New Testament Library - Colossians

A Commentary
Product Description

The New Testament Library offers authoritative commentary of every book and major aspect of the New Testament, providing fresh translations based on the best available ancient manuscripts, critical portrayals of the historical world in which the books were created, careful attention to their literary design, and a theologically perceptive exposition of the biblical text. C. Clifton Black, M. Eugene Boring, and John T. Carroll are series editors.

The Letter to the Colossians offers great insight into the faith, life, and problems of an early Christian church. Understanding this letter to be one of Paul’s prison epistles but aware of the differences between this and his other writings, Jerry Sumney shows how the church struggled with expressing its new faith in the diverse settings of the Greco-Roman world. Paying special attention to the ways of forgiveness and salvation through the power of Christ, this fine commentary offers compelling new insights into Colossians’ expansive Christology and expectant eschatology.

Jerry L. Sumney is Professor of Biblical Studies at Lexington Theological Seminary in Lexington, Kentucky. He is the author of Philippians: A Greek Student’s Intermediate Reader; Identifying Paul’s Opponents: The Question of Method in 2 Corinthians; and Servants of Satan, False Brothers, and Other Opponents of Paul. With Larry Paul Jones, he authored Preaching Apocalyptic Texts.
