Foundation of the World - part 2
Another Look at Heb 9:26 in light of Luke 11:50-51
SUMMARY CONCLUSION: (from part 1)
The Bible appears to be equating foundation of the world with Christ Himself. He is the everlasting foundation, the beginning and the end. The world seems to point to the kingdom itself on which the church built gold silver precious stones, wood hay stubble. Elect were chosen from the foundation of the world (in Christ) in eternity past according to God’s foreknowledge. Christ slain from the foundation of the world appears to relate to the certainty of the prophesied atonement.

WORLD, EARTH: BODY OF CHRIST?
Please refer to the following study on the bereanstudies website:
As a follow up to the first study, it’s becoming clearer, by Grace that foundation of the world (earth) is speaking of the Body of Christ. So Christ is slain from (creation of the BODY) by the BODY (Babylon).
