A blueprint for the future, Ephesians 1:9-10

The aim of this article is to give an explanation of the phrase “anakephalaisasthai ta panta” in Ephesians 1:10. To understand this phrase correctly it is necessary to examine every word of this phrase in order to come to a clearer understanding of the whole phrase. The place of this particular phrase within the thought process of the whole epistle, as well as in the immediate context, will be explored to come to a correct perception of the object under research. Finally an answer will be given to the question whether the teaching of Paul is as vital today as it was in Paul’s own day.
