Colossians introduction

col.jpgGreetings!  Today we begin the Book of Colossians

The Apostle Paul wrote this short letter (4 chapters) around a.d.60-62 while imprisoned in Rome.  It was written to address a heresy that had arisen in the church at Colosse, where Paul had apparently not visited.  The heresy was the teaching that Jesus was not God. 

He also explained how Jesus was completely sufficient for us.  We don’t need anyone or anything else.  The world’s teachings are empty or even counter-productive. 

As he often did, Paul addressed doctrinal issues in the first part of the letter and Christian living in the second part.  He explains how we should live as spouses, parents, children and employees.
