The cross, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest event in history! But not until Paul's letters is it clear that He did not only come to redeem His people Israel but all of mankind. "Who gave himself a ransom for all" (1 Tim. 2:4).
The Lord Jesus Christ dramatically appeared to Saul of Tarsus, saving him and making him Paul "the Apostle of the Gentiles" (Rom. 11:13). God interrupted Prophecy and inserted the Mystery between the 69th and 70th week of Daniel.
The Mystery is the formation of the Body of Christ in the dispensation of the grace of God (the parenthetical amnesty period in which we now live). The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the new agency, the Body of Christ with which He plans to reclaim and populate the heavenly places.

To understand the Bible it is necessary to divide between "Mystery" and "Prophecy." Today anyone who believes the gospel (1 Cor. 15:3, 4) becomes part of the Body of Christ, not Israel.
The Body of Christ is separate and distinct from Israel. Israel is promised the kingdom on earth, while the Body of Christ will live "eternal in the heavens" (2 Cor. 5:1).
Israel rejected God’s renewed offer of salvation with the stoning of Stephen: “through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles” (Rom. 11:11).
