In "The Blessed Hope", Session #2, Bible Teacher Doug Riggs goes into a solid biblical presentation of "the mystery" given to the Apostle Paul for the church. He explains some of the clearly defined distinctions between the origination, calling and destiny of Israel and the church. He answers many questions Christians have been passively avoiding with stale justifications or answering with trite explanations that keep the church in ignorance and impotence.
"The mystery" is Christ -- THE CHRIST -- Jesus Christ, the head, and the church, His body -- all making up THE CHRIST (1 Cor. 12:12).
"The mystery encompasses the whole purpose and plan of God which includes salvation, but takes us all the way back into eternity past - all the way into eternity future in defining the purpose of God (Eph. 3:11)."
"The revelation of the mystery" the Apostle Paul writes about cannot be known apart from the Holy Spirit enlightening the eyes of our hearts and giving us a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the full knowledge of Him.
