Paul wrote several letters while incarcerated in Rome prior to his death. Three of them were written to churches and reflect Paul’s heart of love and care for his friends and the churches they attended.

In Ephesians, Paul’s concern is that the church would understand the great doctrines of the faith, and live out the implications of that doctrine at home, work and church.

In Colossians, Paul deals with heresy that endangered the very existence of the church by undermining the gospel. Paul counters that heresy with biblical theology, especially focused on the deity of Christ.

Men, we need this study. We face the same issues that the church in Paul’s day faced. We need to know how to live out our faith in the real-life situations we encounter every day. We need to know how to find true joy, even in the midst of trial and testing. And we need to understand the gospel so clearly and know Christ so intimately that we can instantly spot the counterfeits that our culture presents. Join us as we study and pray our way through Paul’s prison letters.
