The book is an exposition on the theme, “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). Dealing with Colossian heresy, Paul called their teachings as vain deceit based on human tradition which denied Christ’s sufficiency and belittled the Christian hope in His finished work on the cross. People were stealing the hearts and minds of those who are believed to focus on worldly traditions. The book unveils some of the heretic comments and teachings in our day which cloud our hope of glory.
What is this Christian hope of glory? What must we do to keep hold of this glory? Many Christians have gone back to their old ways due to unanswered heretic questions posed against their faith in Christ. This is the reason this book welcomes you to journey through the entire book of Colossians. The book is giving hope to those in despair, not to give up but to hold fast to that which is good – quod bonum est tenete.
The book brings out the central theme of the entire letter to the church in Colossae which was aimed to resist the heretic teachings and further bring clarity to the supremacy of Christ – the foundation of our faith. The book will bring you to a deeper understanding of the theme; Christ in you, the hope of glory as we grasp the truth on the sufficiency of Christ to bring all people to the expected glorification. Spend time with this book as it deepens your anchor in Christ Jesus and receive the truth of the Christian God.
