Christ - Centrality - Church

Paul described the Church as the Body of Christ. Can you get any more one with Christ than that! Can you be any more central to the purpose of God than that.

Since Christ is the antitype, the substance, the fulfilment of promise and of the Law and of the Prophets, so therefore is His body - which is the Church.

Therefore the Church isn't just an unforeseen parenthesis inserted while we wait for God to get back to His real purpose (such as saving Israel during the Millennium, and restoring Levitical worship). No - the Gospel Paul preached to the Gentiles is the same Gospel Jesus preached to Israel: the Gospel of the Kingdom.
