“Wives be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.” (Col. 3:18) That’s probably the most quoted verse in Colossians. The second one is: “Children, obey your parents in everything, for this is your acceptable duty in the Lord.” (Col. 3:20) There are other instructions to husbands to love their wives and to parents to not provoke their children but those verses do not receive as much attention. Still, there is more to Colossians than the “household codes” as biblical scholars name them. From the great “Christ hymn” to the vivid description of new life in Jesus, this letter from the Apostle Paul has much to offer us as we seek to live faithfully today. Through two classes, we will read through the four brief chapters of this book as we gain practical wisdom for ourselves and our families. Child care is available. Must register separately for child care.
