The Gospel is a great mystery—but not in the sense we might expect. As he explores Paul’s words in Ephesians 3:1–6, Alistair Begg reminds us that the Gospel is not a puzzle that can be solved by human deduction or reason but a wonder that can only be known by the life-giving work of the Holy Spirit. The mystery of Christ is that Jews and gentiles alike can be brought near to God as members of one body through the work of Jesus.
3how the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have written briefly. 4When you read this, you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit. 6This mystery is1 that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
