New Defender's Study Bible Notes

3:1 prisoner. Paul evidently wrote this epistle while he was imprisoned in Rome “for the hope of Israel” (Acts 28:20); he had been a prisoner ever since he was taken captive in Jerusalem (Acts 21:33) at the request of the Jewish leaders. For at least two years, however, he was given a certain amount of freedom (Acts 28:30), and it was probably during this time that he wrote this letter to the Ephesians.
