As Paul traveled throughout the Roman Empire preaching the gospel, teaching new converts, and establishing churches, he developed close realtionships. To keep in touch with these friends and to instruct them further in truth, he wrote letters. Three of these epistles - Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon - are an interesting collection. In Philippians, Paul reveals his fervent desire to know Christ; in Colossians, he shows that Christ is preeminent over all; and in Philemon, he makes an appeal for a runaway slave who became a Christian. As you study these epistles that come from the heart of Paul, may you be encouraged to know the Christ whom Paul knew.About the Series
