    The Church/Body of Christ in OT !

    The Church, the Body of Christ was in the Old Testament. Here its called tbe City of God Ps 46:4

    There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
    "... I have my own private opinion that there is no such a thing as
    preaching Christ and him crucified, unless you preach what now-a-days is
    called Calvinism. I have my own ideas, and those I always state boldly. It is
    a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else."

    Rom. 5:8; 14:5.
    Israel under the old covenant was ethnic and of the flesh.

    Israel under the new covenant is spiritual and of the heart.

    Dispies try in vein to make the new covenant of faith into the same failed old covenant of the flesh.

    Amen, and the Fountain of God's Grace upon the City of God, the Church, is also depicted as the tabernacle or house of David in Zech. 12:10, which later occured on the Day of Pentecost exclusively upon the members of Christ's Church which also includes the Gentiles Acts 15:16-17, Called and Saved according to God's Purpose and Grace given them In Christ Jesus before the World began 2 Tim. 1:9.

    The Church, the Body of Christ in the OT is here called the Nation, the people chosen for His Own Inheritance.

    Ps 33:12

    Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

    The NT counterpart is the Church Chosen in Christ Eph 1:4 Gods own Inheritance Eph 1:18

    The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,


    1 Pet 2:9

    But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
    "... I have my own private opinion that there is no such a thing as

    This passage is about the circumcision of Christ, on the cross, when his flesh was cut off from his soul and spirit.
