Bible Study of Ephesians – Free Printable Study Guide

What does it mean that we have been made one with Christ? In this Ephesians Bible Study, you will explore the beautiful meaning of our unity with Jesus.

Paul knew that the believers in Ephesus would be coming against some intense spiritual battle. His letter encourages them to remember and walk in the new identity they had been given in Christ. 

Paul’s message to the Ephesians holds as much weight for us today as it did for these believers back then. The battle is still raging! Understanding who we are in Christ enables us to stand firm against our spiritual enemy.
