  • What does Col 1:15 mean ?

    In Colossians 1:15, Christ is called “the firstborn of every creature;” and yet in the succeeding verse it is stated that “all things were created by Him", how can that be?

    Col 1

    15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

    Jesus is BOTH God and Man. There is One and Only One God. That God who created everything that exists ( and therefore is The Father of us all) came down from heaven and was born of a woman to become one of us, or a Man.

    The Manhood of Jesus is a little lower than the angels and is fully man. One reason God became a man was so that He could die for our sins. God is Life and His Life is indestructible. But the manhood of Jesus could and did die. But His Godhood raised Him from the dead and He sits on the throne in heaven.

    The Godhood of Jesus has no beginning and no end. He is The First and the Last.

    The Manhood of Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. And is the first born over all creation.
