The Church Epistles: Romans to Thessalonians
Usually identified with the Christian sect of Hyper-dispensationalism-which recognizes a clear distinction between the Church and Israel and claims that the Church began with the ministry of the Apostle Paul-E.W. Bullinger focuses here on Paul's epistles to the churches, defending them as God's unique revelation and expounding on the great truth of the Mystery, or Body of Christ. This passionate attempt to "bring back vital truths to their proper place" is a must-read for Bible scholars and believers alike. British clergyman ETHELBERT WILLIAM BULLINGER (1837-1913) was one of the most respected Bible scholars of the 19th century. He is author of numerous works including Commentary on Revelation, Great Cloud of Witnesses, and How to Enjoy the Bible.

This is no new revelation, but an old error. It is not the recovery of the lost truth, but a continuation of dispensational theology, meant to cut the teachings of Christ right out of the word without actually using a razor blade. All of Paul's epistles are founded on what is taught by Jesus in the gospels. Without a thorough understanding of ALL of Jesus teachings, not just a verse here and there, you will never understand the epistles or what the true good news of the kingdom of God was and who you really are once you actually get "in Christ". Paul was NEVER given a special understanding of the mystery of Christ, what this theology does is take Paul out of context and actually form "another gospel", which is not another but a perversion of the gospel.
Thank you so much!
I discovered this book by reading commentary on Revelation, i beleive if the entire body of Christ can get a hold of all of Gods truths these Books contains, then we will not be fighting so much as to which Church ("denominations") has the truth. My prayer is that the body of beleivers in Christ will learn by the leading of the Holy Spirit the truth about our blessed hope and who we are in Christ.
