Ephesians 2:19-20 – The First Stone

Ephesians 2:19-20
19
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

-A cornerstone is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation.  It is important to understand that Jesus is not just a stone that God added later as a remedy to the sin problem.  He is in fact the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. (Revelation 1:18) Jesus is God and has been God forever.  He “was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you.” (1 Peter 1:20)
