Colossians 1:17



17 And [kai] he [autos] is [esti] before [pro] all things [pas], and [kai] by [en] him [autos] all things [pas] consist [sunistao]. KJV-Interlinear



17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. NASB



Just to make sure that folks know that Jesus is God, Paul makes it clear here, that Jesus Christ has existed before everything that was created. The word pro means to exist chronologically prior to anything else.


He Himself was never created.He is God, co-equal and co-eternal with the other two members of the Godhead. There is no difference between Christ and the other two members of the Godhead.


If Christ created all that is created, then He had to preexist prior to creation, and therefore He must possess eternal life.


God did not create Himself.God did not come into existence from some former preexisting universe, or by means of some natural phenomena.


There has been only one universe, and that is the one we are currently living in.


Likewise, if Christ created all that is, then He must possess infinite power and infinite wisdom.Moreover, Paul states here that Christ, by His own power, holds all things together. So Christ sustains and maintains with respect to functioning management, over all that exists in this universe and beyond.


Jesus Christ controls history.


During history, Jesus became a man, in order to continue history and to resolve the angelic conflict, among many other things.


Jesus Christ is the unique person of the universe, in that He is both God and man, in one person. He is the revealed and visible member of the Godhead, but that does not make Him any greater nor lesser than the other two members of the Godhead.


His title is Lord. That is Kurios in the Greek and Yahweh in the Hebrew, both of which proclaim His deity.


His name, Jesus, means Savior, which reflects His redemptive work on the Cross for salvation. And Christ, means Anointed One or Messiah, which indicates His offices of prophet, priest, and king. He is the chosen or selected member of the Godhead through which humanity may access a relationship with God.
