    Who is the High Priest over the House of God here? Heb 10:21

    21 And having an high priest over the house of God;

    The High Priest is Christ and the House of God He's over is His Body the Church.

    a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else."

    21 And having an high priest over the house of God;

    The High Priest is Christ and the House of God He's over is His Body the Church.

    Exactly, and this Truth is confirmed also to the Saints in Ephesus:

    Eph. 2:19
    Now therefore ye [gentiles] are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

    The House of God in Heb. 10:21 and the Household of God in Eph. 2:19 are One and the same, one entity, The Body of Christ, which He is Head of Eph. 5:23, His Church He gave His Life for Eph. 5:25, and their High Priest Heb. 3:1: Consisting of both jew and gentile Elect 1 Pet. 1:1-2.
    My soul thirsts for God, the God Who Lives Forever:
    when shall I be brought in to see His Face? -Psalm 42:2

    32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

    Hi and , BUT the only way to enter the B O C is by the HOLY SPIRIT PLACING all believers into the BODY , 1 Cor 12:13 , and there are no BRANCHES or VINES in 1 Cor 12:13 !!

    John 15:5 doe not use the Greek words SOMA EN CHRISTOS , does it !!

    487 What the Catholic faith believes about Mary is based on what it believes about Christ, and what it teaches about Mary illumines in turn its faith in Christ.

    When we take the time to distinguish between the gospel times and the age of grace in which we live, we learn that there were clearly some differences between the time period that Jesus was fulfilling the law of Moses and the time, this age of grace, after Jesus Christ's accomplished works.

    You seem to have captured this truth when you distinguish between the analogy of being members of the body of Christ vs. being branches in a vine.
    "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers." Acts 2:42

    "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind" Philippians 2:2
