When I think of all this, I, Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus for the benefit of you Gentiles . . .
assuming, by the way, that you know God gave me the special responsibility of extending his grace to you Gentiles.
As I briefly wrote earlier, God himself revealed his mysterious plan to me.
As you read what I have written, you will understand my insight into this plan regarding Christ.
God did not reveal it to previous generations, but now by his Spirit he has revealed it to his holy apostles and prophets.
And this is God’s plan: Both Gentiles and Jews who believe the Good News share equally in the riches inherited by God’s children. Both are part of the same body, and both enjoy the promise of blessings because they belong to Christ Jesus.
