The Christ Hymn
Paul’s writings in Philippians 2:5-11 and Colossians 1:15-20 are a Hymn to Christ
These verses probably were sung as a hymn in the early church from Paul’s letters. These words are the central focus of God’s sacrificial love and humility.
Paul’s statement about Jesus in Colossians 1:15-16 is one of the strongest statements about the divine nature of Christ found anywhere in the Bible.
