Colossians.” In both epistles, the apostle rather, focuses on
the subject of the Lord’s coming.
In the First Epistle the subjects of faith, love, and hope are
brought before us. The apostle comforts these new believers
in revealing the truth of the coming of the Lord for His saints.
In the Second Epistle Paul exposes the error that the “Day
of the Lord ” had already arrived and foretells the apostasy of
