  Colossians

Abbreviation: Col.
New Testament Book 12.
Bible Book 51. 
4 Chapters.
Section: Letters.
Authored by Paul and Timothy. Probably written by Paul at Rome during his 1st imprisionment there. Suggested date being a wide range of 57AD to 62AD. Written to the believers in Colossae, a city in the Lycus Valley which is modern day South-West Turkey. A major object of the letter, it seems, was to counteract certain false teaching that had arisen within the church of Colosse. These teachings are sometimes referred to as the Colossian heresy. The false teaching appears to have been teaching that attempted to combine the doctrines of Eastern mysticism and asceticism with Christianity, thereby promising believers enjoyment of a higher spiritual life and a deeper insight into the world of spirits. Paul argues against such teaching, showing that in Christ they had all things. Paul commands the saints to "let no one judge you...but the body of Christ," - that is, the church itself. He particularly warns the Colossians against being drawn away from Christ "in whom dwelt all the fullness of the deity" (2:9), and who is the head of all spiritual powers. Christ, Paul reminds them, is the head of the body of which they are members; and if they are truly united to him, what further need do they have? In chapters 3 and 4 Paul writes practically, teaching about various duties that naturally flow from the doctrines he has expounded. The Colossians are exhorted to mind things that are above (Colossians 3:1-4), to mortify every evil principle of their nature, and to put on the new man (Colossians 3:5-14). Many special duties of the Christian life are also insisted upon as the fitting evidence of the Christian character.
