Verse of the Day (July 16, 2020)

Verse of the Day (July 16, 2020) #BMSeminary – {For} verifies the assertion in verse 8 that the heretics’ “philosophy” is in accord with the tradition of men and not with Christ or in line with Christian doctrine. This is done by stating that the whole of the divine nature (all the fulness of the Godhead) dwells in Jesus in bodily form. This refutes the Colossian heresy denying the Son’s full deity and that He possessed a body that could die and make atonement for sin. {Ye are complete in him} (or, “you are filled by Him”): Believers have been filled by Jesus with all the spiritual blessings they need; hence, they are “complete” and lacking nothing. This, too, refutes the heresy that denied the sufficiency of Christ and encouraged Christians to look to other spiritual beings for help. Five of these blessings, with which believers have been filled, are listed in verses 11–15. They are: (1) spiritual circumcision, verse 11; (2) being raised from the old life, verse 12; (3) new life, verse 13; (4) the removal of the curse of the law, verse 14; and (5) the conquering of Satan and his demonic forces, verse 15. [KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins]
