<011> Thesis:   Our "burial" with Christ Jesus is the mid-point issue of our ability to live as Christians. Introduction:   In our last study we considered the issues involved in "baptism" as an actual determination by the Father that we are to be considered recipients of everything that Jesus said and did. This issue of our "baptism into Christ Jesus" is the root of the plethora of New Testament references to being "in Christ" and is the foundation of our "death" to both Adam as a "federal head" and to his action as the instrumentality of our bondage to death and the spirit of sin. Also in that study we pointed out that this "baptism into Christ Jesus" was pointedly focused by Paul upon His "baptism into The Death". This is Paul deliberately pulling one issue out of all that are involved in our "baptism" and setting it up for our particular consideration. This evening we are going to go with Paul into this particular: baptism into "The Death" and its subsequent reality of "burial".
