1.The mystery was hidden for centuries.

It was hinted at in the Garden (Gen. 3:15)

It was pictured in the Sacrificial system

It was culminated in Christ

It was revealed to the Apostles & prophets

to be taught the world building the Church.

 

2) The mystery was revealed to the Apostles & Prophets.

- The Church is not the mystery.

- The gospel is the mystery

- The church is the product of the gospel (The mystery)

 

3) The mystery was foreordained before the foundation of the World.

- “Hidden” helps us to see that it was always the plan.

-The gospel that created the Church is not a rejection of Israel or replacement of them as Gods National people.

-It simply makes the Church “Distinct” from Israel.
