Join Dr. Constantine Campbell as he explores the theology and themes of Colossians and Philemon. Discover the implications of the Christ hymn in Col 1:15–20, which Dr. Campbell calls “the most profound christological statement in the New Testament.” See how Paul addresses the “Colossian heresy,” as well as social and ethical issues like slavery and reconciliation. Through Dr. Campbell’s verse by verse commentary and engaging exposition you’ll gain a deeper understanding of how Christians are called to live and what spiritual maturity looks like.
