    Hi , and I am sure that the ONE GOSPEL people lump all believers together and even some dispensationalist do also ??

    I never could never understand how Israel could also be in the Body of Christ and then still be Jewish ??

    Hi , and so far no one has answered , and when I write my proof text , it is the only one in my opinion that answers that problem OF THE 12 in 12 OUT and is another POWERFUL verse for the Acts 9:6 position of why the Body of Christ began with SAUL / PAUL !!

    What are the differences between being "in" and "out" of the Body of Christ?

    Hi , and some dispensationalist , believe that the 12 Apostles , will not only sit in the Milleninnal Kingdom but also be in the Body of Christ at the SAME TIME !!

    To me , it is like SAUL/PAUL is saved by the Kingdom , but is also in the Body of Christ and this is an Acts 28 , position !!

    That didn't answer my question. What's the big deal here with this two gospel phenomenon? What are the differences between being "in" or "out"? I don't see that there are any significant differences. Both supposed groups are partakers in the new covenant, both are born again, both are assured eternal security, and both find their salvation in the life, death and resurrection of Christ Jesus. Messiah Jesus is the Messiah, the chosen and anointed one of God, the King of Israel and the Lord of the Gentiles.

    Hi and those in the Kingdom will be " Kings and Priests " in the Millennium , which is and Earthly Kingdom , Rev 1:6 !!

    The Body of Christ will be an Heavenly in nature , and is different from Israel .

    There are 6 Gospel that Paul mentions and are split into 9 different Parts .

    The New Covenant is Israel's and NOT for the Body of Christ as Eph 2:12 PROVES !!

    What you wrote is MOOT !!

    Eph. 2:12 proves that at one time we were strangers to the covenants and now we are not.

    I don't know if we are "under" a covenant but we are "under" the law of Christ (1 Cor. 9:21), who is the mediator of a new covenant (Heb. 9:15). We are no longer strangers to the covenants (Eph. 2:12) which means we are no longer outsiders in relation to the covenants. Sounds like we are part of the new covenant to me.

    … " were the 12 IN or OUT of the Body of Christ ??...
    I think Paul’s body of Christ metaphor can be understood either as a discrete entity or a way to describe our relationship to Christ and to each other. If one understands the body of Christ as a distinct unit, then Paul is not referring to all the redeemed of all the ages. If one understands the body of Christ as a beautiful metaphor for how we should relate to God and to each other, then it is possible that it applies to all the redeemed of all the ages. I’m not saying the latter interpretation doesn’t mean there isn’t a divine purpose specifically for the church of which we are a part. God can work in specific ways at different times with different people, but the redeemed of all ages are all ultimately the people of God.

    Hi , and I do not believe that Paul is saying that the Body of Chrisy is a Metaphor OR a figure of speech , but we are members one with each other and provide function for Christ on earth !!

    Is it your opinion that the body of Christ will continue to "provide function for Christ on earth" in the next age? If not, will the body of Christ discontinue or will the body of Christ have a different function in the next age?
