    What is the "Spiritual House" at 1 Peter 2:5-6?

    The following words of Peter were written at a time when the nation of Israel was temporarily set aside so I just cannot believe that the "spiritual house" in the following verse is speaking about the nation of Israel:

    "Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded" (1 Pet.2:5-6).

    The spiritually enlightened recognize the truth that the "spiritual house" is the Body of Christ of which the Lord Jesus is the chief corner stone:

    "And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone" (Eph.2:16-20).

    I wonder if anyone will actually say that the "spiritual house" spoken of by Peter is the nation of Israel despite the fact that when he wrote those words the nation of Israel remained in unbelief?

    So you really think that the "spiritual house" is Israel despite the fact that at the time Peter wrote this epistle the nation of Israel was temporarily cast aside because of unbelief?

    Dan, I never said otherwise. But would you please identify the "spiritual house" spoken of in the following passage:

    "Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded"
    (1 Pet.2:5-6).

    Remember, at the time when Peter wrote those words the nation of Israel had already been temporarily set aside because of unbelief. So what is Peter referring to when he speaks of the "spiritual house"?
