i.e. the higher power and honor due to Jesus the Christ. This doctrine is laid down in Colossians 1:18. In all things in nature, in person, in office, work, power, and honor, Christ has the pre-eminence above angels and men, or any other creature. But a man has no pre-eminence above a beast as to his body; he is liable to the same diseases and death (Ecclesiastes 3:19). See Bibliotheca Sacra, 1863, p. 681; Church Remembrancer, Jan. 1856, p. 132 sq.
