Verse by Verse: Colossians 1:15-17
Those few verses in that chapter 1 concerning who Christ is, that he is the image of the invisible God, that is he is the one who makes the invisible God visible to us, the first born from the dead, the first begotten of all creation and that in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. My friends what a statement that is concerning the Lord Jesus Christ. You see that in those verses the apostle Paul is filling the horizon of those Colossians with the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ as the second person of the Trinity co-equal and co-eternal with God because the apostle Paul knew that that was the only antidote for the false teaching that had come among them because false philosophers and false cults and false systems had come among these Colossians.
