There is a trinitarian shape to the second half of chapter two: What the Gentiles were, what they are now, and what that means for our life together. This mystery is the work of the Holy Trinity. How does the Holy Trinity provide us with access to Himself? Paul says we are built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus as the Cornerstone. Why does Paul say “apostles and prophets” rather than “prophets and apostles”? Who are the prophets? Does Paul include himself among the apostles? Since the foundation and the Cornerstone are people, who is the holy temple? How does the end of chapter two flow right into the beginning of chapter three? Your comments and questions are encouraged. All are welcome.
