Ephesians 1:8-9 keywords constitute wry commentary on the post-Commodus grab for power. By Roman generals, and by Christians. Lead-in to the Crisis of the Third Century. This video covers the post-Commodus period until the murder of Heliogabalus (aka Elagabalus). The guy's name means Sun-Priest (connotation of being the one on earth, representing Sol Invictus). Yeah, and that begins the time when Ireneaus and Tertullian and their cohorts grab for power, by inventing 'Mother Church'. To butcher rival Christians.
Proof of that is extensively linked to independent scholarly sources of (ahem) 'church father' writings, as well as Roman history, in video's doc: brainout.net/Ephesians1REPARSED.doc or htm, but you need BibleWorks fonts (freely downloadable at bibleworks.com/fonts.html ).
