20  Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places],21  Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come.22  And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the church [a headship exercised throughout the church], 23  Which is His body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all [for in that body lives the full measure of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself].

Vs 20 – Got raised Christ up from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand in heaven. God wanted Jesus to be seen next to Him, in power, and equal in all things. They are indeed equal. Vs 21 says Christ is far above all rule and authority and power and dominion. These verses speak of Christ’s power.

Where did Paul get this insight. This is strange just to be made up.
