Sanctifying Song

To a Christian community [in Ephesus] surrounded by ignorance and immorality; to a people who themselves were prone to the blindness and indulgence of their former way of life; at the conclusion of a passage warning against irrationality and sins of the flesh [Ephesians 4:17–5:18] —Paul urges singing and music making [5:18-20].

—Stephen R. Guthrie, “Singing, in the Body and in the Spirit,” Journal of the Evangelical Society 46/4 (December 2003), 638
