In Colossians three Rav Shaul begins his application of how to live the ideas he taught in the first two chapters. Jonathan continues the discussion through the book and how we might live the same ideals today.
Jonathan finishes Colossians chapter 2 with a look at the heart of the book, and why Shaul took time to write the community he had never met. With the rise of deception in our world we must guard truth, and protect it as precious if we are to grow in the Messiah.
Jonathan continues in Colossians 1 and gets into the heart of what the book is about. Who is this Yeshua, is He Elohim, and angel, human, or something else. This question has persisted for the last 2000 years, and its answer will underpin the rest of a person’s theology. Jonathan examine’s Rav Shaul’s (Paul’s) answer and how it impacts out lives today.
Jonathan looks at the love of the believers at Colossae and how it reflects our growth in Messiah. How do we show love? How are we to be unified? We search out these questions through continuing in the book of Colossians.
Jonathan begins a study through the book of Colossians. This week’s focus is on verse 1 and the phrase, “by the will of Elohim.” What is His will, how do we do it? Using passages from 1st & 2nd Timothy, Jonathan searches out one aspect of this word.
