Christ is All and In All

"...Christ is all, and in all" (Colossians 3:11).

What a profound, succinct statement!

Christ is all - therefore you don't need anything else, such as Moses' Law; and

He is in all - even in you, though you be a Gentile who does not keep Moses' Law.

That statement sums up Paul's revelation - Paul's Gospel.

It's a take on Old Testament prophecy that is quite different in many ways to some popular modern ways of applying many of the same passages in the Bible.

It's a take that didn't envisage believers keeping Moses' Law.

It's a take that didn't see Old Testament prophecy as postponed and still to be fulfilled in the future.
