This publication is a transcript of the audio recordings of Dr. Victor Paul Wierwille’s 1981-82 Way Corps teachings on the Book of Ephesians.
This is an edited transcript. One of the challenges of a transcript such as this one is that the original material was, of course, spoken rather than written. By its very nature the spoken is more informal and colloquial than something designed from the beginning to be edited for printed publication. As an edited transcript, grammatical corrections and possibly minor changes commonly applied when converting the spoken word to the written one for the sake of readability has been completed. Just like the verbatim transcript, the goal is to protect the integrity of the original teaching and communicate the heart of the teacher.
In Living Victoriously The Word Worldwide Dr. Wierwille shared his heart of teaching Ephesians during 1981-82: The word katangellō. and “evangelism” brings to mind our course on Ephesians for The Way Corps, in which we taught everything that we possibly could work in the Book of Ephesians. (I taught it twice. The first year, I took the Corps as far as I thought they could go. The next year, there were very few “holds barred” but I thought they could handle it therefore the Research Department and I worked so that I taught them everything I could possibly work in the book of Ephesians—that is this word katangellō.) That is an illustration of this wonderful word katangellō meaning to teach thoroughly, taking people into the inner depths of God’s Word to give them that fantastic foundation and understanding.
