DOCTRINE

BODY  (Of Christ)

0 Comments 04 December 2017

 

1 Corinthians 12:12-27  For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. …

 

Paul mentions the BODY 15 times in the above text!  What is the Body?

 

1 Corinthians 12:27 explains Now ye are the body of Christ,…”

 

Romans 7:4 “…ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ;” 

 

Romans 12:5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ,…”

 

1 Corinthians 10:16 “…is it not the communion of the body of Christ?”

 

Ephesians 3:6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body” 

 

Ephesians 4:12 “…for the edifying of the body of Christ:”  

 

Ephesians 5:23 “…Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.”

 

Colossians 2:17 “…Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.”

 

A study of the above verses (and putting them back into their context) show that believers (Romans 10:9-13) are placed into a group, called the BODY OF CHRIST, the true Church.
