Prominent or Preeminent Every false teacher seeks to make Jesus less than who He is. Many false faiths give Jesus a prominent position. Prominent means, “leading, important, or well-known." But where the Apostle Paul takes us in Colossians Chapter 1, is Jesus is to be “PREEMINENT” which means, “above or before others; superior; to be first, hold the first place." Join us in our study of Colossians Chapter 1 to see why Christ is far more than just prominent.
