1:7 The fellowservant - Of Paul and Timotheus.


People's Bible Notes for Colossians 1:7


Col 1:7 As ye also learned of Epaphras. "Also" in the Common Version is not found in the best MSS. They had learned of the gospel, its truth, its hope, and fruit from Epaphras, who probably planted the church under Paul's direction. Where he was converted we are not informed, but possibly at Ephesus, the capital of the province, during Paul's stay of three years there. Some have held that he is the same as the Epaphroditus of Php 2:25; 4:18, but this is not probable. He is highly commended here and in Col 4:12 and in the latter place is identified with the Colossian church.

    Felicia: Have you been Born-again? Washed by His Blood? Just 3Things to do:Read His Word always,no other books- commentaries,no tv-internet, movies. Tell others what He has done and how they can be Saved by The Blood of The Lamb. Go to a Church that believes the same. The more you read and Hear His Word tell others everyday,with Prayer: The more you receive. --If only now-n-than: years to never.
