The Superiority of Jesus

Hebrews 1:4-14  (ID: 1305)

The Jesus we worship is superior to all things. As Alistair Begg points out, His identity as the Son of God, His ability to save from sin, His role in creation, and His victory over His enemies highlights His vast superiority. This is the Jesus we follow and proclaim to others. He is worthy of worship and praise because of who He is.

Topics:

4having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

5For to which of the angels did God ever say,

“You are my Son,

today I have begotten you”?

Or again,

“I will be to him a father,

and he shall be to me a son”?

6And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,

“Let all God's angels worship him.”

7Of the angels he says,

“He makes his angels winds,

and his ministers a flame of fire.”

8But of the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,

the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.

9You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;

therefore God, your God, has anointed you

with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”

10And,

“You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,

and the heavens are the work of your hands;

11they will perish, but you remain;

they will all wear out like a garment,

12like a robe you will roll them up,

like a garment they will be changed.1

But you are the same,

and your years will have no end.”

13And to which of the angels has he ever said,

“Sit at my right hand

until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?

14Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?
