Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the intention of Colossians letters. It describes some booms characterized as "focal point" or "crux" of the letter. The theology of Colossians is often understood as a response to received and reconstructed theology of enemies and adversaries. The chapter discusses the theological concepts in the Colossians letters. Major difference between Colossians and Paul's letters is the transformation of eschatological imagination and language in spheres-like thinking. The Christology undoubtedly plays important role in writing the Colossians letters. This chapter examines the ethical designs in the Colossians letters. The theological idea of the Colossians letters is already affected by the transfer of believers in the divine sphere. The comparison between the Colossians and Paul's letters reveals that the baptism is not spoken directly in Colossians letters. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: baptism; Christology; Colossians letters; divine sphere; ethical designs; Paul's letters; theological concepts
