What is the doctrine of union with Christ, and how does it relate to justification and sanctification? Does union with Christ encompass the entire order of salvation or only refer to a specific stage in the redemption process? How should we distinguish redemption accomplished and redemption applied? What eschatological aspects are present in justification? How does the category of recapitulation capture the active obedience of Christ?

In this episode of the Credo podcast, Matthew Barrett is joined by Michael Horton to clarify how union with Christ relates to justification.
