Key People: Paul, Timothy, Church at Colosse
Summary: This letter provides the fullest presentation of Jesus Christ and His work on earth: He is the image of the invisible God; He is the Lord and Creator of all things, both visible and invisible; He is the Head of the church; and He is supreme above all things. And believers who are in Him have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of sins. Believers who stay close to Jesus and walk in the Spirit can triumph over the enemy. Because of Jesus Christ, believers can—and should—seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
About Jesus: Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. Through His death on the cross, sinners can be reconciled to God.
