Colossians, A Video Study
This letter to the Colossians reminds Christians that they are “God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved” (3:12). It proclaims the deity of Jesus using some of the loftiest language in all the New Testament to help the church know God in his greatness and glory. Jesus makes believers alive to God and sets them on the path to right living. This proper view of Christ serves as the antidote for heresy and a building block for Christian life and doctrine both then and now.
Colossians, A Video Study features scholar David E. Garland teaching through the book of Colossians in 10 engaging and challenging lessons. A companion to Garland’s Colossians, Philemon in the NIV Application Commentary series, these lessons explore the links between the Bible and our own times that reveal the letter’s enduring relevance for our twenty-first-century lives.
Colossians, A Video Study is part of the Zondervan Beyond the Basics Video Series, which is dedicated to bringing expert teaching from the world's best biblical scholars and theologians directly to interested learners.
