Watch: N.T. Wright on Why Paul Keeps Saying “In Him” in Ephesians

We are working on final editing and fine tuning of the course Paul and His Letter to the Ephesians with Professor N.T. Wright. It will be available in just a few weeks; we hope you will enjoy it.

Many of you submitted questions that you would like Professor Wright to address in the course.

We’re working with Professor Wright to address as many of those questions as we can. Keep an eye out for emails, ebooks and videos like the one below.

It is no surprise that terms like ‘predestined’, ‘called’, and ‘chosen’ are a focal point in the early part of the letter to the Ephesians.

Professor Wright reminds us that these are terms very familiar to those acquainted with Israel’s story. Israel’s story becomes the story of those who are ‘in Christ’. For this reason, we need to understand the story of Jesus the King as the fulfillment of Israel’s story.

In this clip with Prof. Wright, we are reminded that these terms are fulfilled ‘in Him’.
