The early church dealt with the same threats from false teachers that today's Christians face. Pastor John MacArthur will take you through Colossians and the short letter to Philemon, passage by passage, so that you can better understand Paul's arguments and how they apply to us today.

When Paul learned about the dangers the church was facing, he wrote them a message of warning. Colossians is full of dramatic and powerful passages coupled with rich instructions that defend Christ's deity and His sufficiency to reconcile men to God. Paul's message is a reminder that believers--then and now--are complete in Christ.

Paul also wrote a personal letter to Philemon, a prominent member of the Colossian church. This letter urges Philemon to forgive a former slave and thief and welcome him back as a brother in Christ. Through this real-life situation, Paul teaches Philemon, as well as believers today, the importance of forgiveness.
