It is a consequence of this that I, Sha'ul, am a prisoner of the Messiah Yeshua on behalf of you Gentiles.
I assume that you have heard of the work God in his grace has given me to do for your benefit,
and that it was by a revelation that this secret plan was made known to me. I have already written about it briefly,
and if you read what I have written, you will grasp how I understand this secret plan concerning the Messiah.
In past generations it was not made known to mankind, as the Spirit is now revealing it to his emissaries and prophets,
that in union with the Messiah and through the Good News the Gentiles were to be joint heirs, a joint body and joint sharers with the Jews in what God has promised.
