1 This is the reason that I Paul am a prisoner for Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles—
2 for surely you have already heard of the commission of God's grace that was given me for you,
3 and how the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I wrote above in a few words,
4 a reading of which will enable you to perceive my understanding of the mystery of Christ.
5 In former generations this mystery was not made known to humankind, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit:
6 that is, the Gentiles have become fellow heirs, members of the same body, and sharers in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
