There is One Body.

EPH 4:1-6

What does Paul mean by the expression, “there is one body”?

Jesus ends this prayer with a request for unity among believers.

JOH 17:22-23

He asks that the church may be one just as He and His Father are one.

The Lord Jesus Christ secured our unity at the cross. He did it by dying for us.

ROM 5:10

He died on the cross
to reconcile us
in His body.

EPH 2:13

On this ground - the blood of Christ - , the Holy Spirit builds the body of Christ.

EPH 4:1-6

This one body is the church.

EPH 1:22-23

What does Paul mean by referring to the church as “one body”?

He starts with something that we are all familiar with - the human body.

Then he applies that truth to the church.

ROM 12:4-5

Paul gives his fullest treatment of this analogy of the body in 1 Corinthians 12.

The Corinthian church had its troubles.

They failed to see that they were all members of the same body, the body of Christ.

1CO 11:27-29
