Deeper Christian Bible Study in Ephesians • Study 35
Preeminent: surpassing all others; distinguished; the greatest; superior.
In Colossians 1:18 Paul tells us that in all things Christ is to have the preeminence – He is to take center stage, be the North Star, the focal point, and the essence of our lives.
This concept of the preeminence of Jesus Christ is the heart of our passage in Ephesians 1:21-22.
In this section of Ephesians, Paul is talking about the position and superiority of Christ by declaring that He has a Name that is above all others … not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
In this expositional message, Nathan Johnson explains the preeminence of Christ and gives a rich meditation on the Name (Jesus) which is above all other names.
