Christ Is All a Study on the Book of Colossians by Sara Branstetter Summary
Colossians is one of Paul's final letters offering wisdom and instruction to the first century church at a time of extreme persecution. It is a wonderful, well-developed narrative that offers truth and guidance to where followers of Christ find themselves today in society and in culture. If believers only had access to the book of Colossians, it would be more than enough for them to come to know Jesus as Lord and live victoriously in Christ.

Colossians: The Gospel, the Church, and the New Humanity in Christ is a Bible study guide that offers serious treatment of Paul’s letter for believers who seek a wider understanding of how the gospel applies not only to them personally, but also to the world around them.

He reinterprets the Old Testament in light of the revelation of God given in his beloved Son, showing how Jesus fulfils both the Scripture and God’s plan for his creation.

The new commentaries continue this tradition. All new evidence now available is incorporated and new methods of study are applied. The authors are of the highest international standing.

Colossians & Philemon by N.A Summary
False Teachers and a Runaway Slave Two crises in Colosse compel the Apostle Paul to write to the believers there, sharing his wisdom while in prison. First, Paul responds to false teachers who were belittling Christ, laying down rules, and boasting of secret knowledge. Then, Paul appeals to an individual believer, challenging him to imitate Christ by showing mercy to his slave who had run away. Paul’s two letters exalt Christ and affirm a truly Christian life, and they remain foundational for understanding Christ and His work in us.

A Study of Colossians by Charlotte Travis Summary
How does this affect the Kingdom of God? Is it born of God? Where is my focus? These are some questions we’ll begin to filter our lives through as we grow in our understanding of what it means to have an eternal mindset. When we come to Christ, we set our own agendas aside, and become spiritually alive to seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness above all else. That’s where true joy is found.
