He’s #1!


The pre-eminence, supremacy,
and all-sufficiency
of Christ.

Col 1:15-20

Col 1:15

Verse 15 is one of the clearest statements in the Bible about the deity of Christ.

Col 2:9

Christ is God in the flesh.

Chapter 1 features His deity.

Heb 1:1-4

Chapter 2 features His humanity.

Heb 2:5-18

Col 1:15

“firstborn” means first in rank.
Numero Uno!

Christ is pre-eminent over all of creation.

He is prior to, and supreme over, all creation, since He is its Lord.

Col 1:18

The firstborn from the dead refers to His resurrection.

He is the first fruits of the new creation.

So Christ is pre-eminent over the original creation (which now groans…)

Rom 8:19-23
