He is before all things

7. What is the book about? What is the overall message of the book?

Let me:

remind you of the gospel you have believed,...

warn you about the deadly nature of these lies (which attempt to rob Christ of His glory),…

reveal the mystery and glory of the Lord Jesus Christ in all His supremacy, deity, and all-sufficiency,…

and rouse you to continue to grow in the faith (truth about Christ) …

and live a victorious life together by setting you mind on the things above, where Christ is.

COL 1:13-20
COL 1:28

COL 1:28
We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, …

COL 1:28b
so that we may present every man complete in Christ.

COL 1:28 is an excellent summary of the entire letter.

to warn; to advise someone concerning the dangerous consequences of some happening or action.

to counsel about avoiding or stopping an improper course of conduct.

To proclaim Christ,
to warn about heresies that reject Christ, to teach the glories of Christ,

and to exhort the saints to walk in Christ, setting their minds on Christ;

so that when they appear before Christ, Paul may present each man complete in Christ.
