The beginning of The Church which is the Body of Christ represents a significant change in God’s dealing with mankind. A shift which brought about a change in stewards; Israel was replaced by Gentiles who believed that Jesus Christ was their Saviour, that he died for their sins. Is this an important change? Most definitely YES! But when did this take place? This is something which is not considered by many Christians. Olive and Lloyd Allen have done a good job in bringing this to our attention and giving reasons why it is important.
