New Series: Colossians

April 22, 2022  |  wwilliams

1For by  him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. (Colossians 1:16)

Sunday April 27th will mark the beginning of a new sermon series in the book of Colossians. Our hope is this series, which will be in for most of the summer, will help us as a church to further deepen our affections for Christ and His Lordship over every aspect of creation.

Here are some interesting facts about the book of Colossians:

  • Colossians is one of only two of Paul’s epistles written to a church that he had never previously visited
  • The letter was probably written c. a.d. 62. Paul wrote it at roughly the same time that he wrote Philemon and Ephesians
  • Over four-fifths of the verses here in Colossians are repeated in Ephesians with some slight variations
  • Though the epistle to the Colossians is very important, the city of Colossae itself was by far the least important city to which Paul had ever sent a letter, and afterward, the church disappeared from Church history
  • In Colossians, Paul dealt with many forms of false teaching and harmful doctrines, including legalism, mysticism, asceticism, and Gnosticism.
