1. Body parts. 2. Individuals composing a group. Jesus warned of body parts which cause one to sin (Matthew 5:29). As a Christian, Paul struggled with the reality of body parts which continue to give in to sin (Romans 6:13). The bodily members are the sphere where the law of sin (Romans 7:23) and passions (James 4:1) are at work. The image of various body parts cooperating in the life of one organism frequently serves to illustrate the unity of the church which is composed of different individuals exercising various, necessary functions (Romans 12:4-5; 1 Corinthians 12:12,1 Corinthians 12:27; compare Ephesians 4:25; Ephesians 5:30). See Body; Body of Christ; Church.
