Jewish And Gentile Believers United In Christ

12 At that time you were without the Messiah, excluded from citizenship in Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise. You had no hope and were in the world without God. 13 But now, in union with the Messiah Jesus, you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah. 14 For it is he who is our peace. Through his mortality he made both groups one by tearing down the wall of hostility that divided them.
