The Ephesians society was a centrally powered society. And the power was given to men. Years ago when I was in Africa, my host told me “it is good to be a man in Africa”. It was good to be a man in Ephesus too. One commentator wrote, “Husbands were the undisputed masters of their wives”. (Ephesians, Life Change Series, Navigators, 1985)
