1 Corinthians 15:27 is explained out of love, and the chief aim is to show how it does not speak if the incorrect man-made doctrine known as the ‘trinity’.
A number of other verses which are similar will also inturn be explained.
For he “has put everything under his feet.” Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:27 NIV
With G-d being only the Father, we can instantly see that G-d put every thing under Christ’s (Messiah’s) command, except for G-d Himself – as Christ is not G-d.
This interpretation is again supported in verses such as the following, which also confirm that God is above all, though he has put Christ as king over all creation;
And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,
Ephesians 1:22 NIV.
Peaceably, this explanation might sound simple, however, there are some who genuinely cannot see it just yet.
This being said and with the context now known, we can understand the meaning of other verses such as;
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Matthew 28:18 NIV
(Context: This being said, God is still above all, including over Christ – as per what we have read previously.)
If we read on from our core subject verse, 1 Corinthians 15:28 is quite interesting and will be explained;
And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then the Son also himself [will] be [under] him [(- that is, at God’s right hand)] [Who] put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
1 Corinthians 15:28 KJV [amended with explanation in brackets]
This verse has been ranslated a little more clearly.
As per the Strong’s Greek Concordance, one word that has been amended here is G5293 which has been rendered as per it’s legal definition, ‘under’.
So then how do we explain the verse when it says ‘…then shall the Son also himself be under Him…’ (God)?
The verse is perhaps actually speaking of Matthew 28:18 (above), where after having been ressurected, the Lord Jesus Christ informed his disciples that ‘… “All authority in heaven and on earth…’ (Matthew 28:18 NIV) had been given to him.
The Son is thus ‘under’ God, however at His right hand – and this expression means that God has appointed Christ as king over all, except for G-d Himself;
So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
Mark 16:19 KJV
The right hand being an expression, which means as an approved, appointed, person – and this relates to ‘power‘, and does not relate to a man being G-d;
‘And Jesus said, I am… the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.’
(Mark 14:62 KJV)
For reference God’s commandments state that G-d is not a man or son of man in Numbers 23:19.
Hoping it is fruitful.
May the Holy G-d bless you beyond maximum believing in His risen Son the Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Yehoshua HaMoshiach). Amen.
