Product Description

Come and hear a wonderful story of evangelism, church planting and Christian growth. Colossians was a letter, which would have first been read by Tychicus in Philemon's house in Colossae. People who were to read that letter had been converted as a result of Paul's teaching in Ephesus (Acts 19). As they read they are about to understand better the reality of life in Christ and reading it years later we can understand better too.



About the Focus on the Bible series:

The Focus on the Bible series is primarily geared toward those laity who wish to improve their understanding of Scripture with a detailed study of the text. To this end, the authors in this series focus on the meaning of the text in its original context without expounding on technicalities. Authors bring the text to life for the modern reader by examining the biblical text phrase-by-phrase, and sometimes word-by-word in English. To enhance study, a series of guided text-centered study questions are provided at the end of each section.

Publisher's Description

Come and hear a wonderful story of evangelism, church planting and Christian growth. Colossians was a letter, which would have first been read by Tychicus in Philemon's house in Colossae. People who were to read that letter had been converted as a result of Paul's teaching in Ephesus (Acts 19). As they read they are about to understand better the reality of life in Christ and reading it years later we can understand better too.
You will see the power of fellowship at work as a formerly useless slave and his master are brought together to work together as brothers in the Lord.

Endorsements

Honest readers will be challenged by the gospel of God's gracious saving plan for the world, the place of the Lord Jesus within it, and how those who have been united with Christ are to live. May the God who is the Author of these two powerful letters use John's rich exposition to challenge and encourage us in the twenty-first century.
Peter O'Brien
Emeritus Faculty Member, Moore Theological College, Sydney

This commentary by John Woodhouse is a rich source of biblical insight on the texts of Colossians and Philemon. This volume is a great resource for the pastor as he prepares to feed his flock, but it is equally helpful for students of the Bible who desire to understand better these magnificent letters. Maybe even more importantly, the text reflects the author's own love for the Savior. I can gladly commend it.
Bill Cook
Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
