Ephesians 2:11-22 The Problem with Abraham (June 22 2008)


The chosen people of the Old Testament were to be a blessing to the nations and were privileged to be in covenant with God. But rather than blessing, this created hostility between Jew and Gentile. It is through the gospel, the blood of Jesus Christ, that the Gentiles have been brought into covenant with God, along with Jews who believe, thereby creating one people in place of two, and building them together into the church, a dwelling place for God.
