Product Description

Colossians and Philemon have traditionally been overshadowed by other New Testament texts thought to express Pauline theology more clearly. In this notable commentary, however, Marianne Meye Thompson shows how these two epistles provide a unique formulation of the gospel in terms of creation and reconciliation rather than justification by faith.

In Colossians she finds an overarching narrative of the Bible's grand creation-redemption story and an important emphasis on the relationship between creation and Christology, while her exploration of Philemon casts brighter light on the significance of Paul's familial metaphors for the church and the meaning of new humanity in Christ. Throughout her work on these two epistles, Thompson continually connects her insights to theological concerns, making this volume an excellent addition to the Two Horizons series.

Seeking to bridge the existing gap between biblical studies and systematic theology, The Two Horizons New Testament Commentary series offers section-by-section exegesis of the New Testament texts in close conversation with theological concerns. Written by respected scholars, the THNTC volumes aim to help pastors, teachers, and students engage in deliberately theological interpretation of Scripture.

Editorial Reviews

Journal for the Study of the New Testament
"Exceptionally fine work on both Colossians and Philemon, combining both detailed exegesis and illuminating theological reflection on the text. . . This impressive volume makes an excellent contribution to understanding both these Pauline letters."

Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
"[Thompson] stirs up a fresh cauldron of spell-binding theological thoughts for today's readers. . . An excellent work well suited for students, pastors, and other Christian leaders."

Markus Bockmuehl
— Cambridge University
"Marianne Meye Thompson's major new work on Colossians and Philemon bears all the hallmarks of her Johannine theological acumen, bringing the epistles' spiritual dynamism to life with her characteristic combination of learning and lightness of touch. This is an exemplary Two Horizons commentary. . . An impressive, timely contribution to the interpretation of these two New Testament letters."
