    2. The Mystery of the Body of Christ

    Colossians 1:26-27 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints; To who God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

    Ephesians 3:6-7 That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ, by the gospel: Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of god given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

    3. The Mystery of the Wisdom of God

    1 Corinthians 2:7-8 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucifed the Lord of glory.

    4. The Mystery of the Gathering of the Body of Christ

    1 Corinthians 15:51-52 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    5. The Mystery of Christ and the Church

    Ephesians 5:32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

    7. The Mystery of Godliness
