Colossians 1:12-29 - [Verse 15 in Original Greek]

12 giving thanks to the R30 Father, who has qualified us to F18 share in the R31 inheritance of the saints F19 in Light. R32 13 For F20 He rescued us from the domain F21 R33 of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His F22 R34 beloved Son, 14 in R35 whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 15 He F23 is the image R36 of the invisible R37 God, the firstborn R38 of all creation. 16 For by F24 R39 Him all things were created, {both} R40 in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones R41 or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is F25 R42 before all things, and in Him all things hold F26 together. 18 He is also head R43 of the R44 body, the church; and He is the R45 beginning, the R46 firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. 19 For it F27 was the R47 {Father's} good pleasure for all the R48 fullness F28 to dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile R49 all things to Himself, having made peace R50 through the R51 blood of His cross; through Him, {I say,} whether R52 things on earth or things in heaven. F29 21 And although you were formerly R53 alienated and hostile in mind, {engaged} in evil deeds, 22 yet He has now reconciled R54 you in His fleshly body R55 through death, in order to present R56 you before Him holy R57 and blameless and beyond reproach-- 23 if indeed you continue in the F30 faith firmly established R58 and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope R59 of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in R60 all creation under heaven, and R61 of which I, Paul, was F31 made a minister. F32 R62 24 Now R63 I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I R64 do F33 my share on behalf of His R65 body, which is the church, in filling up what is lacking in F34 Christ's afflictions. 25 Of R66 {this church} I was F35 made a minister according to the stewardship R67 from God bestowed on me for your benefit, so that I might fully F36 carry out the {preaching of} the word of God, 26 {that is,} the R68 mystery which has been hidden from the {past} ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, F37 27 to whom God R69 willed to make known what is the R70 riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ R71 in you, the hope R72 of glory. 28 We proclaim Him, admonishing R73 every man and teaching every man with F38 all wisdom, R74 so that we may present R75 every man complete F39 R76 in Christ. 29 For this purpose also I labor, R77 striving R78 according R79 to His power, F40 which mightily F41 works within me.

Col 1-15-19 is another great example of Nicene Creed Bias of making Jesus not real.
