Entry from US English dictionary
A joint heir.
- If we are children we are heirs as well; heirs of God and coheirs with Christ, sharing his sufferings so as to share his glory.
- When he died on the cross, Jesus brought a whole new reality into the world: the joy of being citizens of heaven and coheirs of the kingdom of God.
