Here are Barclay's offerings on these important New Testament texts. Written by Paul while in prison in Rome, the letter to the Philippians is concerned with the theological identification of Jesus both as God and as human. The Letter to the Colossians combat heretical Gnostic teachings, declaring that God created the world through Jesus Christ, God's own Son. The two letters to the Thessalonians show the apostle dealing with day-to-day problems of a strategic young city church. Though written to the faithful in years gone by, Paul's words come to life for readers today through Barclay's own translation and enlightening commentary.
