In our last lesson, we learned that the body of Christ is made up of the people who have been saved by placing their faith and trust in Him. This body is known as the "church." The church was officially inaugurated on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit united the 120 disciples into one spiritual body. Through the Holy Spirit, the disciples were united to each other and to the glorified Lord Jesus as their Head. They had been believers before this time, but now they were the Church—the Body of Christ. The Bible says, "For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one Body…"
On that same day, the gospel was preached to a great multitude and 3,000 people were saved. The Holy Spirit placed these new believers in the Body of Christ. After this, others were saved daily and added to the Body of Christ as well. Acts 5:14 says, "And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women."
At first, the Church was composed entirely of Jewish believers. Later on, the gospel was preached to the Gentiles (those who were not of the Jewish race). Many of them believed and were added to the Body of Christ as well. In the Church, Jews and Gentiles were made one.
