This is not a quiz with exact or precise answers. But remember, Paul must have expected his brothers and sisters in Ephesus, many of them young in the truth and some probably slaves, to have been able to answer these questions quite easily!

  1. God has “blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places” (v.3). Which in particular have YOU been blessed with? In what way can the “place” YOU have or occupy be described as “heavenly”?
  2. God has “chosen us in him [Christ] before the foundation of the world” (v.4). Since none of us existed then, what does Paul mean?
  3. Paul states that we “should be holy and without blame” (v.4). How can this be achieved? [Look for the answer in the next two verses].
  4. You have “redemption through his {Jesus’} blood” (v.7). What is that “redemption”? [The answer is in the same verse]. From what specifically have YOU been “redeemed”?
  5. What is the “mystery of His [God’s] will”? (v.9). Why is it a “mystery”?
  6. What does the “dispensation of the fullness of times” (v.10) mean?
  7. What “things” in heaven and earth are “gathered together in one in Christ” (v.10)?
  8. How can it be said that we have obtained our inheritance already (v.11)? [You don’t have to look far for the answer: it’s in the same verse].
