Commentary on Colossians
Daily Study Bible

Comment: Barclay often has rich insights on Greek words and/or historical background. However, be aware that he does hold some unorthodox beliefs, so be a Berean (Acts 17:11) and use this resource wisely.

C H Spurgeon wrote that Bengel's NT commentary "is the Scholar's delight! Bengel condensed more matter into a line than can be extracted from pages of other writers."

John Wesley said of Bengel "I know of no commentator on the Bible equal to Bengel" and referred to him as "The great light of the Christian world."

James Rosscup comments that this collection is "One of the most contributive discussions of Colossians verse by verse, with help on difficulties and evaluation of different interpretations, written by a former professor at Dallas Seminary who is outstanding as an exegete, expositor, and theologian." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)

The Links below are to Dr Johnson's 12 part series on the epistle of Colossians in Bibliotheca Sacra - only the first page of the article is viewable at no charge but note that the annual fee ($50 or $5 monthly - this would give plenty of time to read Johnson's articles) gives access to more than 27 journals - 500 yrs of articles searchable by topic, author or verse see Theological Journal Subscription info

Commentary of Colossians

James Rosscup writes that "Lightfoot is excellent in this 1865 work revised in 1879. His work on Colossians 1:15 (“first-born of every creature”) is especially helpful on a problem text. Many regard the commentary as the best older work on the Greek text." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

Spurgeon writes that Lightfoot is "Deservedly regarded as a standard work. The more instructed student will appreciate it." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

Warren W. Wiersbe on the Expositor's Bible - If you can locate the six-volume edition of the Expositor’s Bible, buy it immediately! It takes up less space than the original fifty-volume set, and not everything in the original set is worth owning. Samuel H. Kellogg on Leviticus is a classic; so is Alexander Maclaren on the Psalms and on Colossians.

Introduction to Colossians - excerpt

How do I apply this? - Your view of Jesus Christ will impact every area of your life. Many today want only practical instruction and helps for living, eschewing “esoteric” topics such as doctrine and theology because they seem to be out of touch with their day-to-day reality. Paul’s view was different. He saw that the christological problems in the Colossian church had practical importance as well. Believers have died with Christ; therefore, we need to die to our sins. We have also been raised with Christ; therefore, we must live well in Him and put on qualities that are motivated by Christian love. And because He is Lord over all, the life of the Christian is a life of submission to Jesus. Are you following after Jesus as you should? Our faith in Jesus Christ should transform the relationships we have in every area of our lives—in our homes, our churches, and our world.

Joseph Parker
Commentary on Colossians
Comments not strictly verse by verse

Excerpt on Colossians 3:5 to give you a "feel" for Parker's style - "Then it is not all contemplation, and sentiment and poetry! This life in Christ means discipline. We have died with Christ that we might obtain the power of Christ, and we are to use that power in destroying the works of the flesh and the influence of the devil. By the power of Christ's resurrection we have been brought to the use of strenuous, penetrating, continual discipline. Discipline has to do for the body what resurrection with Christ has done for the soul. We are raised again with Christ that we may begin, continue, and complete a great fight or sacrifice. We are to practice a large spiritual surgery. It is in vain that we profess to have risen with Christ if the body is to have its own way...."

DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of how to do Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (Heb 5:14-note).
