The Supremacy of God’s Son

(cf. Jhn 1:1–4 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:1 - Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:2 - but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:3 - He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:4 - having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:5 - For 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”?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:6 - And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,
“Let all God’s angels worship him.”
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:7 - Of the angels he says,
“He makes his angels winds,
and his ministers a flame of fire.”
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:8 - But of the Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:9 - You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has anointed you
with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:10 - And,
“You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
and the heavens are the work of your hands;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:11 - they will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:12 - like a robe you will roll them up,
like a garment they will be changed.[fn]
But you are the same,
and your years will have no end.”
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:13 - And to which of the angels has he ever said,
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 1:14 - Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?
