Brief Summary

Here, Colossians 1:15 is lightly re-translated – with the explanation and proofs shared.

The purpose is to gain a clearer in that the verse is simply telling us that Christ is a representative/representation of G-d.

As a derrivitive this also will all show us that there is no such thing as the mistaken ‘trinity’ doctrine.

Begin

‘Who is the image [representation] of the invisible God…’
(Colossians 1:15 KJV [Amended])

G1504
Definition: an image, statue, representation
Usage: an image, likeness, bust.

With regard to what the Strong’s Concordance, we know that the better fitting definition is ‘representation’ – as others in English can tend to be a little misleading and allow for allusions to the incorrect man-made doctrine known as the ‘trinity’ (ref. Numbers 23:19).

If one was to consider applying a registered usage to the definition of ‘representation’ from the concordance, such could perhaps be ‘likness’ – given the fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22-23) is present in Christ beyond maximum (Col 2:9, Isaiah 48:16), he is thus imitating God’s likeness as His representative, and we are encouraged to be imitators also (Ephesians 5:1, 1 Corinthians 11:1).

Hoping it is fruitful.

Shalom.

May the Holy G-d bless you beyond maximum, believing in His risen Son the Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Yehoshua HaMoshiach). Amen.
