Two crises in Colosse cause visitors to be sent to the Apostle Paul. First, an old friend brings news that false teachers are laying down rules and boasting of secret kwledge beyond the gospel. Then, a runaway slave begs Paul to ask his Christian master for mercy. The letters Paul writes to handle these dilemmas remain foundational for understanding Christ and His work in us. The 11 sessions of this Bible study on the books of Colossians and Philemon examine how Paul exalted Christ and affirmed a truly Christian lifestyle. If using in a group, personal study is needed between meetings.
