Bible Commentary for Colossians 4:18

Wesley's Notes for Colossians 4:18


4:16 The epistle from Laodicea - Not to Laodicea. Perhaps some letter had been written to St. Paul from thence.

4:17 And say to Archippus - One of the pastors of that church. Take heed - It is the duty of the flock to try them that say they are apostles to reject the false, and to warn, as well as to receive, the real. The ministry - Not a lordship, but a service; a laborious and painful work; an obligation to do and suffer all things; to be the least, and the servant, of all. In the Lord - Christ by whom, and for whose sake, we receive the various gifts of the Holy Spirit.


People's Bible Notes for Colossians 4:18


Col 4:18 The salutation by the hand of me Paul. Paul dictated his epistles to an amanuensis (Ro 16:22), but was wont to add a salutation in his own hand (Ga 6:11 2Th 3:17 1Co 16:21). Remember my bonds. Three times this chapter he alludes to his chains, in Col 4:3,10,18. The thought is, "Be willing to suffer for the gospel even as I do".
