Ephesians 2:15 (NLT) - "He did this by ending the system of law with its commandments and regulations. He made peace between Jews and Gentiles by creating in Himself one new people from the two groups."
What Christ did as a result of His work on the cross was to show mankind they didn't have to keep a set of laws and regulations to make them pleasing to God. When they believed on Christ and received Him because of His grace, they would realize they didn't have to try to earn God's acceptance. They had peace with God because God accepted Christ's death, burial, and resurrection sufficient for their salvation. Paul stresses here that believers, whether Jew or Gentile, were brought into one new Body - The Church; and, together they became one new people - Christians.
