Last night we spent some more time in the book of Ephesians, focusing on chapter 2:11-22. In summary, Paul reminds the Gentiles (non-Jews) that they were alienated from Israel, and without hope before Jesus, but now in Christ, they are brought into God’s covenant promise. We talked about how Jesus, in this sense, restored the […]
