- Problem solving: When we put our heads together we are more likely to come up with solutions to problems.
- Accomplish tasks faster: A single person taking on multiple tasks will not be able to perform at a same pace as a team can. When people work together they can complete tasks faster by dividing the work to people of different abilities and knowledge.
- Healthy competition: A healthy competition in groups can be used to motivate individuals and help the team excel.
- Developing Relationships: A team that continues to work together will eventually develop an increased level of bonding. This can help people avoid unnecessary conflicts since they have become well acquainted with each other through team work.
- Everyone has unique qualities: This may be the trickiest part of team work. Each part of the body has unique abilities and plays a unique role. We can succeed only when we focus on our roles and support others in their roles.

Paul wrote Ephesians while under house arrest as a prisoner in Rome. The other prison epistles are the books of Philippians, Colossians and Philemon. Some scholars believe Ephesians was a circular letter distributed to several early Christian churches, which may explain why the reference to Ephesus is missing from copies of some manuscripts.
