HEBREWS CHAPTER 1
1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 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 on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4 being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. 7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. 8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: 11 they shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; 12 and as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. 13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Lesson No. 644 "The Brightness of His Glory" Book of Hebrews, Chapter 1 11/13/2022
1) Paul is believed to be the author of the book of Hebrews. If he is the apostle to the gentiles, why is he writing to the Hebrews? 2) Over the ages, how has God spoke to man? Verse 1 only mentions through prophets, but now he is making a point in verse 2 as to how this happens. Who is he talking about?
3) Chapter 1 focuses on Jesus as the Christ, whom the Jews knew had existed, they just didn't believe that Jesus was/is THE CHRIST. What points does he make as to the identification of Jesus as the Christ?
Verse 2- heir of all things,
Verse 3- Father’s glory, image of the Father’s person, word of the Father’s power, purged our sins, sits on the right hand of God the Father
Verse 4- better than the angels, more excellent than the angels
Verse 5- established God the Father and God the Son
Verse 6- all the angels worship Him the Son
Verse 7- angels are His ministers a flame of fire (us perhaps)
Verse 8- His throne is forever, sceptre of righteousness
Verse 9- Jesus anointed with the oil of gladness
Verse 10- maker of heaven and earth
Verses 11, 12- everlasting God the Son
Verse 13, 14- ruling from the throne on the right hand of the Father
4) Verse 14 also mentions the main mission of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. What is it? Who does this pertain to? 5) So, this book speaks to convincing the Jews that Jesus is the Christ. How is Paul trying to do this? Is this a good strategy?
6) Let’s talk about the title God gives himself….The Son of God. NOTES:________________________________________________
