Paul's letter to the Colossians reveals the greatness of Jesus Christ by dealing with such important subjects as the fact that he is fully God, that he has authority over principalities and powers, and that those who believe in him are complete and wonderfully at liberty. It also touches powerfully and relevantly on practical Christian living in the home and work place. Colossians is a letter for today as it reveals to us the historical Jesus that so many people try to find without success in extra-biblical sources.
