WHO IS JESUS?
Of all the known human figures, recorded in the archaic historical records of mankind to the present time, none have been as controversial as Jesus Christ. While many religions recognize Him as being a God, Prophet, Deity, Wise Enlightened Man, Holy Man, Teacher, and the like, none except the followers of Christianity acknowledge Him as the Son of GOD, and the one and only way to the Almighty Sovereign Eternal, Everlasting God. All the writings of The Bible refer to Him from beginning to end. Wikipedia the internet’s Free Online Encyclopedia describes The Bible as, “A collection a sacred texts or scriptures that the Jews and Christians consider to be a product of divine inspiration and a record of the relationship between God and humans.” Archaeological findings have over the years revealed the accuracy of the people, places and events mentioned throughout the scriptures thereby establishing it is being an accurate historical source.

The Pre-eminence of Christ
Col 1:15 [Now] He is the exact likeness of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible]; He is the Firstborn of all creation.
Col 1:16 For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him.
Col 1:17 And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together). [Prov. 8:22-31.]
Col 1:18 He also is the Head of [His] body, the church; seeing He is the Beginning, the Firstborn from among the dead, so that He alone in everything and in every respect might occupy the chief place [stand first and be preeminent].
Col 1:19 For it has pleased [the Father] that all the divine fullness (the sum total of the divine perfection, powers, and attributes) should dwell in Him permanently.
Col 1:20 And God purposed that through (by the service, the intervention of) Him [the Son] all things should be completely reconciled back to Himself, whether on earth or in heaven, as through Him, [the Father] made peace by means of the blood of His cross.
Col 1:21 And although you at one time were estranged and alienated from Him and were of hostile attitude of mind in your wicked activities,
Col 1:22 Yet now has [Christ, the Messiah] reconciled [you to God] in the body of His flesh through death, in order to present you holy and faultless and irreproachable in His [the Father's] presence.
Col 1:23 [And this He will do] provided that you continue to stay with and in the faith [in Christ], well-grounded and settled and steadfast, not shifting or moving away from the hope [which rests on and is inspired by] the glad tidings (the Gospel), which you heard and which has been preached [as being designed for and offered without restrictions] to every person under heaven, and of which [Gospel] I, Paul, became a minister.
