Colossians 1:4

_ _ Since we heard — literally, “Having heard.” The language implies that he had only heard of, and not seen, them (Colossians 2:1). Compare Romans 1:8, where like language is used of a Church which he had not at the time visited.

_ _ love ... to all — the absent, as well as those present [Bengel].
