A helpful study companion
Colossians places Jesus above all and over all. It is a book that emphasizes Christ as supreme. Although it is a short book in the New Testament, it packs a punch of rich theology & robust application to the life of a disciple.
There are hundreds of commentaries on Colossians and here is another one…but don’t be fooled into thinking this will get lost in the mix. Brian Hedges’ work is both pastoral and practical. The aim that Hedges takes is to simply echo the supremacy of Christ and the true Gospel that He embodied.
The Gospel is continuously attacked by false teaching and perverted varieties of the Gospel that all stem from man’s pride. But in Colossians we know that Paul regarded Jesus as supreme and His message as ultimate. Therefore, Hedges just simply echoes what Paul teaches and his commentary is a great aid to the student of the Word. The format that Hedges takes is verse-by-verse so that no word is left behind.
You’ll find this to be a joy to read & study as you walk through Colossians for devotion or for teaching. Let’s hope there is more to come from Brian Hedges in regards to commentaries.
