9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By rodboomboom HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on July 28, 2003
Format: Hardcover
When one gets into the Book of Colossians one finds that its themes are so major and vital and defended and emphasized in this important Biblical book.
Besides of course all revolving around Christology, Deterding's commentary sees further the vital doctrines of creation and eschatology. Thus, this commentary will certainly serve a major place in the life of Christ's church.
The false teaching that Paul exposes and condemns in this letter to the church at Colossae is herein expounded upon by Deterding's fine exegesis. He sees one of the greater benefits of this letter as Paul's contribution to the relationship between Christology and cosmology. He in the author's view: "Colossians expounds upon the relationship of Jesus Christ to the created order, for the letter presents Christ as both Creator and Reconciler of the universe."
Further, this work ackowledges that Colossians presents serious textual problems. Thus, a proper commentary will treat this issue carefully and thoughtfully, as this volume certainly does.
The structure of this Commentary Series is delightful to use: Translation from the Original language, followed by Textual Notes which address the formal issues as the textual criticism and other exegetical highlights; followed by the Commentary section which seeks to provide a running interpretive description of what the Lord of the church wants to communicate through Paul; finally, various excursus supplement the rest of this commentary with well done essays on such as "Pauline Anthropology, The Powers," etc.
This commentary addresses the heresy in the Colossians with the resounding clear message of Christ for the Colossians and all people in the reconciliation of the cross.
