3:28 you are all one in Christ Jesus. The wall of separation between Jew and Gentile is removed for those united to Christ: all in Christ are Abraham’s seed (Eph. 2:14–16; Col. 3:11). Indeed, no human distinctions avail as advantages in the matter of salvation. Paul does not obliterate these distinctions, such as those between the sexes, but indicates they give no preferential status in terms of our union with Christ. Until Christ returns, the created order remains and order in the church takes account of it (1 Cor. 11:3; 14:34; 1 Tim. 2:11–14). See “The Church” at Eph. 2:19.
