Colossians 2:16, KJV Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. psr.2, I believe these are the verses you wanted to discuss. I believe you said that they indicated that the OT observances are to be reinstated worldwide. Sorry, but that's the wrong take. Jesus physically made these things of no effect...both those named in V.16 and others not mentioned such as mandatory circuncision. Since this is the versions forum, let me say the NIV was correct by saying they were shadows of things that WERE to come, namely JESUS and His acts...as well as what He'll do when He returns. Paul is saying to let no MAN judge you in whether or not you keep these observances...and that they were and are shadows, while those shadows are cast from the SOLIDITY OF JESUS. However, I believe the Jews will rebuild the temple & reinstate the OT form of worship in it during the Tribulation & the Antichrist's reign. Anyone else care to comment?
