Colossians Bible Study – Chapter 1 Part 26

The Purpose of Jesus

What is Jesus Christ’s purpose?

 

 

Colossians 1:19 (KJB) For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell.

What do the following have in common? The DaVinci Code, National Treasure, The Truman Show, The Matrix, Pleasantville, Harry Potter, and dozens more. The Apostles John and Paul spoke of the cult of the Gnostics to warn us. Today Hollywood is driving Gnosticism into the minds of people. Do not be deceived Hollywood is battling for our minds. They wish to deceive us and lead us into their knowledge. 2 Corinthians 11:3 (KJB) But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Gnostics loved the word plḗrōma which they used to describe the classes of emanations or angels from God. They said Jesus was one of these lower angels. Paul once again says that in Jesus ALL fullness (plḗrōma) dwelled.
