Ephesians 2:20

20 Being 1abuilt upon the 2bfoundation of the capostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the 3dcornerstone;

202 The foundation of the church is Christ (1 Cor. 3:11). Because the mystery of Christ was revealed to the apostles (3:5-6), the revelation they received is considered the foundation on which the church is built. This corresponds with the rock in Matt. 16:18, which is not only Christ but also the revelation concerning Christ, on which Christ will build His church. Therefore, the foundation of the apostles and prophets is the revelation they received for the building of the church.
