"In Christ" Grid

by Matt Slick

The following chart shows all the verses that contain the phrase "in Christ."  I've bolded some of the words in some of the verses to show you some of the benefits of being "in Christ." Theologically speaking, the phrase "in Christ" is a sign of federal headship.  This means that Christ is our representative.  If you will look below at 1 Cor. 15:22, you will see it says "as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will remain alive."  Adam was our federal head in the sense that he represented all of mankind.  On the other hand, Jesus is our federal head in that he represented his people on the cross.  So, take a look at what the Scriptures say about "in Christ."
