I’m excited to announce that our first study will be on the Book of Colossians. For consultation, I’ll primarily use Douglas Moo’s new commentary in the Pillar series and James Dunn’s commentary in the NIGTC series. For any of those who want to follow along with these studies in lesser detail than what these full length commentaries cover (but with much better scholarship and more detail than your study Bible), an excellent resource would be Craig Blomberg’s From Pentecost to Patmos: An Introduction to Acts through Revelation. This would be useful for study of any books from Acts to Revelation, as the title suggests.
So do whatever you have to do to get pumped and ready to tackle Colossians!
The next post will deal with introductory matters–the who, what, when, why, and where’s of the letter. An outline of the letter will also be provided, which will help determine our blog schedule. Hope that you will be able to join in on the dialogue.
