The book of Colossians was written during Paul's first imprisonment in Rome. It was during this same imprisonment that Paul wrote the epistles of Ephesians, Philippians, and Philemon. Ephesians and Colossians are parallel or "sister" books. They are two of the most concentrated epistles because of the opposition of human philosophy challenging the Colossian church. Paul wrote to the saints at Colosse because the false religion of Gnosticism had entered the church. He also wanted to firmly establish his support of Epaphras as pastor and head of the local church.
Colossians Study Notes is a verse-by-verse teaching of the book of Colossians from the personal study notes of Bob Yandian dealing with human philosophy and false religion and God's approach to eliminating them from the church.
