Jesus is “Preeminent”
Understanding Colossians – Chapter 1
Anthony Buzzard and J. Dan Gill
Anthony Buzzard and J. Dan Gill begin a new commentary series. This time they take up the Book of Colossians. In Chapter 1, they find Paul’s theme that Jesus is “over all others,” both now and in the coming kingdom of God. They tell us that in Colossians, Paul was not declaring Jesus to be “preexistent” as tradition has taught, but rather that he is “preeminent” – head over all.
