The Second Epistle of Ignatius to the Ephesians 1146

Ignatius, who is [also called] Theophorus, to the Church which is blessed in the greatness of God the Father, and perfected; to her who was selected 1147 from eternity, that she might be at all times for glory, which abideth, and is unchangeable, and is perfected and chosen in the purpose of truth by the will of the Father of Jesus Christ our God; to her who is worthy of happiness; to her who is at Ephesus, in Jesus Christ, in joy which is unblameable: [wishes] abundance of happiness.



Another inscription is, “Epistle the Second, which is to the Ephesians.”


Literally, “separated.”

Next: Chapter I.
