    The traditional and majority view of Christendom is that the Church, the Body of Christ, began on Pentecost. This study rejects this view. Below is the argument for the traditional view. 1. The Church is the Body of Christ (Ephesians ; 1 Corinthians ; Romans ; Colossians ).   The ideally both stand for virtue and values. That creates a common ground between the two schools of thought. Here are five key differences: 1. Jesus and the values he represents. 2. Stoicism seems to suppress desires. Christianity aims to expres.

    The second way St. Paul helps us to understand the church as the Body of Christ is found in his letter to the Ephesians. He tells that the church is the bride of Christ (cf. ). Stoics and Epicureans. There were substantial men in Paul’s audience, philosophers of the Stoic and Epicurean schools. And they were puzzled by Christ and his resurrection—such doctrines were “strange things to our ears.” (Acts ) A look at their own views shows why.

      “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Savior, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;” Now, of course, here again, it is so plain that his apostleship was a direct command of the Lord Jesus Christ. I was reading a book about Paul just the other night. In three different letters (Romans, 1 Corinthians, and Ephesians) Paul uses his "body" illustration to explain how people in Christ who are very different relate to each other. When I was growing up, the number one use I heard of Paul's body illustration was a condemnation of the denominational approach to Christian existence.
