“In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets - As the foundation sustains the building, so the word of God, declared by the apostles and prophets, sustains the faith of all believers. God laid the foundation by them; but Christ himself is the chief corner - stone of the foundation. Elsewhere he is termed the foundation itself, #1Cor 3:11|.
2:21 On whom all the building fitly framed together - The whole fabric of the universal church rises up like a great pile of living materials. Into an holy temple in the Lord - Dedicated to Christ, and inhabited by him, in which he displays his presence, and is worshipped and glorified. What is the temple of Diana of the Ephesians, whom ye formerly worshipped, to this?
Eph 2:22 In whom ye also. The Ephesian Christians. Are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. The Shekinah descended and dwelt in the tabernacle between the cherubim (Ex 25:22); but God, by means of the Spirit, dwells in the spiritual temple, in the hearts of believers. This temple is composed of living stones, has a holy priesthood, and spiritual sacrifices (1Pe 2:5).
