Colossians 1:18

Context

1:18 He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn 1  from among the dead, so that he himself may become first in all things. 2 

Colossians 1:24

Context

1:24 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for you, and I fill up in my physical body – for the sake of his body, the church – what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ.

1 tn See the note on the term “firstborn” in 1:15. Here the reference to Jesus as the “firstborn from among the dead” seems to be arguing for a chronological priority, i.e., Jesus was the first to rise from the dead.

2 tn Grk “in order that he may become in all things, himself, first.”
