Context Readings

God's Power In Christ

21 [There He is exalted] high above all rulers and authorities and powers and dominion and every name [i.e., title of honor] that can be given, not only in this present age but [also] in the one to come. 22 And God placed everything in subjection under His [i.e., Christ's] feet, and appointed Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His [spiritual] body. The church is completely filled by Christ [or, "Christ is completely filled by God"], who completely fills everything in every way.
