True Bible Study - Colossians and Philemon
The church at Colossae was under attack from false teachers who were denigrating the deity of Jesus; they were teaching that He was not actually God.
Colossians and Philemon Bible Study
Though Paul had never been to the church itself, he addressed these issues head-on. The nature of Jesus Christ as Creator and Redeemer was nonnegotiable, so Paul wrote to them that he might bring his wisdom to bear on this difficult and trying situation.
It was critical to him that this church know God in His greatness and glory, rather than in the deficient view given them by the false teachers Colossians ; —2. Paul presented Christ as the center of the universe, not only as the active Creator but also as the recipient of creation—in His taking on of human flesh. Christ was and is the visible image of the invisible God, containing within Himself the fullness of Deity Colossians Because of His divine nature, Jesus is sovereign, above all things with an authority given Him by the Father.
As such, Jesus is also Head over the church. He has reconciled all things to Himself through His death on the cross, making believers alive to God and setting them on the path to right living.
This proper view of Christ served as the antidote for the Colossian heresy as well as a building block for Christian life and doctrine both then and now. Your view of Jesus Christ will impact every area of your life. Search by title, catalog stock , author, isbn, etc. Black Friday Sale. This Week's Specials:.
