Colossians 2:20-23 Last week, we briefly examined the headship motif mentioned by Paul in vs. 19. Paul used this headship/body image because the head, in Greco-Roman culture, was the source of life for the body. Now Paul expounds much more thoroughly on the implications of the life and death of the Christian, as illustrated by the headship of Christ, and states that we are now dead in ways we used to be alive, and we are now alive in ways we used to be dead. The past few weeks, we have considered three of the four Pauline prohibitions in ch. 2. Today we will consider the final prohibition.
