Verses 15-20 are a hymn. They are written in a poetic verse form which was very common in Biblical times as a means of expressing praise and worship to God. This hymn expresses praise to Jesus’ authority over all creation (vs. 15-17) and acknowledgment of Jesus’ position as Lord over God’s new order, the church (vs. 18-20)
