Brought near

... you were without Christ, excluded from the citizenship of Israel, and foreigners to the covenants of promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus, you who were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
Ephesians 2v12-13

I thought of this verse because of the incongruity - and appropriateness - of celebrating a Good Friday meal with pulled pork. Non-kosher gentiles brought in to God's people by the death of the Jewish Messiah.
