Christ is above all as the head of the church, as the first resurrected and glorified One, and as the One in Whom dwells all the fullness of God. We learned not only that Christ is the head of the church and that the church is a body, but also the practical implications of these truth for church life. Christ is the first-born from the dead, indicating that He has priority in time of resurrection and in rank over all creation, of which He is not a part since He is uncreated. Verse 18 uses first-born in a somewhat different than the use of the same word in verse 15, but in neither case does the word indicate that Christ was generated or had a beginning. Finally, we thought together about the the idea of the term "fullness" which has to do with the complete essence of deity which was pleased to dwell in Christ.
