The Epistle of Hebrews

Post  baby_blue4u on Sun 07 Jun 2009, 5:21 pm

Hey guys as I was doing my bible study today I thought of sharing the same truth with you all!

Chapter 1:1

" God who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets"

Here we see that God is the same yesterday , today and forever more for He still speaks to his children today . God spoke through prophets, dreams, visions, angels, direct speach and even through a burning bush.

Capter1:2

"has in these days spoken to us by His Son whom He has appointed heir of all things through whom also he made the worlds."

God speaks to us by His Son Jesus and Jesus is appointed as heir of all things. Jesus is the word of God that became flesh and dwelt among us.

Chapter1:3

"who 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 at the right hand of the Majesty"

Jesus is the exact image of God, He upholds all things by the word of His power. Jesus took our sins upon Him , He cleansed us from all sin.

I read this verse over and over and I still even now am amazed at this astonishing truth. For Jesus the express image of God carried our sins on Him. He did not have to do it for all belonged to Him for He is blameless and rightheous but yet He still chose to bore our sins on Him.

Chapter1:4

"having become so much better than the angels as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they"

Jesus is higher than the angels , He inherit a more excellent name than them because of this outstanding truth that He is the Son of God. For to inherit something you have to be related to that person angels cant inherit things from God only Jesus could for he is the Only Son of God Almighty and therefore by inheritance he is made higher than all.

Chapter1:5

"For to which of the angels did He ever say " You are My Son today I have begotten You , and again I will be to Him a Father and He shall be to Me a Son"

God never said to one of the angels you are my Son Jesus is called the Son of God and

Chapter1:6

" But when He again brings the first born into this world He says " Let all angels of God whorship Him"

God appointed and told the angels to whorship Jesus Christ His Son

Chapter1:7

" and of the angels He says " Who make His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire"

Angels are there to minister on behalf of God to all believers

Chapter1:8

"but to the Son He says" Your throne O God is forever and ever a scepter of righteouness is the scepter of Your kingdom"

Jesus has been given all power and is upon the throne , He has a kingdom of righteouness

Chapter 1:9

" You have loved righteouness and hated lawlessness therefore God Your God has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions"

God said to Jesus because He has loved righteousness and hated lawlessness He has anointed Him. Notice the angels weren't anointed only Jesus was . The word companions means participants, partners. Jesus is the Anointed of God

Chapter1:10

"And You Lord in the beginning laid the foundations of the earth and the heavens are the works of Your hands"

Jesus was present with the creation of the world.

Chapter1:11

" They will perish but You remain and they will all grow old like a garment"

Heaven and earth will perish but Jesus remains the same. O halleluyah to that!

Chapter1:12

" Like a cloak You will fold them up and they will be changed but You are the same and Your years will not fail"

God is telling Jesus that he will remain and that He wont ever ever fail. He will be there forever and ever

Chapter1:13

"but to which of the angels has He ever said " sit at My right hand till I make Your enemies Your footstool"

God has never said to the angels or to anyone sit at my right hand. Only Jesus was told to sit at God's right hand until God will make His enemies His footstool. And by Jesus we are heirs according to the promise and we are seated with Him in heavenly places Only through Jesus and no one else.


Jesus was given all power and glory His kingdom of righteouness is established. We can only be partakers of this great truth if we are His. We can only be His if we obey His word and if we render our lives to Him. No man , No money nothing at all can be able to make us part of this truth Only Jesus can. He is the only one able to make us heirs of the promise to be part of His kingdom of righteouness.

I thank our God for giving us such a presious gift as Jesus for giving us the oportunity to be part of His kingdom .



To Jesus be all the glory !

Thank you Baby for your commentary on Hebrews 1:1. I liked it very much and to add I would say that this Epistle begins like Genesis and the Gospel according to John basically showing who is the Author of the old revelation in the prophets and of the new in his Son.

Hebrews 1:6 reminds of
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. (Luke 2:13-14)
Thank you for your beautiful commentary and I am putting in the "Commentary Forums". You have indeed grown in spirit, wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

Happy Birthday and may God bless you and your family
