I noticed that I had a very long list for chapter 1 (20+ things), medium-sized lists for chapters 2 and 3 (about 15 each), and a very short list for chapter 4 (only 4 things). This tells me that we will probably learn the most about Christ in the beginning parts of the book and other themes/people will be emphasized at the end of the book. This is something to tuck away as we move forward in our study.
Again, I morphed my lists into a few key points:
While there is much more to learn about Jesus through the book of Colossians, this short list is certainly a head start!
This list will reveal the theme of the book and prepare us to move forward.
Look for repeated words (like "gospel" and "pray/prayer") or ideas (being dead and made alive) to get started.
To my readers: Thank you so much for joining me in this study! Don't be afraid to leave comments with any questions or thoughts as we journey together! I would love to hear what ideas and information you learned through your personal study.
