Colossians 2:8-9

19Nov09

It’s time to reopen an old series in an effort to finish what I started back in May, i.e. translating through Colossians. I made it to 2:7. Not a great showing.

But the Lord is patient, so I’ll pick up where I left off and start at 2:8.

Care to read through it with me?

8 βλέπετε μή τις ὑμᾶς ἔσται ὁ συλαγωγῶν διὰ τῆς φιλοσοφίας καὶ κενῆς ἀπάτης κατὰ τὴν παράδοσιν τῶν ἀνθρώπων, κατὰ τὰ στοιχεῖα τοῦ κόσμου καὶ οὐ κατὰ Χριστόν• 9 ὅτι ἐν αὐτῷ κατοικεῖ πᾶν τὸ πλήρωμα τῆς θεότητος σωματικῶς,

Translation:

8 See that no one carries you off into captivity through philosophy and empty deception according to human tradition, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in him all the fullness of deity dwells bodily.

Outrageous? Yes, but I believe it.

  1. Adam, this is a great encouragment! Thanks for your example of sticktoitiveness, of finishing what you started. I’m going to try to jump in on this with you

      The water’s warm! But be warned: our Greek prof might be watching.
