Paul was not one of the twelve men chosen by the Lord Jesus to be a disciple. He was not one of the multitude who was baptised by John unto repentance early in Christ's ministry.

Ephesians 3:11

Ephesians 3:11

The mystery of the Church was in God's heart and mind from the beginning, but there was a special reason why the Lord kept the 'dispensation of the grace of God' a secret, during his earthly ministry. Indeed, it was kept hidden from ages and generations - and cleverly concealed from angelic beings, invisible powers and the prince of the power of the air.
