Ephesians 4 and the Five-Fold Gifts

In the Book of Ephesians, St. Paul writes that ministers are given to us “to prepare God’s people for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” We’ll look more at the passage with Dr. Peter Williamson.

Dr Peter Williamson holds the Adam Cardinal Maida Chair of Sacred Scripture at Sacred Heart Major Seminary and has spent more than 35 years in evangelization and pastoral ministry. He’s the author of the Ephesians volume of the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture and General Editor of the series with Dr Mary Healy and the co-editor with Ralph Martin of John Paul II and the New Evangelization
