Finally, for the final...
Hi I'm Paul, and you're the Colossians. Hello!
Thanks to God for you.
Christ trumps other heavenly powers and so called spiritual knowledge
(here’s a hymn to prove it: Christ is the image of the invisible God...)
I’m taking care of the suffering, finishing all that's left to suffer for Christ.
And I’m making known the mystery—Christ in you Gentiles!
Don’t buy the Jewish philosophy:
--food laws aren’t the ticket
--Sabbath is not your concern
--worship with angels, big deal we have Christ
--ascetic, earthly thinking
You've disconnected from the head, Christ.
So live accordingly.
Put to death the things of earth
Put off this list of bad things; put on this list of good things.
Do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus

A whole lot of greetings
