Colossians presents a picture of Christ who is ‘the firstborn over all creation’ and has disarmed and triumphed over the powers and authorities. The letter also appeals to its readers to seek humble maturity, a maturity not possible apart from the person and work of Jesus Christ. N. T Wright’s stated goal is to “to give the text back to the reader uncluttered by a mass of glosses.” In Philemon, Paul makes a personal appeal to a fellow believer to receive a runaway slave, Onesimus, in love and forgiveness. For Wright, it is “an acted parable of the gospel itself.” The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series. The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world’s most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament. These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation.


Nicholas Tom Wright, commonly known as N. T. Wright or Tom Wright, is the bishop of Durham and an important scholar of the New Testament. He has researched, taught, and lectured on the New Testament at McGill, Oxford, and Cambridge Universities.
