The mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have briefly written above.
By reading this you are able to understand my insight about the mystery of the Messiah.
This was not made known to people in other generations as it is now revealed to His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit:
the Gentiles are co-heirs, members of the same body, and partners of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
I was made a servant of this [gospel] by the gift of God's grace that was given to me by the working of His power.
This grace was given to me-- the least of all the saints!-- to proclaim to the Gentiles the incalculable riches of the Messiah,
and to shed light for all about the administration of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things.
