HELPS word-Studies

466 antanaplēróō (from 473 /antí, "corresponding" and 378 /anaplēróō, "fulfill") – properly, to fill, especially in lieu of (in place of); to off-set, filling up what is lacking (remaining).

466 (antanaplēroō) only occurs in Col 1:24 where it refers to believers "filling up" the remaining sufferings of Christ – i.e. when Christians experience wrath from unbelievers who are really still persecuting Christ. That is, venting their rejection of Christ on His followers because they can no longer directly "pull Christ's beard or spit on His face." So they do the "next best thing": persecute the people in whom Christ lives (cf. 1 Jn 4:17).
