Although it is admitted that St. Paul was the author of this Epistle, some doubts have arisen whether it was first directed to the Ephesians. Marcion, quoted by Tertullian, calls it the "Epistle to the Laodiceans." Paley, however, has observed" that the external evidenco preponderates, with manifest excess, on the side of the received reading."

St. Paul bad been very successful in his ministry at Epbesus, and be wroto this Epistle during his imprisonment at Rome; there is atriking resemblance between this and the Epistle to tbe Colossians, from which it is justly concluded they were both written about the mamo time.
