Year of Scripture – Colossians

Today’s Reading:
Day 346 – Thursday, December 12: Colossians

Who wrote Colossians? It bears Paul’s name, but did Paul really write it? Good question, and one we may never know the answer to. Scholars will point out some theological differences between Colossians and some of Paul’s other letters. Others will point out a difference in Greek vocabulary and usage that hadn’t been used by Paul before. So did Paul write it, maybe/maybe not. Perhaps if he didn’t one of his “disciples” did, either way, there is still a great message to be told, especially in the words of 3: 12-14:

As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with
compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.
 Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another,
forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you,
so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love,
which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

Can’t get any better than that!

Pastor Bailey
