For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in the Son — Col 1:19 NET
The Father loves the Son and has placed all things under his authority.—As a result God exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow – in heaven and on earth and under the earth – and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.—Far above every rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.—For all things in heaven and on earth were created by him – all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, whether principalities or powers – all things were created through him and for him.
For this reason Christ died and returned to life, so that he may be the Lord of both the dead and the living.—And you have been filled in him, who is the head over every ruler and authority.—For we have all received from his fullness.

“Therefore write what you saw, what is, and what will be after these things.” — Rev 1:19 NET
Men carried along by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.—What we have seen and heard we announce to you too, so that you may have fellowship with us (and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ).
“Look at my hands and my feet; it’s me! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones like you see I have.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.—The person who saw it has testified (and his testimony is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth), so that you also may believe.
For we did not follow cleverly concocted fables when we made known to you the power and return of our Lord Jesus Christ; no, we were eyewitnesses of his grandeur.—That your faith would not be based on human wisdom but on the power of God.
