Many authors have recognized that the "Christ Hymn" of Colossians 1:15-20 is "soaked" in the Wisdom tradition of Hellenistic-Judaism. In this work, Fr. Leonard Andrie explores how the author of Colossians, like a wise scribe trained for the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 13:51-52), masterfully adopted what was previously said of Wisdom in the Hellenistic-Judaic tradition and creatively adapted it to Christ to express both His supremacy and sufficiency. This, in turn, not only enabled the author to present a "cosmic vision of Christ," but also helped him ward off a heterodox "philosophy" that was creeping into the Colossian Church so as to present his children holy and blameless in Christ (Eph. 1:4; Col. 1:22).
