The book of Colossians
was addressed to the people living in Colosse, which is east of Ephesus in Asia
Minor (Eastern Greece).It was written by
Paul while he was in Rome in the early to mid 60 s A.D.The theme of this letter is, sufficiency.
This letter was
written at the same time as Ephesians and Philemon, and were delivered to their
respective destinations by Tychicus and Onesimus.See the references to this in Ephesians and
The Bible never
states that Paul ever visited Colosse, but he did visit nearly every major town
near there, so one would assume that he went through Colosse at some point
during his earlier travels.
Among the errors
mentioned in this letter, the dangers of philosophy, ritual observance, and gnosticism
are mentioned. To lean on earthly views,
preconceived ideas, beliefs of convenience, and especially those that discount
the function of Bible doctrine, is extremely dangerous for ones spiritual life.
