The Supremacy of Christ
January 13, 2017 • Colossians 1:18-20
We use a lot of titles to describe Christ: firstborn of the dead, firstborn of all creation, reconciler, and head of the Church. What is the significance of these terms? What does it mean when we describe Christ as the firstborn? How does recognizing him as head of the Church help us understand our identity as members of his body? What is he reconciling and who is this reconciliation for? Discovering the origin of these titles and what they mean about Jesus Christ helps us understand just how far his supremacy reaches.
