Paul’s language connections “sharing” with “resurrection” (Phil. 3:10). “Christ suffered because of who he is. We suffer because we are one with him” (Letham 130).
Union with Christ in Death and Burial
I Thess. 4:13-17; “hope for Paul relates not to uncertainty, but to futurity” (133). God will make good on his promises in the future (interesting suggestions for the doctrine of assurance).
The resurrection of Christ is a legal, judicial verdict. He was raised for our justification.
