Fullness and freedom--two aspects of Christian life that we all want to share. Paul wrote about them at length (and depth) in his letter to the Christians at Colossae, where certain new teachers were proclaiming that "mere Christianity" is not enough. There is, they suggested, a fuller experience, a greater liberation, than they had so far enjoyed. But Paul was adamant: all God's fullness is in Christ alone, and only through his complete work are we set free.These are the great objective truths of the faith that Dick Lucas highlights in his exposition, enabling us to see both the riches that are ours in Christ and the irrelevance--even blasphemy--of all would-be improvements on what God has done.ContentsGeneral PrefaceAuthor's prefaceChief AbbreviationsLetter to the ColossiansBut why did he write?--1:1-2True Christians and the true gospel--1:3-8Be filled for this--1:9-14Christ, supreme Lord and sufficient Saviour--1:15-20Stable and steadfast--1:21-23Apostolic ministry--1:24-29Apostolic concerns--2:1-5This way ahead--2:6-7No return to slavery--2:8-15Shadows and substance--2:16-17Dealing with robbers--2:18-19Why submit?--2:20-23The Christian and Christ--3:1-8The Christian and the local church--3:9-17The Christian at home--3:18-21The Christian at work--3:22-4:1The Christian and the outsider--4:2-6Final greetings and instructions--4:7-18Letter to PhilemonFrom slavery to freedom--1-25
