in which: Chapter 2:3 does not exhibit a satisfactory text [in the RV], though there are added and indefensible words in the text which the Authorized Version followed. It is very doubtful whether "and of Christ" should stand any more than "and of the Father," the importance of which omission would be that the version would run "in which." That is, all these treasures are in the mystery. (Bible Treasury 14:14)
