Eph 1:11–14

1:11–14 Paul anticipates what he will say in 3:6 about Jews and Gentiles being “fellow heirs” of the promise in Christ. Believing Jews of Paul’s day, “who were the first to hope in Christ” (v. 12), have become heirs by the will of God. Gentiles who have now received the same promise that was made to Israel—the gift of the Holy Spirit—have likewise become heirs to the praise of God’s glory.
