Jesus Christ Is Superior

I freely admit to being a Bible study freak. I am fascinated by the cultural background, ancient language, and the background of the letters. Ultimately, the purpose of a study of a book of the Bible is to:

  1. Know God better,
  2. Have your faith strengthened,
  3. Learn how to live as a Christian.

From that perspective, what is Colossians about?

Jesus Christ Is Superior

Jesus Christ Is SuperiorJesus Christ is superior to any religious leader of any other religion. He is God in the flesh.

“In the Ephesian Epistle the church is the primary object, and the thought passes upward to Christ as the head of the church. In the Colossian Epistle, Christ is the primary object, and the thought passes downward to the church as the body of Christ.” – William Sanday

“Look on thine own nothingness; be humble, but look at Jesus, thy great representative, and be glad. It will save thee many pangs if thou will learn to think of thyself as being in Him” – Charles Spurgeon

Jesus Christ Is Preeminent

He is above all and beyond all.

And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. (Colossians 1:18, NKJV)

For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. (Colossians 2:9-10)

Clearly, Jesus Christ is superior to all. Therefore He is worthy of all we are, have, and will be. That is what the rest of this study will be about!

Points To Ponder

  • Since Jesus is superior, how should consider Him in the daily living of our lives?
  • Can we trust Him?
  • Is it wise to commit our lives to Him?


Abba Father God, help us to understand Jesus. All authority and power have been given to Him. He is our Savior and Lord. Leads us as we live out the life You have for us. In Jesus name, Amen.
