By Keith McPaul

This short section gives us an important insight into how the early Christians perceived the resurrection. In Romans 8, Galatians 2, John 14, and in Colossians 3, we see their conviction that Christ was a life-giving presence, the spirit indwelling in those who had never 'seen the Lord', let alone viewed the empty tomb. The new community 'was' in Christ because Christ 'was' in them.
