What is a "Soma" Group?
In 1 Corinthians 12, the Apostle Paul says the church is one "body" yet many parts, of which Christ is the head. No part of the body is more or less important than another and every part of the "body" needs each other. But there's another layer, members of the Body of Christ are also the physical representation of Christ in this world. The Church is the "body" through which Christ manifests His life to the world today! When Paul makes these remarks, the greek work he uses is "Soma." When believers come together, we are the spiritual soma of Christ and the physical representation of Christ's soma to the world!
