THE MYSTERY BIBLE VERSES
Scriptures dealing with it, an
everyday work of thankfulness and remembrance.
The Oikonomia of the Musterion [Eph 3:9]
The most accurate translation of the Greek word Musterion, translated
as Mystery in the KJV but most properly meaning The Secret, and
we may say that according to our specific context it refers to The Great
Secret revealed by God to the members of the Body of Christ living in this
administration of Grace. The Greek word Oikonomia, mainly translated dispensation
in the KJV, wrongly translated as fellowship in Eph. 3:9, means administration,
as you will see below.
