Colossians Bible Study – Chapter 1 Part 24

The Purpose Revealed

Jesus Christ’s Purpose

 

Colossians 1:18 (KJB) “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.”

The church is the body of Christ. Jesus is its head. He also is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead.  The reference to the “firstborn from the dead” points clearly to His resurrection. He indeed has “become the firstfruits of them that slept”.

1 Corinthians 15:20 (KJB) “ But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.”
