Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories. It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.
The prophets knew of the coming sacrifice of Christ, revealed to them by the Spirit, but that it would be for us, a later people. The angels know, but it is a relationship of which they can only look at but not participate in. It is the Good News of the mercy of the LORD, God; the Almighty bestowed through grace upon those whom He has chosen.
