Make known the glory of God (Col. 1:27)

“To the saints,

God chose

To make known

Among the gentiles

The riches

Of the glory

Of this mystery,

Which is

Christ in you,

The hope of glory.”

οἷς ἠθέλησεν ὁ Θεὸς γνωρίσαι τί τὸ πλοῦτος τῆς δόξης τοῦ μυστηρίου τούτου ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν, ὅς ἐστιν Χριστὸς ἐν ὑμῖν, ἡ ἐλπὶς τῆς δόξης·

Paul said, “To the saints (οἷς), God (ὁ Θεὸς) chose (ἠθέλησεν) to make known (γνωρίσαι) among the gentiles (ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν) the riches (τί τὸ πλοῦτος) of the glory (τῆς δόξης) of this mystery (τοῦ μυστηρίου τούτου), which is Christ in you (ὅς ἐστιν Χριστὸς ἐν ὑμῖν), the hope of glory (ἡ ἐλπὶς τῆς δόξης).”  Paul indicated that God made know to the followers of Jesus Christ, his saints, that he had chosen the gentiles to give the rich glory of this mystery.  Christ is with them as the hope of glory.  The gentiles were to be saved with the glorious mystery of Jesus Christ.  Do you believe that non-Jewish people can be saved?
