[b-greek] Passive Agent

Hello all,
In Colossians 1:16, "en autw ektisthh ta panta" is usually translated "by
him all things were created." This "en autw" is not the normal dative of
instrument or dative of means or dative of passive agent. Is this to be
taken as a passive agent? If not, what does the locative dative "in him"
mean? Thanks, Matthew R. Miller
