Colossians: Experiencing the Preeminence of Christ

A Bible Study 

Introduction

We live in a world with a religion to meet every diverse mood. Christians today are no different from those of ancient Colossae who struggled with Jewish legalism mixed with Eastern philosophies.

In his profound, scholarly letter focusing on the prevailing theme of the preeminence of Christ, Paul warned the Colossians of their heretical practices. In this short but spiritually stimulating letter, Paul made the case for the supremacy of Christ in all things in heaven and on earth. He knew that if the people could grasp even a glimpse of the fullness of Christ, they would affirm their true identity and stop looking elsewhere for spiritual fulfillment.

Called by many scholars the “most profound letter Paul every wrote,” the Book of Colossians warrants our careful, faithful study. In participating in this 12-lesson study, not only can we learn what it means to experience Jesus’ preeminence, we can strive towards becoming the complete persons God intends us to be
