Study 1 From The Book of Hebrews Is: Hebrews 1
- Verses 1:4. List the statements made about Christ in verses 2 and what ways is He greater than prophets and angels
- How do the scriptures quoted in verses 5:14 confirm the statement of verse 4? Define for yourself the ways in which what God says of Christ is different from what He says of angels.
- The emphasis laid upon Christ’s superiority to angels, which to us seems obvious, is explained by the fact that, to the Jews, one of the chief glories of the Old Testament revelation was that it was given through angels. See 2:2.
- Verse 7. Angels are created beings; they are God’s servants; and their form and appearance suffer change and transformation at God’s pleasure. Contrast the royal dominion and unchanging being of the Son (verses 8-12).
