Has made known
In the Spirit.”
Paul said, “Epaphras has made known (ὁ καὶ δηλώσας) to us (ἡμῖν) your love (τὴν ὑμῶν ἀγάπην) in the Spirit (ἐν Πνεύματι).” Only the Pauline letters used this word δηλώσας, that means to make plain, declare, or reveal. Paul explained that Epaphras had let him know about their spiritual love. Apparently, the church at Colossae was founded by Epaphras (Ἐπαφρᾶς). He also was a missionary who may have founded other churches in the Colossae area also. Do you have a spiritual love for anyone?
