Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Colossians 2:10

_ _ And — And therefore; and so. Translate in the Greek order, “Ye are in Him (by virtue of union with Him) filled full” of all that you need (John 1:16). Believers receive of the divine unction which flows down from their Divine Head and High Priest (Psalms 133:2). He is full of the “fullness” itself; we, filled from Him. Paul implies, Therefore ye Colossians need no supplementary sources of grace, such as the false teachers dream of. Christ is “the Head of all rule and authority” (so the Greek), Ephesians 1:10; He, therefore, alone, not these subject “authorities” also, is to be adored (Colossians 2:18).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Colossians 2:10

And ye — Who believe. Are filled with him — John 1:16. Christ is filled with God, and ye are filled with Christ. And ye are filled by him. The fulness of Christ overflows his church, Psalms 133:3. He is originally full. We are filled by him with wisdom and holiness. Who is the head of all principality and power — Of angels as well as men Not from angels therefore, but from their head, are we to ask whatever we stand in need of.
