Jesus’s Marvelous Plan For His Church

In this section (4:11-16), Paul continues his in-depth explanation of Jesus’s blueprint for building and unifying His church. He has provided special gifts (people) for the:

  1. Building’s Foundation (4:11a)
  2. The Apostles
  3. The Prophets
  4. Building’s Framing (4:11b)
  5. The Evangelists
  6. The Pastor’s and Teachers


For, after our Lord rose from the dead, the Apostles were invested with power from on high when the Holy Spirit came down, were filled from all, and had perfect knowledge - Irenaeus

Since the Lord Jesus Christ sent the apostles to preach, [our rule is] that no others ought to be received as preachers than those whom Christ appointed...[the Son] does not seem to have revealed Him to any other than the apostles, whom he sent forth to preach – Tertullian
