The Theology of Unity (Part 2)

November 7, 2021 Speaker: Jim Harris Series: Ephesians

Scripture: Ephesians 4:5–4:6

Today we conclude the doctrinal statement of unity of the Spirit which we are commanded to be diligent to preserve. This is a highly stylish passage. The sense of it goes like this.

Ephesians 4:3b–6: . . . being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace: [Specifically] one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.

One occurs 7 times in verses 4-6
There are 3 triads in these verses
Verse 4 says one, one, one
Verse 5 repeats one, one, one
Verse 6 has a different triad: over all, through all, and in all

  1. One Body
  2. One Spirit
  3. One Hope
  4. One Lord
  5. One Faith
  6. One Baptism
  7. One God
