ROMANS 14:5-6 AND COLOSSIANS 2:16 IN SOCIAL CONTEXTBy Norman H YoungAvondale CollegeCOORANBONG NSW 2265AustraliaI IntroductionThere is very little agreement among scholars concerning the interpretation of Col 2:8-23. However, it is generally accepted, even by those who argue for a syncretistic heresy in Colossians, that the background of verse16 is Jewish.1 There is also wide support for the view that Rom 14:1-23 parallels to a considerable degree the issue in Col 2:13-22.2 The main elements in common between the two passages are the references to not judging (Col 2:16; Rom 14:4, 10, 13, 22); to holy days (Col 2:16; Rom 14:5-6); to scruples about food (Col 2:16, 21-22; Rom 14: 2-3, 6b, 14-17, 20-22), and to dying and rising with Christ (Col 2:12-13, 20; 3:1-3; Rom 14:8-9).
