The gospel, which appears to be a little secular story, is truly a mystery to be known only by revelation. In the 16th chapter of John we are told: "I came out from the father and came into the world. Again I leave the world and I return to the father." In these four short phrases we find the pre-existence of Christ, his incarnation, his death, and his ascension. I could put this in the first person, plural sense and say: "We came out from the father" for we are told in the first chapter of Ephesians: "He chose us in him before the foundation of the world." So all of us were chosen in him. That is why I can say, "We came out from the father and came into the world. Again we are leaving the world and are going to the father."
