Ephesians Contains Six Chapters and not Four - JC Ryle

I would say it with all reverence, but say it I must - I sometimes fear if Christ were on earth now, there are not a few who would think His preaching legal; and if Paul were writing his Epistles, there are those who would think he had better not write the latter part of most of them as he did.


But let us remember that the Lord Jesus did speak the Sermon on the Mount, and that the Epistle to the Ephesians, contains six chapters and not four. I grieve to feel obliged to speak in this way, but I am sure there is a cause.
