-Mark Denver, pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.
Dr. MacArthur’s love for the Scripture and his many years of diligent study have resulted in a resource that is a great gift to the Body of Christ. I have found this tool to be a great help as I study the Word and teach it to women. I often refer to this set of commentaries to enhance my understanding of the text and to shed light on difficult passages and questions.
-Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author, Revive our Hearts radio teacher
John MacArthur has provided a compelling example of pastoral ministry based on the Word of God. Now the fruit of that ministry is available to us all: careful attention to the text of Scripture and faithful theological exposition, all in the service of the church of Jesus Christ. Both pastor and layperson will benefit for years to come from this unique commentary series.
-C.J. Mahaney, president of Sovereign Grace Ministries
The MacArthur New Testament Commentary is nothing less than a library of faithful exegesis and exposition. This project is unparalleled in our times, and John MacArthur has produced a masterful commentary series that demands attention and deserves a place in every preacher’s library.
-R. Albert Mohler, Jr., PhD, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY
From the Inside Flap
Ephesians has rightly been titled the believer's bank and the treasure house of the Bible. This beautiful letter tells Christians of their great riches, inheritance, and fullness in Jesus Christ and in His church. It unfolds for them the infinite blessings they possess in Christ and how they can claim and enjoy those possessions.
Join John MacArthur as he explains each verse in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.
The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series comes from the experience, wisdom, and insight of one of the most trusted ministry leaders and Bible scholars of our day. Each volume was written to be as comprehensive and accurate as possible, dealing thoroughly with every key phrase and word in the Scripture without being unnecessarily technical. This commentary will help to give a better, fuller, richer understanding of God's Word, while challenging the reader to a vibrant personal spiritual walk.

Dr. Mac has a true gift for expository teaching. He can plumb the depths of scripture "comparing spiritual things with spiritual" without being pedantic. I am using this book in my own personal devotional time, and I am using some of his thoughts on election and predestination in a teaching series at our church.
Dr. MacArthur does a masterful job at making clear the believer's position in Christ. His approach is easily accessible to clergy and layman alike. He brings out strong doctrine, without dogmatism, or denominational slant.
Eventually, I hope to own most if not all of Dr. MacArthur's commentaries as I feel that they are immensely edifying.
Dr. John MacArthur has been pastor of Grace Community Church in Los Angeles since 1969. During that time, he has preached verse-by-verse through the entire New Testament. The commentary chapter divisions are (essentially) derived from those individual sermons.
The essence of John MacArthur's credibility is his unswerving devotion to the Divine inspiration (authorship), absolute inerrancy, and complete authority of the Bible. Since the Bible is the true and infallible written revelation of God to mankind, Dr. MacArthur has said: "The only logical response to inerrant Scripture is to preach it expositionally. By that, I mean preaching in such a way that the meaning of the Bible passage is presented entirely and exactly as it was intended by God." This commitment results in content that is consistently and faithfully evangelical, because, as he explains: "Over the years of teaching the word of God without a lot of presuppositions, I tend to conclude whatever I believe the exegetical process yields."
But, although MacArthur has successfully disentangled himself from the straightjacket of agenda-driven or tradition-mandated, outcome-based theology--paying no tribute to conformity with any human opinion--he is by no means a doctrinal libertine. He is manifestly committed to declaring "the whole purpose of God" (Acts 20:27), and yet equally determined "not to exceed what is written" (2 Corinthians 4:6).Read more ›
Dr. MacArthur writes with that one purpose in mind. While the book is indeed a commentary on Ephesians, Dr. MacArthur has written for the goal of helping every believer know their status in the kingdom of God. You will find that you will want to lay down this commentary and shout praise to our King for His great salvation in Jesus Christ. This book is much more than a doctrinal or technical commentary (it has elements of both) but it also is a book of worship as you see the joys we have in Jesus (Ephesians 1:7; 2:1-10)
