Tradition holds that the Epistle to the Ephesians was written by Paul from Rome, while in prison, but Burton L. Mack (Who Wrote the New Testament) says that Paul's Letter to the Ephesians is not authentic. He says there is not a suggestion of the personal Paul in it - the style and vocabulary are both different, and even the rhetoric is entirely different. Many passages in Ephesians even seem to be directly copied from Colossians, which is also widely acknowledged to be pseudonomous. Paul could hardly have written this epistle, which belongs to late in the first century CE.
