Eph 3:6 That. The mystery long hidden, but at last revealed, is now given. The Gentiles should be fellow-heirs. The wall of partition broken down, Jews and Gentiles equally received, heirs alike of the gospel, "fellow-members" of the church, "fellow-partakers" of the gospel promises. Compare Ac 10:34 11:18 13:46-48.
