Title: ROMANS 16:7 IN CHRIST BEFORE PAUL
Post by: doug on December 06, 2019, 08:07:30 am
Romans 16:7 Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellow-prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.

 Those in Christ before Paul had believed the preaching of Peter and the apostles. They were not in the body of Christ. They had the promise of the Davidic kingdom on earth (Exodus 19:5-6 Daniel 7:18 Psalm 22:28).

 Paul addressed them in his epistles and admonished those in the body to receive those weak in the faith (Romans 15:1).

Doug I will have to disagree with you here...Peter and the Apostles are part of the Church (body of Christ) as much as you and I are....Look to ACTS 1: 4-5.

They were to receive the Holy Spirit (baptized in the spirit) with is part of the Church......We have the Holy Spirit indwelling within us.

Peter and the apostles are never said to be in the body of Christ. There were Gentiles who believed and were added to the church of God (Acts 10:45 Acts11:1).
It wasn't until Paul that we read of the body of Christ and that Gentiles were of the same body of Christ (Ephesians 3:6). That the Gentiles would be in the body was a mystery (Ephesians 3:3).
Peter and the apostles and Gentiles were part of the believing remnant of Israel.
