3.30.0a Who is Jesus Christ? Is He ‘enough’ for Salvation? Christ Revealed – The Hope Of Glory.

Who is Jesus Christ?

Is He enough for Salvation?

How should

our relationship with Him

affect our daily lives?

Paul’s letter to the Colossians

answers these questions.

The Colossian church was being attacked

by a cult with an early form

of Gnostic doctrine

that challenged the Deity

and the Sufficiency of Christ.

That cult that used an early form

of Gnostic doctrine

that challenged the Deity

and the Sufficiency of Christ,

taught Christ was not enough for Salvation

and that more was needed,

such a religious ritual of some kind,

or ‘purchasing salvation’ with money,

or ‘hoping a FALSE religious ‘church’

might ‘help’, etc., etc., etc.

Paul challenged this teaching

by revealing the supremacy of Christ.

Christ is the Image of the Invisible God

and the Fullness of Deity Dwells in Him.

He is the Creator, the Reconciler, the Victor,

the Deliverer, 

the Head of the body—His church!

He is the Firstborn

and the Hope of Glory in the saints.

Colossians teaches that

our relationship with Him

should affect every aspect of our lives

including thoughts, conversations,

friendships, family, and work.

This message is still relevant today

as many are attacking

the Deity and Sufficiency of Christ,

both for Salvation and Sanctification.

Let us stand in awe of the Glory of Christ,

as we study Paul’s letter to the Colossians

with the Bible Teacher’s Guide.

Bible Teacher’s Guide:

Colossians:

Christ Revealed – The Hope Of Glory

….

The Deity of Christ

may be proved from

the Divine Perfections

He Possesses;

“Because in Him

Dwells All The Fullness of The Godhead”,

(Colossians 2:9)

not one perfection of the Divine Nature
excepted; or otherwise, it could not be said,

that All The Fulness of Deity was in Him.
