Colossians Chapter 4

Colossians 4:3

(See Scofield) - (Mat 13:11).

Colossians 4:6

col 4:6


Grace (imparted). (Th2 1:12); (Rom 6:1); (Pe2 3:18).

Colossians 4:12

col 4:12


A touching illustration of priestly service,

(See Scofield) - (Pe1 2:9),

as distinguished from ministry of gift. Shut up in prison, no longer able to preach, Epaphras was still, equally with all believers, a priest. No prison could keep him from the throne of grace, so he gave himself wholly to the priestly work of intercession.


(See Scofield) - (Mat 5:48).
