Notes & Transcripts
Jesus is the Head and Chief Shepherd of His Body, the Eklesia.
He promised to build His Church Himself.
Nevertheless, He sent the Holy Spirit to earth to help build His church
Additionally, He calls and anoints some of His followers to function in one or more of five different offices.

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
