Exploring the Word of God: Reading Through Colossians and Philemon
by Michael Morrison
In this lay-level commentary, Michael Morrison explores the details of Paul's letter to the Colossians and to Philemon. In Colossians, Paul insists that Christ is fully sufficient for our salvation; we do not need to add any extra knowledge or rules to qualify for the kingdom. In his letter to Philemon, Paul asks Philemon to treat a slave as a brother, and to send him to help Paul.
