This Bible Study Chart illustrates that, with the rejection of Israel of The LORD Jesus Christ and His Kingdom, the message of the twelve Apostles went from the particular to the general.
While LATER, with the Apostle Paul, (the chief of sinners saved by Grace), his message, (received by direct revelation from the Glorified Risen Christ), went from the general to the particular again, climaxed by the glorious Truth about Christ and His Body, The Mystery.
Thus the TRANSITION lies BETWEEN and explains the generalities in the Book of Acts which have puzzled so many!
In Ephesians 1:13 the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul declares that men are saved and sealed by hearing and BELIEVING the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation. Therefore, here, now, is declared unto you the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation: "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" 1 Corinthians 15:3-4. BELIEVE today. The time is short.
So There You Have it!
Spread this message to everyone you know, far and wide.
Grace be to you and peace, from God: our Father, and The LORD Jesus Christ.
In The LORD Jesus Christ,
