Architecture of the Church

Paul speaking to Gentile believers:  “And you are built upon the foundations of the Shlichim and the prophets; and Y’shua the Mashiyach has become the head of the corner of the edifice.  And in him all the edifice is framed together and grows into a Set Apart temple in Master YHWH.  While you also are built in him for a habitation of Elohim through the Spirit.”  Ephesians 2:20-22

Continuing: “To me, among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of the Mashiyach.  And should show to all men what is the architecture of the mystery which for ages was hid up in Elohim might become known to the principalities and powers that are in heaven.”  Ephesians 2:8-10

“And that you may be able to explore, with all the Set Apart believers, what is the height and depth and length and breadth,”  Ephesians 2:18

“Until we all become one and the same, in faith and in the knowledge of the Son of Elohim, and one complete man according to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Mashiyach.”  Ephesians 3:13

“And from him (it is) the whole body is framed together and strongly melded by all the connecting points, according to the gift that is delivered by measure to each member for the growth of the body; that his structure may be perfected in love.”  Ephesians 3:16

All these verses are from the Aramaic English New Testament.  It is striking the architectural language.  Could Paul have had in mind the Temple or the Great Pyramid?  Peter also uses this imagery.  The cross section of the internal compartments of the Great Pyramid looks like a man.
