1 Corinthians 12 develops the imagery of the Church as the Body of Christ and we as members/limbs in that corpus-corporate reality. Medieval Cathedrals often had the east end apse or chapel slightly out of line to symbolize the inclined head of the Crucified.
The Mission Covenant Congregation in Uppsala has a corpus
incised in the
crucifix cut in the brick wall above the Lord's Table. What do
of such a modern attempt to symbolize our incorporation in Christ
Church as the Body of Christ?
