesians commentaries.
He defended Pauline authorship admirably and presented an orthodox reading while giving proper consideration to the contemporary context.
