Paul is in prison, probably in Rome and he writes to a church in Colossae that had been founded by the Epaphras as he told them the good news about Jesus Christ. In these first 8 verses Paul introduces himself and his letter to the Colossians and explains how thankful he is for their faith, love and hope.
