INTRODUCTION

In Old Testament times God raised up the nation of Israel as the people through which He could reveal His plan of salvation to the world. After Israel rejected Jesus, God raised up a new group of people through which He would actively work in the world. That group is known as the Church. The Church has a special position and purpose in God’s plan for the nations. This lesson explains the role of the Church in the world.
