The Doctrine of Justification and Pastoral Ministry (TH705i)

Australian College of Theology Unit

Colossians and Philemon (NT741i)

Australian College of Theology Unit

2019 August Postgraduate Unit

Paul’s letter to the Colossians has long been one of the most loved letters in the New Testament for Christians. It has the wonderful combination of teaching about the greatness of the Lord Jesus as well as application for Christian living, and all within four succinct chapters! The perennial temptation to minimise the person of Christ and find strength for Christian living elsewhere means that this letter continues to teach and challenge us today...
