PAUL’S MINISTRY TO THE GENTILES
3 For this reason, I, Paul, the prisonerw of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles—2 assuming you have heard about the administration of God’s grace that he gave me for you. 3 The mystery was made known to me by revelation,x as I have briefly written above. 4 By reading this you are able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ.y 5 This was not made known to peopleB in other generations as it is now revealed to his holy apostles and prophetsz by the Spirit: 6 The Gentiles are coheirs, members of the same body, and partners in the promiseaa in Christ Jesus through the gospel. 7 I was made a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace that was given to me by the working of his power.ab
8 This grace was given to me—the least of all the saints—to proclaim to the Gentiles the incalculable richesac of Christ, 9 and to shed light for all about the administration of the mystery hidden for ages in God who createdad all things. 10 This is so that God’s multi-faceted wisdomae may now be made known through the church to the rulers and authorities in the heavens.af 11 This is according to his eternal purposeag accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.
