Ephesians' Occasion
"Besides Paul's captivity as a prisoner and Tychicus's ministry as an envoy, the letter offers no concrete data regarding either the author or the audience. As a result, Ephesians is frequently regarded as the least occasional and the most general of the Pauline letters."
Longenecker & Still
"Circular Letter"
"In the five or so years after Paul left Ephesus, Ephesian believers took the Message to neighboring cities. New converts in these cities struggled with similar questions about both belief and behavior. Most of them were non-Jews.... The knew Paul only by rumor, but when he sent an open letter to Ephesus, they eagerly copied and passed it from city to city in the region."

Ethos is more about the atmosphere that operates within a group, informing the character of its corporate life, from which ethical decisions are made. In a nutshell, the ethos of a community informs the ethical decision-making that goes on within that community and, consequently, shapes the actions of Christians who participate within that community."
Longenecker & Still
