The Story of Glory
Colossians Background: Paul never visited Colossae but he sent some of his disciples to encourage this small house church (Epaphras, Tychicus, and Onesimus). In this letter he offers encouragement to believers in Colossae to fortify them for a faith-filled life.
The message of chapter one is a strong statement of the life of believer as one who bears fruit and increases in the knowledge of God. Then he gives a strong statement about the second person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ. He is God’s image!
Then Paul uses the idea of the revealed “mystery” to capture the idea that even Gentiles are a part of God’s redemptive work.
