A Pastor, A Doctor, And A Sad Story

Colossians 4:12-14 — In these verses the Apostle Paul passes on greetings to the church from three men who were with him at Rome – Epaphras, Luke and Demas.

Epaphras was the pastor of the church at Colossae and as well as passing on a greeting, Paul had some wonderful things to say about this man. Luke was a doctor and long-time companion of Paul. Even though he made a massive contribution to the Christian faith his name only appears twice in the New Testament. Sadly, whenever we hear the name Demas we are reminded of his failure.

In this study we learn about these men and draw some imortant lessons from their lives for our daily walk with the Lord.
