The Letters to the PHILIPPIANS, COLOSSIANS, & PHILEMON

This course is a study of Paul's Letters to the saints at Philippi and Colossae and his brief note to Philemon. It explains the general meaning of each letter in a simple and understandable manner.

In the letter to the Philippians, Paul thanks the believers for their financial support and takes the opportunity to counsel them on humility and unity. This personal and affectionate letter is full of practical exhortations that are relevant for us today.

In Colossae, the believers were in danger of introducing ideas from outside of Christianity, even to the point of changing their understanding of Jesus Christ and the basis for their salvation. Paul challenges these ideas and presents the complete supremacy and sufficiency of Christ.

The letter to Philemon is a private letter that concerns the return of a slave called Onesimus to Philemon. It illustrates the change in one’s life brought about by salvation in Christ.
