I, Paul, am a prisoner because of Christ Jesus. I am in prison because of my work among you who are not Jews.
I am sure you have heard that God appointed me to share his grace with you.
I'm talking about the mystery God showed me. I have already written a little about it.
By reading it you will be able to understand what I know about the mystery of Christ.
The mystery was not made known to people of other times. But now the Holy Spirit has made it known to God's holy apostles and prophets.
Here is the mystery. Because of the good news, God's promises are for non-Jews as well as for Jews. Both groups are parts of one body. They share in the promise. It belongs to them because they belong to Christ Jesus.
