Whereas using the previous testomony within the New testomony has captured the eye of biblical students through the years, no research has been dedicated to the presence of Scripture in ''Colossians'', principally simply because there are not any particular quotations in ''Colossians''. With the creation of literary intertextuality into the self-discipline, notwithstanding, students have all started to commit extra recognition to the NT authors' much less particular references to Scripture, usually labelled as 'allusions' and/or 'echoes.' students, in spite of the fact that, proceed to discuss what constitutes an allusion or echo, or how one validates a given idea as such. This learn proposes new definitions of those phrases and provides a strategy on how one can realize and validate them, utilizing ''Colossians'' as a try out case.
