Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Colossians 1:28

_ _ preach — rather as Greek, “announce” or “proclaim.”

_ _ warning ... teaching — “Warning” is connected with repentance, refers to one’s conduct, and is addressed primarily to the heart. “Teaching” is connected with faith, refers to doctrines, and is addressed primarily to the intellect. These are the two heads of evangelical teaching.

_ _ every ... every man — without distinction of Jew or Gentile, great or small (Romans 10:12, Romans 10:13).

_ _ in all wisdom — with all the wisdom in our method of teaching that we possess: so Alford. But Colossians 1:9; Colossians 3:16, favor Estius’ view, which refers it to the wisdom communicated to those being taught: keeping back nothing, but instructing all in the perfect knowledge of the mysteries of faith which is the true wisdom (compare 1 Corinthians 2:6, 1 Corinthians 2:7; 1 Corinthians 12:8; Ephesians 1:17).

_ _ present — (See on Colossians 1:22); at Christ’s coming.

_ _ every man — Paul is zealous lest the false teachers should seduce one single soul of Christ’s people at Colosse. So each individual among them should be zealous for himself and his neighbor. Even one soul is of incalculable value.

_ _ perfect in Christ — who is the element in living union with whom alone each believer can find perfection: perfectly instructed (Ephesians 4:13) in doctrine, and full grown or matured in faith and practice. “Jesus” is omitted in all the oldest manuscripts.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Colossians 1:12-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Colossians 1:28

We teach the ignorant, and admonish them that are already taught.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Colossians 1:28

(14) Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in (x) all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

(14) He protests that he faithfully executes his apostleship in every place, bringing men to Christ only through the Lord's plentiful blessing of his labours.

(x) Perfect and sound wisdom, which is perfect in itself, and will in the end make those perfect who follow it.
