Colossians 1:16-18 The Passion Translation (TPT)

16 For through the Son everything was created, both in the heavenly realm and on the earth, all that is seen and all that is unseen. Every seat of power, realm of government, principality, and authority—it was all created through him and for his purpose! 17 He existed before anything was made, and now everything finds completion in him.

18 He is the Head of his body, which is the church. And since he is the beginning and the firstborn heir in resurrection,[a] he is the most exalted One, holding first place[b] in everything.


  1. Colossians 1:18 Literally “from the dead.”
  2. Colossians 1:18 In the Greek text this is a title, “the Holder of First Place” or “the Superior One.”
