A Study Of Christ: Jesus’ Metaphorical Names (5) (Colossians 1:15-20)Phillip Stuckey, May 3, 2020
Part of the A Study of Christ series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Scripture speaks about the person and work of Jesus in rich metaphors. From the “I Am” statements in John’s Gospel, we should be impressed and awed by the grace and life that Jesus brought in His ministry and sacrifice. In this lesson, we want to consider a few more metaphors that speak to us about the greatness of Jesus.

Colossians 1:15–20 (Listen)
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And 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, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
