God’s Grace & Gifts, Given by the Measure of Our Messiah Ephesians 4 #1

Bible on Money

Unity in the Body

7 Now grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of the Messiah’s gift.

8 For it says: When He ascended on high, He took prisoners into captivity; He gave gifts to people.

Ephesians 4:7-8 HCSB

Notice Paul’s question in the very next verse which leads to a deeper discernment concerning the meaning of the gifts and the mystery of Christ’s ascension:

9 But what does “He ascended” mean except that He descended to the lower parts of the earth?

Ephesians 4:9 HCSB

Ephesians 4:8 For it says: When He ascended on high, He took prisoners into captivity; He gave gifts to people.

Paul points to fulfilled prophecy and its divinely revealed meaning: The Truth contained in Christ’s body! Us.

Psalm 68:18 “You have ascended on high, You have led captive Your captives”
