Bible: Col 1:15-19


The Supremacy of Christ


He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn 2  over all creation, 3 

1:16 for all things in heaven and on earth were created by him – all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, 4  whether principalities or powers – all things were created through him and for him.

1:17 He himself is before all things and all things are held together 5  in him.

1:18 He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn 6  from among the dead, so that he himself may become first in all things. 7 

1:19 For God 8  was pleased to have all his 9  fullness dwell 10  in the Son 11
