{Week 2} Supremacy of Christ~ Colossians 1:15-23

 

 

Welcome back to week 2 of our 8 week study on the book of Colossians!!! I’m so excited you are joining us!

This week we will be studying the supremacy of Christ….how Jesus is not only equal to God, but Jesus is God.

In Colossians 1:15-23 Paul is refuting some of the false teachings that had begun in that church.

“The false teacher in Colossae, like the false teachers of our own day, would not deny the importance of Jesus Christ. They would simply dethrone Him, giving Him prominence but not preeminence. In their philosophy, Jesus Christ was but one of many “emanations” that proceeded from God and through which men could reach God. It was this claim that Paul refuted in this section.”- Warren W. Wiersbe

Today I invite you to open your Bibles with me as I go through Colossians 1:15-23.

    Thank you angela, I am writing from Italy and I’va just joined the Colossians Stud.

    I really appreciated your video and your explanations… I have never thouhgt of an explanation so simple and clear of the duality of Jesus and of the Trinityas you done with the two and after three different state of the water. :-) and now I fully understand this complicated way God may express Himself…
    I have just done the first step of your SOAP study but it fully hit me that Jesus has already give us our salvstion by the blood of his cross… he ask us only to be still in our faith and to have hope.
    ”Do not fear, only believe”

    Thank for helping to to know and understand… and to be still.
    :-)

    Cheers

    Maddalena
