The lesson on March 30, 2014 was part 21 of the “Ephesians” study.  A review of why PAul quoted from the Old Testament in Ephesians 4, but we find that this quote showed the special name of Christ in Psalms 68.  You also find reference made to the heaven of heavens which is where Christ was placed above in his ascension of Ephesians 4.  This lesson was emphasizing you should learn three things.  1). This ministry involves a readjustment to the newly (ACTS 28) created and un‐prophesied body of Christ. 2) There are 4 gifts to the church in verse 4:11.  There are 2 foundational and readable TODAY and there are 2 on going that exist TODAY!!; and 3) These gifts have a threefold purpose: A. Perfecting of the saints B. Work of the ministry, and C. Edifying of the body of Christ.  The scripture reading was from Ephesians 4:11-16 KJV “11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”
