Event Title

P-27 Nailed to the Cross: Colossians 2:14 as a Means for Inclusive Church Ministry

Start Date

3-2-2018 2:30 PM

Description

I suggest Col. 2:11 is directly parallel to 2:14, which points to an integrated church, fully forgiven and empowered through Christ, and not to a Pauline negation of Torah observance. The study begins broadly with intra-textual considerations in Col. 1:15-20 and 2:10-15, followed by analysis of Col. 2:10-15 and an exegetical comparison between 2:11 and 14. Then applicable insights that impact the Christian community today are explored. I used multiple hermeneutical methods, namely: logical, semantical, syntactical/exegetical, and theological interpretation. My study demonstrates the potential for strong exegesis balanced with a strong theology to benefit church praxis.
