1 Peter 2:4 (ESV) You come to him, A LIVING STONE rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, Bill Wright – Jesus is the Living Stone! This Living Stone was rejected by the general population, but it was chosen and precious to God. Jesus, the LIVING STONE, is also the cornerstone from which God will build HIS foundation for HIS glorious Temple, the church. This comes from a prophecy made 800 years earlier by Isaiah. Isaiah 28:16 (NIV) “So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I lay a Stone in Zion, a tested Stone, a precious Cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic.”
