About IN—Tracing the Messiah’s continuing incarnation in the New Covenant People


“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray for all who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me...I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.” John 17:20, 21, 26

IN moves though the New Testament, starting with the Gospels’ Incarnation of the Son, and Act’s Inauguration of the Holy Spirit, and on through the Letters’ explanation of various aspects of the believer’s life IN Christ, to Revelation’s message that informs and invites response. Good for group or personal study.

The final chapter, "INVERTED," considers how biblical truths of being IN Christ have been distorted throughout history, and our need to be alert to passed-down unbiblical viewpoints.

Recommendation for IN

From class use:

“Our Adult Class meets every Sunday at the Centenary Methodist English Church in Hyderabad. This year we completed the ALL study, and are about to complete IN. We had a wonderful time as we studied together. ALL made us walk through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, stopping to feast on His Word, until we celebrate the wedding supper of the Lamb. IN has chosen us "Indians" too, and has given us insights into the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in us. We want to thank you for sharing ALL and IN with us, as it has enriched us immensely.”

From personal use:

“As I meditated on the IN book and dug deeper into what it means to be 'in' Christ, there were at least seven reminders that were imprinted upon my heart and soul and mind, and added essence, meaning, and power to my personal walk with the Lord Jesus!”
