In beginning a study of these two epistles of St. Paul one begins to understand what is meant by the “unfathomable wisdom or God.” As one delves deeper into the text, one must certainly realize that our human wisdom is indeed puny and inadequate; in fact, not even worthy to be termed wisdom! However, this is not to be a dissertation on the wisdom of man, nor is it in the least way to indicate that man can fully understand these great truths of Scripture as we find them in these two beautifully written epistles, but it is to attempt in a small way a comparison between the doctrines and general construction of these two sections of Holy Spirit. With a prayer to the Holy Spirit to grant wisdom and insight into the greater and fuller understanding of the Epistles to the Ephesians and Colossians let us begin our study by taking up the Isagogioal part.
