New Defender's Study Bible Notes

3:27 baptized into Christ. See Romans 6:3; I Corinthians 12:13. When we have been “immersed” into the spiritual body of Christ, then He becomes our spiritual identity.

3:28 all one in Christ. Although national identity, economic status, marital relationship and other such distinctions are very real in the divine economy, our position in Christ is completely independent of any such matters. Every Christian is saved simply through faith in Christ and will be rewarded as a Christian simply in relation to what he or she has done in proportion to light and opportunities given, as well as their motives in doing it (I Corinthians 3:11-15).
