Christ, First Begotten or Firstborn

Labels: , , , , , .

The title "Firstborn" or "First Begotten" is used five times of the Lord Jesus Christ.  It is a special title which denotes priority, position, rank, dignity and honour.  It does not necessarily refer to a beginning by birth but refers always to a manifestation.
