 Ephesians 2:11-22 Wall of Partition CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO

Gentiles and Jews come together “in” Christ with no distinction.  They are the church of God:

  1. Rom 1:16
  2. I Cor 12:13
  3. I Cor 10:32
  4. Gal 3:27-28
  5. Acts 15:11

As Paul said in Rom 2:27-29, it does a Jew no good to “practice” and “circumcise” if he is not saved (inwardly). Col 2:11: shows you that salvation requires Spiritual circumcision.  The “wall of partition” is what separated the Gentiles from the Jews and the covenants that God promised them.

Gentiles were:

  1. Uncircumcised
    • Rom 2:14-15
    • Had conscience
  1. Without Christ
    • Because Christ promised the seed to Abraham, Gal 3:16
    • Christ is a Jew, Jn 4
    • Salvation is of the Jews
  1. Aliens
    • Deut 14:21
  1. Strangers from the covenants
    • Abraham, Moses, David
  1. Having No hope
    • Now hope in Christ, Tit 2:13
    • Blessed hope
  1. Without God in the world
    • Had false gods

But now in Christ Jesus the Gentiles are (v. 13):

  1. Made nigh (v. 13)
    • were far off
  1. At Peace (v. 14)
    • Rom 5:1
  1. One (v. 14)
    • Eph 4 – one body
  1. No longer at enmity (v. 15)
    • Col 2:13-14
  1. Reunited (v. 16)
    • II Cor 5
  1. Granted Access by the Spirit (v. 18)
    • Rom 8:14, 26
  1. Fellow citizens
    • I Tim 3:15
  1. Built on the Foundation 
    • I Cor 3:11
    • I Pet 2:7 – corner
  1. Part of the Holy Temple (v. 21-22)
    • I  Cor3:16
    • Eph 4:13
