Colossians is the Book of the Glory of Christ. A sister-book to Ephesians, the eternal plan of God is seen from the perspective of the eternal Son of God. Like Ephesians, the latter half of Colossians consists of a series of practical applications for Believers in the Dispensation of the Church.
“To the Colossians” is named for the recipients of this prison epistle.
The Apostle Paul is the primary author, with the scribal assistance and courier service of Timothy.
