HFW: Colossians 1:13-20

We're working through a study this summer to celebrate Ephesians 3:10:

So that the manifold wisdom of God might be made known through the church to rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.

This series will run from June 22-August 30, with four readings per week.

This week (4), the first reading is Colossians 1:13-20. After reading this text, answer the following questions, then you can watch the video for a 5:00 thought from the text. (I recommend you work in the text first before watching the video. However, be aware, the video is not intended to be the back of an algebra book--supplying answers to the questions--but rather, is just sharing some thoughts from the text.)

    1. How is the gospel central to this passage?
    2. What does “firstborn of all creation” mean? Does this mean Jesus was created?
    3. What is the purpose and scope of all creation?
    4. What is Christ’s role in the church?
    5. In what does God find pleasure?

[Tried something new with this video. I could not get the audio/video to synch up well, so this style spares you the disconnection between my face and my words.]
