Notes on The Epistle of St. Paul to the Colossians (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

1:15 The firstborn: That is, first begotten; as the Evangelist declares, the only begotten of his Father: hence, St. Chrisostom explains firstborn, not first created, as he was not created at all, but born of his Father before all ages; that is, coeval with the Father and with the Holy Ghost.
