According to the teaching of the false teachers confronting the Colossians, Jesus did not have first place; He was only one of many emanations from God, but not the supreme Son of God and the preeminent one. The fact that there is “one body” in this world (Eph. Puzzles, Bible “For” is hoti, a causal conjunction, “because, since.” It points the reader to the reason Christ is in the image of God, i.e., because He is the Creator by virtue of His work as the Architect, Builder, Goal, and Sustainer of the Universe. With the Colossian heresy in mind, the apostle lays stress on the hierarchy of angelic powers to stress “…even the cosmic powers and principalities, which apparently received some prominence in that heresy, were created in Christ. Christ is the heir of all things (Heb. A recent article in U.S. News & World Report says that “the quest for the historical Jesus is getting a new surge of scholarly energy.” Every day—in churches, in self-help groups, in discussions at home and in the office—Christ is discussed. Heb 1:3). If “result,” it still expresses God’s intended result. So, by establishing In this passage, Paul makes it plain that Jesus is over all things.

Either view eliminated the Incarnation and nullified Christ’s atoning work.124. The description “firstborn” was not a fairly common Old Testament designation of the Messiah-God. This story of the good news is personal, but it is also cosmic. While Paul was not writing against full-blown Gnosticism as it would later develop, it seems clear that he was dealing with an insipient form that was mixed with certain Judaistic elements. 131 Peter T. O'Brien, Word Biblical Commentary, Colossians, Philemon, gen. After He had rebuked them for their fear and faithlessness, they, awestruck, murmured to one another, “What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?” (cf. upon the cross, God again exalted Jesus above the angels - to 1:3). 1:14), but they are never to be made preeminent or worshipped in any way as in prayer or in seeking guidance from angels (cf. As the resurrected Lord, He has conquered every enemy (death, sin, and Satan), or every power that stands to oppose God’s purpose for the human race. The Head is not in New York, London, Paris or Rome; the Head is in heaven.142, as well as the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, Paul then adds, “as well as the beginning, the firstborn from the dead.” Literally, “who is the beginning…” “Who” is the Greek hos, a relative pronoun that refers back to the “he” (autos) of verse 18a, but it has a causal sense and points to the reason Christ is the supreme head.143 “Beginning” is arche, “beginning, origin,” but it, …may be interpreted in any one of three ways: as referring to (1) supremacy in rank, (2) precedence in time, or (3) creative initiative. by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, These verses are at the heart of the epistle’s main emphasis on the exaltation and preeminence of Christ.

The Supremacy of Jesus Christ By Mike Mazzalongo Topic: Bible Characters Preached: February, 2012 The preeminence of Christ over all in the material and the spiritual world is demonstrated through the teachings of Paul the Apostle in the epistle to the Colossian church. Summing up the great facts of these verses, we have seen that Christ is: (1) The Sovereign of the First Creation: He is the very manifestation of God by virtue of the fact He is the sovereign Creator God and the Sustainer of the universe (vss. Not only is Christ creator of all things, but also Sustainer of Paul summarizes the Son’s relation to creation with the words, “and all things are held together in Him.” “Held together” is the Greek sunistemi, “to bring together, unite, collect,” and then, “continue, endure, exist, hold together.”137 Christ is not only the one who brought all things into being as their efficient cause, but He now holds them together as their conserving power. He rose from the dead in order that his preeminence might become universal, extending both to the old creation and to the new. S. Lewis Johnson introduces his comments on this portion of Colossians with the following comments, which are very fitting to the focus of these verses. 89:27). This means that not only is the Son the agent of creation in the beginning, and the goal of creation in the end, but between the beginning and the end, during time as we know it, it is he who holds the world together. In fact, interest in Him seems to be increasing right along with the proliferation of new species of privatized religion. Christ has always been higher than the angels as the 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation, 16 for all things in heaven and on earth were created by him—all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, whether principalities or powers—all things were created through him and for him. The figure of the church as the body reminds us of a number of elements: (1) Subimission—the church is always to submit to its head. When I commit myself to the revealed truth of the New Testament, I receive from God the gift of the Holy Spirit, who then begins interpreting to me what Jesus did. The Spirit of God does in me internally all that Jesus Christ did for me externally. God's plan from Christ Colossians 1:15-19 gives us one of the most profound descriptions of the person and work of Jesus Christ found in the Bible. I cannot minister to the whole church, but I can strengthen and build the church by ministering to God’s people in a local assembly.149. 2. Colossians 1:15-18 has been called “The Great Christology” because it sets forth Paul’s inspired conviction and understanding of just who Jesus Christ is. Johnson points to another important truth seen in Christ’s headship. The apostle exclaims that Christ, the Father’s beloved Son (1:13), is sovereign because of His relation to creation. Author Diminishing Angels but rather elevating Jesus to above them so let us elevate our thought. equal with God (Phil. Thus they suggest that Christ created all other things after He was created!

Then, with the words, “image of God,” Paul uses the present tense of eimi (is), which stresses that Christ is always and everywhere the manifestation of God. This form clearly denied both the person and work of Christ. He had always been first, but by his resurrection he entered upon an even wider and more significant sovereignty (cf. / Feedback. 1:2 ). …we have an illuminating contribution to Pauline thought, which may be set forth most clearly by means of an illustration. So both systems ultimately denied that it was the God-man, Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for our sins. Each Christian is a member of this spiritual body, and Jesus Christ is the Head. How great Thou art!”134. &, Hebrew Christ has sat down at the right hand of God (Heb.

John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” If there is one book in the Bible that gives us a lot of descriptions about Jesus it would be the Gospel of John. 1:11-17; 3:4-9). The pronoun “he” is best understood as the emphatic use of autos. As Johnson explains. ¦ About Paul the Apostle might have replied, “He is the image of the invisible God; He has primacy over all created things” (Col 1:15). First, it is inconsistent with the context (cf. All things have been created in Him (the eternal plans for the creation abode in Him), by Him (He acted as builder) and for Him (the creation belongs to Him and is to reflect His glory). This attempt to stone Christ shows they believed He was committing blasphemy and understood He was claiming to be God. That Peter had supremacy or authority over his brethren is nowhere stated by Christ, or claimed by Peter, or owned by the rest of the twelve. In view of the statement of verse eighteen, that He has become pre-eminent in all things, it seems probable that Paul has the thought of sovereignty primarily in view. The biblical Christ cannot be dismissed; He stands in our path forcing us to make a decision, either to the right or to the left. Salvation, of course, is dependent on both the person and work of Christ, thus, in verses 19-20, Paul highlights the work of Christ as the Reconciler of all things, the one who makes peace.
