OCTOBER 14 READING…HEBREWS 1
The key to understanding the book of Hebrews is understanding the primacy of Christ in all things. The writer of this book is attempting to help the believing Jews understand that now that they have Christ, they don’t need to go back to those things that brought them to Him. This book begins by declaring that though God spoke in times past through the prophets…now He has spoken finally through His Son Jesus. Once Jesus has said it…nothing else needs to be said…nothing else can be said. Watch out for the so-called ”prophets” out there today…they are not what they claim to be.
The writer goes on to declare that Jesus is above, and before the angels. God never declared any angel to be His son…only Jesus. Jesus’ throne is exalted above all thrones and dominions. He is the Lord from the beginning…God who laid the foundations of the earth. Jesus is not a created being…He is the Creator.
Please share your thoughts from today’s reading.
