|Staying in the Word|
Chapter Two, Lesson Three
REMINDING THE FLOCK Page
** Was Paul referring to a surgical procedure?
** Paul's metaphorical use of the practice of circumcision was important because of the view held by many of the false teachers in his day which said that you could only become saved if you literally were circumcised (Acts 15:1). What does this "circumcision of Christ" accomplish according to Paul?
** What does Paul have in mind with that statement?
V.12 ** Having reminded the Colossians of this great work of Christ on their behalf, of what does he remind them next?
** Is Paul suggesting that you cannot be saved by literal circumcision, but you can be saved if you will just get baptized?
** Then what does Paul add here in verse 12 to let us know he is talking about a spiritual baptism?
