Colossians Bible Study

The Preeminence of Christ

Zach Mabry wrote this Colossians study for our SWO Summer Staff, and we wanted to make it available to everyone! After all, where is a better place to start studying God’s Word than Colossians? It’s a short letter by Paul, and it’s all about Jesus and his authority over all things (preeminence).

The first step in Christian growth is the study of God’s Word. Remember that God has given us His Word, not for some kind of academic discipline, but so we can know Him better through it. So, grab a couple of friends and invite them to join your journey through Paul’s letter to the Colossian church.
