Context & Nuance
Nathan Shobe's speaks on how important context is in understanding. By looking at Colossians, we see how Paul contextually makes a case for Christ and our full redemption by using imagery and language of the age. The redemption of the world has been completed through the finished work of the cross Jesus. It is only in the uniting of people that you may not agree or feel uncomfortable with, are the ones we need to lock arms and be with - because it is in that tension that we grow and do not get stuck in comfortable truth.
