“In Christ”: A Central Theme in Colossians

1:14 in whom we have redemption
1:16 in him all things were created
1:19 in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell
1:22 reconciled in his body of flesh
2:3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge
2:6 walk in him
2:7 rooted and built up in him
2:9 in him all the fullness of deity dwells bodily
2:10 you have been filled in him
2:11 you were circumcised in him
2:12 in him you were raised up
2:15 triumphing over them in him
3:20 pleasing in the Lord
4:7 fellow servant in the Lord
4:17 the ministry that you have received in the Lord
