The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1After the salutation,
3and thanksgiving for the Ephesians,
4he treats of our election,
6and adoption by grace;
11which is the true and proper fountain of man's salvation.
13And because the height of this mystery cannot be easily attained unto,
16he prays that they may come to the full knowledge and possession thereof in Christ.
