jus fe overstand a likkle bout de letter Paul wrote, dis letter Iyah was so closely related to Ephesians an Philemon, but it was probly written before ephesians, an it definetly share some main ideas, true? we know dat Paul wrote it from prison, an him was prisoned twice, once in ephesus an once in rome, so if it was written in ephesus it would haf been written round 54 A.D. or if in rome it would haf been written round 62 A.D. ..ither weh de gospel had been preached in Colosse near Laodicea in western Asia Minor..nearby Ephesus any weh..but wha gwan round dere in dem times was nuff doctrinal heresy, an dat wha Paul address in dat letter..dem fe mix Judaism wit some early form of Gnosticism..dem seh dat Jesus was some kinda 'superhuman' but Him nah truly God!! dem a gwan wit angels as intercessors to get to God, but Paul dismissed such tings as dat in him letters..de letter deal wit NOT PHILOSOPHY BUT CHRIST, NOT LEGALISM BUT CHRIST, NOT CARNALITY BUT CHRIST,...dat why him seh we fe put to death dem tings pon earth, an Icentrate pon de tings crucial to Salvation..Jesus was allways being second guessed by de Pharisee dem, fe healing an ting pon de Sabbath..but "Him was a radical an different in every weh, contravershal de talk of de town so fe seh"
