Hebrews 1 Commentary

(1:1-3) Jesus Christ is God's Son - Hebrews 1:1–10:18 presents a series of sections showing how Christ is superior to key aspects of Judaism. The new covenant is shown to be far superior to the old. The writer of Hebrews reported that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, initiated a new, long-awaited age. Christ brought spiritual peace and a spiritual Kingdom. Jesus, the Messiah, has already begun his Kingdom on earth in the hearts of his followers. In chapter 1, Christ is presented as the ultimate and superior revelation of God. This can greatly encourage us and help us avoid drifting away from our faith in Christ.

(1:4-14) Christ is Greater than the Angels - Angels are servants of Christ. They play a vital role in today’s world as ministering spirits sent to serve those who have accepted God’s salvation. God the Father calls Jesus Christ his one and only Son, and he orders angels to worship his Son. If God, who is above all, gives such praise to Jesus Christ, how can we praise him any less

Dave Burnette's Life Application

An All Sufficient Savior

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we start the book of Hebrews with Chapter 1 and in our text we see the author explaining how Jesus-Christ is greater than the angles supporting the doctrine of the deity of Christ. Jesus is 100% God and 100% man making Him sufficient to pay for our sins. In making application we see that Jesus is Lord, higher than any angel as He is Lord. He is sufficient to meet all your needs. How about you? Do you see that Jesus is all you need? Let us  learn from our text today and the reminder of the author of Hebrews that Jesus is Higher than the angles, He is Lord, and Jesus is an all sufficient savior and is able to save your soul and meet your needs.


Hebrews 1

Hebrews 1

 1God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

 2Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

 3Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

 4Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

 5For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

 6And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

 7And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

 8But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

 9Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

 10And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:

 11They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;

 12And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

 13But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

 14Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
