The Son of God Is the Same as God

15 No one can see God,
    but the Son is exactly like God.
    He rules over everything that has been made.[a]
16 Through his power all things were made:
    things in heaven and on earth, seen and not seen—
all spiritual rulers, lords, powers, and authorities.
    Everything was made through him and for him.

17 The Son was there before anything was made.
    And all things continue because of him.
