1 Peter 2:4-8; As living stones…

In these verses both Jesus and believers are called living stones.  Why?  Jesus as a living stone is choice and precious to God, a cornerstone, the main foundation for the building which is the house and community of the faithful.  For believers, we make up the components of a “spiritual house”, a community of believers.  In each case building a community of faith is central to the imagery of the “living stone”.
