Chapter 3

3:2  If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:

grace

Grace (imparted). Ephesians 3:2-8; Ephesians 4:7,29; Romans 6:1; 2 Peter 3:18.

3:3  How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,

mystery

(See Scofield "Matthew 13:11") .

3:4  Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)

mystery

(See Scofield "Matthew 13:11") .

3:6  That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

That the Gentiles

That the Gentiles were to be saved was no mystery Romans 9:24-33; Romans 10:19-21. The mystery "hid in God" was the divine purpose to make of Jew and Gentile a wholly new thing--"the church, which is his Christ's body," formed by the baptism with the Holy Spirit 1 Corinthians 12:12,13 and in which the earthly distinction of Jew and Gentile disappears ; Ephesians 2:14,15; Colossians 3:10,11. The revelation of this mystery, which was foretold, but not explained by Christ Matthew 16:18 was committed to Paul. In his writings alone we find the doctrine, position, walk, and destiny of the church.

3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

mystery

(See Scofield "Matthew 13:11") .
