Even though Paul did not have the same kind of personal relationship with the congregation in Colossae, he enjoyed important partnerships with leaders of these Christians. During Paul’s first incarceration in Rome, he got wind of issues threatening the work of these leaders and the unity of their flock. Participants in this course will work through a close read of Paul’s gorgeous rhetoric, deep theology, and helpful missiology in this letter. The way Paul addresses the threats of the opponents attacking the Colossians makes this letter timely.
