Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the cause of the Colossians letters. It examines the specific motives that have led to the emergence of Colossians letters. The fictional character of pseudepigraphic letters prevents direct transmission of the situation shown in the letter to the historical reality. It was formulated that the Colossians letters was written after the death of Paul. Although more than half of all New Testament writings dealing with the life and work of Paul, his death is not recorded in the New Testament. The presentation of Paul contains some hints of the New Testament from the acquaintances. The chapter discusses the struggle and suffering of Paul. It aims to interpret the death of Paul theologically. The chapter finally discusses the situation of specific local church in Colossae. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Colossae; Colossians letters; New Testament writings; pseudepigraphic letters
