The Prison Epistles

The Apostle Paul wrote several letters over the years and one of them was sent to the believers who lived in the city of Colosse.

The four letters, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians and Colossians are considered as the Prison Epistles. That is because Paul was under house arrest in Rome when he wrote these letters to the believers in these churches.

Colossians has two main themes:

  1. The Supremacy of Christ in the Church
  2. The Submission to Christ in the Church

This particular letter is written by Paul but his salutation also includes his young protege, Timothy. He begins the letter with “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ” as he addresses it to the saints and faithful brethren.
