Colossians 1:15 - 1:20
Steve Gregg delves into the book of Colossians, suggesting that Paul may be quoting an early creedal statement in verses 15-16 and the first part of verse 17. He discusses Jesus' relationship with creation, emphasizing his role as the firstborn and ruler, rather than being eternally begotten. Gregg explores the concept of the church as the body of Christ, highlighting the interconnectedness and shared life of its members. Additionally, he touches on the Greek word "plērōma" used in Colossians, which holds significance in the context of Gnostic sects.
