Colossians 2:16-17

Context

2:16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you with respect to food or drink, or in the matter of a feast, new moon, or Sabbath days – 2:17 these are only 1  the shadow of the things to come, but the reality 2  is Christ! 3 

1 tn The word “only,” though not in the Greek text, is supplied in the English translation to bring out the force of the Greek phrase.

2 tn Grk “but the body of Christ.” The term body here, when used in contrast to shadow (σκιά, skia) indicates the opposite meaning, i.e., the reality or substance itself.

3 tn The genitive τοῦ Χριστοῦ (tou Cristou) is appositional and translated as such: “the reality is Christ.
