Christ In You

The Hope of Glory

By: Dr. Billy J. Owensby


About the Book

The Book of Colossians is known as one of the Prison Epistles. The authorship is attributed to the Apostle Paul and strong evidence of that in seen within the letter to the church at Colossae. Colossians is one of the shortest of Paul’s letters, yet it is one of the most exciting. Paul most
likely wrote this letter while he was a prisoner in Rome in A.D. 62. Colossians is referred to as the sister Epistle of Ephesians, also a prison Epistle. The evidence of this is seen in the fact that seventy-five verses found in the letter of Colossians are found in the Ephesian letter also.

The verse-by-verse exposition of Colossians and also the book of Philemon will give the serious Bible student a greater understanding of the text and theme of these books. The central theme of Colossians is none other than the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Philemon could be seen as having many themes such as Christian courtesy, Christian brotherhood, forgiveness, the law of love, and the saving power of Jesus Christ. These two short writings of the Apostle Paul will be a great inspiration to all who seek to learn more about Christ In You, the hope of glory.
