Ephesians (Program #59) – Conclusion

Many great apostles contributed to the New Testament: John, James, Peter and Matthew as well as others. But the bulk of the New testament came through the apostle Paul.

And he asked for their prayers and petitions concerning him.  A very touching fellowship.

This is good and acceptable in the sight of our Savior God,
