The teaching of the apostles is the entire speaking of God in the New Testament, first in the Son as a man, then in the Son as the Spirit through the apostles. Although many matters are covered in the New Testament, such as baptism, head covering, foot-washing, and even the Lord's table, these items are not the central focus of God's speaking. Rather, the New Testament presents a full picture of God's New Testament economy, that is, His plan to produce an enlarged expression of Himself through the redemption, regeneration, transformation, and glorification of His chosen elect. This process has been made possible through the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Christ and through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit to produce the Body of Christ. Throughout the New Testament, God's speaking is through man and for man in order to gain a corporate expression of Himself. According to the Gospels, this expression was manifested in Christ; according to the Epistles, it is manifested in the church; and according to the book of Revelation, it will be consummately manifested in the New Jerusalem. This is the essence and focus of the apostles' teaching.

About the Author

Born in 1905 in northern China, Witness Lee was raised in a Christian family and educated in English-speaking schools. At the age of 19 he believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and consecrated himself to preach the gospel. Early in his service, Witness Lee met Watchman Nee and began to labor together with him. In 1949 Witness Lee was sent by Watchman Nee to Taiwan to ensure that the things delivered to them by the Lord would be preserved. In 1962 Witness Lee came to the United States and began to minister here. He ministered in weekly conferences, delivering several thousand spoken messages until 1997. He gave his last public conference in February 1997 at the age of 91. His major work, Life-Study of the Bible, comprises over 25,000 pages of commentary on every book of the Bible from the perspective of the believers' enjoyment and experience of God's divine life in Christ through the Spirit.
