10 The same one who descended is also the one who ascended above the heights of heaven, in order to begin the restoration and fulfillment[a] of all things.

11 And he has appointed some with grace to be apostles, and some with grace to be prophets, and some with grace to be evangelists,[b] and some with grace to be pastors,[c] and some with grace to be teachers.[d] 12 And their calling is to nurture and prepare all the holy believers to do their own works of ministry, and as they do this they will enlarge and build up the body of Christ.
