Can you explain in detail why Jesus is supreme over everything?
The reason why is a simple statement. Jesus is God. Isaiah prophesies that Jesus would be God (Isaiah 9:6). Micah prophesies that the Coming One would be of old, even from everlasting (Micah 5:2). Malachi prophesies that the Lord will come to His temple. (Malachi 3:1) John states that the One who created all things, the Word, is the One who dwelt among us (John 1:1-14). Thomas reaffirmed his belief in Jesus as God and Jesus blessed him (John 20:28). Paul calls Him the “eternally blessed God” (Romans 9:5). Paul calls Jesus God in Titus 2:13. Peter does the same in 2 Peter 1:1. Jesus speaks of sharing in the glory of the Father before there ever was a world (John 17:5). This apparently is a reference back to Isaiah 42:8 where God says that He will not give His glory to another. Jesus referred to Himself as the great I Am, in John 8:58, the One who existed before Abraham (see Exodus 3:14). The writer to the Hebrews called Jesus the “brightness of [God’s] glory and the expresss image of [God’s] person (Hebrews 1:3). Paul says in Phillipians 2:6 that Jesus was in the form of God but became human for us.
Thus, the reason why Jesus is over everything is that He is God. He is the creator of all things (John 1:3, Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:2). He is the sustainer of all things (Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 1:3). He is the One who is over all (Romans 1:5).
I trust this helps.
May the Lord Jesus and His Spirit guide you into a fuller understanding of Himself.
