Saint Paul addresses issues at the church of Ephesus that are still important for today. 

These topics include:

Law and grace


The role of men

and women in the

church


Christian Maturity

and church

leadership


The Gospel and

It’s ministry


The church and

its social

responsibility


Contemporary false

teachers and the

love of money


Notice that the two halves of the chiasm are divided into “instructions” and then “injunctions.”  This is because Paul uses the imperative mood 38 times in the second half of the letter (compared to 4x in the first half).
