Christ is All

Christ Is All
—Ten studies in Colossians

This is one approach to a topical outline of Colossians, based on the principle of fullness or “allness” which Paul applies to most of his statements in the letter. Paul is trying to rescue from the false teachers this great principle: "Christ is all and in all" (Colossians 3:11).
