The Church is the Gospel
The Surprise of Epiphany is that the Churchis the Gospel. God is putting the Principalities and Powers on notice that He is reclaiming Humanity from every tribe, tongue, and nation. This is an act of war--and we're right in the middle of it. St. Paul tells us in Ephesians 3 that the purpose of God hidden from the ages is that now the manifold Wisdom of God might be made known by the Church to the Principalities and Powers in heavenly places.
What are these Prinicipalities and Powerss with which we are engaged in war?
What is this Church?
And what is this Wisdom of God that we are making known?
