Colossians 1:1 (LEB)
Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus through the will of God...
A man named Paul
who describes himself as
an Apostle of Christ Jesus—
wrote this letter.
An apostle is a messenger—
Someone sent
by another person
to represent that person
in official business.
This man
named Paul
was a representative

who ever lived on this earth.

Paul had a special commission

to be a messenger of Christ.
Now
this man named Paul
is also called

He was once

“The Traditions of the Elders.”
These human traditions
separated the Pharisees
frm the Gentiles;
