The author’s aim is the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry (Ep.4:12). To this the focus of his writing is to challenge Christ-followers to move on from the elementary principles of faith to the deeper and more transformative truths of divine revelation (Heb.6:1). For this he believes is the essence of eternal life (Jn.17:3).
