Paul did not start the Colossian church, nor did he ever visit it. He had heard of their faith and wrote to address heresies that were undermining the foundations of the Christian faith and attacking the person and work of Jesus Christ. Therefore, the main theme of Colossians is the preeminence of Jesus Christ.
Each lesson includes discussion and reflection questions, notes from the commentary Be Complete, Real-Life Aplication Ideas, and helpful Notes for Small Groups.
10 Lessons plus a bonus Review and Summary Lesson.
Reading along in the Be Complete commentary is not necessary but can greatly enhance your understanding of the book.
In a world with a religion to meet every diverse mood, today's Christians are no different from those of ancient Colossae. Fighting Jewish legalism mixed with Eastern philosophies and Gnosticism, Paul called on the Colossian church to stop partaking in the misguided religious practices of their day and to find the one true faith.
In his profound, scholarly letter, Paul warned the people of their heretical practices. His prevailing theme is the preeminence of Christ. Paul knew that if the Colossians grasped even a glimpse of the fullness of God, they would seize hold of their true identity and stop looking elsewhere for spiritual fulfillment.
In this Bible study based on his original commentary on Colossians, seasoned pastor Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe challenges twenty-first-century believers in another age of "religious tolerance." Using Paul's response to heresy as one example, you will learn how to respond diplomatically yet boldly to the falsehood that aims to corrupt our faith today.
