People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 4:4


Eph 4:4 [There is] one body. The Unity commanded has a basis in seven unities which existed in the church, and should exist in all ages. There was then only one body, the church, the body of Christ; not a Gentile body and a Jewish body. Modern denominations were unknown. Compare Ro 12:5 1Co 12:12,13 Eph 2:16. And one Spirit. The same Spirit bestowed upon Jew and Gentile, and upon all saints. Even as ye are called in one hope of your calling. Wherever called and from whatever state, all were filled with one hope, that of immortality.
