Psalm 118:22-23 ” The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.”

The story comes out of Matthew 21:42 where Jesus is quoting this Scripture to the chief priests and elders of the Temple…whom were not too happy about Him accusing them of rejecting the Messiah…namely Himself, Jesus.  Continuing in the next verse, Jesus countered with, “Therefore, I tell you that the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit.”  Jesus was offering the gift of salvation to Gentiles…building His Church from those willing to accept Him as Savior.  And as Believers in Christ, we are the Church.   To paraphrase Ephesians 2:20, We the Church, are  God’s people,  built on the foundation of all  martyred  apostles and prophets,  with Jesus being the chief cornerstone.
