Ephesians 1:1-2 – Peter O’Brien comments on the overwhelming centrality of Jesus in Ephesians: “Christ is the one in whom God chooses to sum up the cosmos, the one in whom he restores harmony to the universe. He is the focal point – not simply the means, the instrument, or the functionary through whom all this occurs.”
“The mystery which God has graciously made known refers to the summing up and bringing together of the fragmented and alienated elements of the universe in Christ as the focal point. All things are to be summed up in God’s anointed one and presented as a coherent totality in him.”
