Colossians 1:15-20

15 ὅς ἐστιν εἰκὼν τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ἀοράτου, πρωτότοκος πάσης κτίσεως,
who is the image of the unseen God,
firstborn of all creation.
Jesus Christ is the subject. I believe it is clearer in English to add this at the beginning of a new sentence, this allows us to retain the original pronoun "who" instead of changing the first word to "He". ἀοράτου (ἀόρατος, ον: adjective = invisible, unseen) genitive masculine singular.16 ὅτι ἐν αὐτῷ ἐκτίσθη τὰ πάντα ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, τὰ ὁρατὰ καὶ τὰ ἀόρατα, εἴτε θρόνοι εἴτε κυριότητες εἴτε ἀρχαὶ εἴτε ἐξουσίαι· τὰ πάντα δι’ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς αὐτὸν ἔκτισται·
since all things were created by him -
in the heavens and on the earth,
the seen and the unseen,
whether thrones or dominions,
whether rulers or authorities,
All things were created by him and for him.
