The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Colossians

New Testament: Student Study guide, (2003), 139–140


Paul Counsels the Colossians

Like the epistle to the Philippians, Paul wrote this epistle to the Colossians while he was imprisoned in Rome. The Colossians were members of the Church in the city of Colosse. A Colossian named Epaphras visited Paul in Rome to ask for advice on how to deal with the serious problem of false teachers spreading corrupt doctrines among the Saints. This epistle is Paul’s counsel to Epaphras and the other Colossians.
