You misquoted scripture:

Col 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body of Christ.

ARE, not "were".

Great catch on the verse.

My BibleWorks says the verb is present tense as you stated.

"ARE, not "were"."

Not exactly. From Paul's perspective "are" would be correct since the temple was still standing and the temporal/temporary Levitical priesthood was still ministering according to the bloody requirements of the old covenant, the covenant that was decaying and passing away. AD70 was the fulfillment of the "days of vengeance" meted out against unrepentant Israel.

From our perspective, 2000 years since the temple was destroyed and the keys of the Kingdom were transferred from national Israel to spiritual Israel, the Church, the phrase I used was quite correct.
