1:13 He delivered us from the power of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of the Son he loves, 1 1:14 in whom we have redemption, 2 the forgiveness of sins. 1:15
The Supremacy of Christ 3
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn 4 over all creation, 5
1:16 for all things in heaven and on earth were created by him – all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, 6 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 7 in him.
1:18 He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn 8 from among the dead, so that he himself may become first in all things. 9
1:19 For God 10 was pleased to have all his 11 fullness dwell 12 in the Son 13
