Colossians 1

Summary: again Paul sets the stage, showing the context of where God, Jesus, himself, and his audience stand in relation to one another. God is the creator, Jesus is his only son, Paul and his assistants are merely teachers, and his audience is a batch of new believers.

Response: it feels good to get back into the swing of things, and to see Paul prepare his pupils beforehand, like a teacher preparing lessons. It is my hope that I can be instructed and figure out how to instruct even better.
