The Purpose Revealed
Jesus Christ’s Purpose
The church is the body of Christ. Jesus is its head. He also is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead. The reference to the “firstborn from the dead” points clearly to His resurrection. He indeed has “become the firstfruits of them that slept”.
1 Corinthians 15:20 (KJB) “ But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.”
