Ephesians 3:21, Did Paul Write the Book of Ephesians?

To Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

//That’s how this book of the Bible ends: with praise to God and an exhortation for the church to give glory to God through the ages…”all generations, forever and ever.”

Huh? What happened to Paul’s admonition that people not bother to get married, or make any major changes in their life, because the present world was about to end? (1 Corinthians 7:25-31). Where is the Paul who wrote that many of the people around him would live to see the return of Christ? (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17).

Has Paul changed his mind? It’s possible, but this is just one of many passages that cause critical scholars to doubt that Paul was the author of the book of Ephesians. The seven epistles universally considered authentic to Paul are these:


1 Corinthians

2 Corinthians




1 Thessalonians
