We are in a series to study through the book of Colossians and the title of our series is Christ Above All.
The epistle to the Colossians was written when Paul was in prison in Rome around 60 AD. The people in Colossae had heard the gospel from Epaphras. Epaphras traveled to Rome and informed Paul of the false teaching, pluralistic religion and pagan secularism which threatened the church.
So, Paul wrote this letter to counteract all these errors by showing that Christ is greater – Christ is supreme – all sufficient – not just part of a philosophy or religion – He is Lord of all. That’s why the theme of Colossians is Christ Above All.
