The letter to the Colossians was written from Rome by the Apostle Paul during his first imprisonment, the one which occurs at the close of the book of Acts. Paul was living in his own rented house, chained to a Roman guard day after day. He wrote to some people whom he'd never met, as far as we can tell. Colossae was a city in the Roman province of Asia, in present-day Turkey. The Christians in Colossae had been brought to Christ, and the church established there, by a man named Epaphras, who had ministered with the apostle.

The Early-Day Saints  ( Colossians 4:7-18 )  Sunday Message

In our final study in the letter to the Colossians we come to a list of names of associates and friends of the apostle Paul. We could call these people "the early-day saints." Down the street from this church there is another church building, called "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints." Mormons believe that the Scripture has been so garbled in translation through the centuries that it has lost all authenticity, so that God had to begin again with a new revelation which they call the Book of Mormon. Thus, they think of themselves as the Latter-Day Saints.
