Hebrews Chapter 1

Read Chapter One with an open mind and ask G-d for understanding. Don’t take my word for what is being taught. Always search Scripture. If you do not have a copy of the “Brit Hadashah” (New Testament) there are many websites with the entire Bible on it. One such site is: The Blue Letter Bible

Heb 1:1 G-d, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

How did G-d speak in many ways?

He also spoke to them through the actions of the fathers and prophets.

It is glory of G-d to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings to search out a matter. Prov. 25:2

Let’s look at Ezekiel.

G-d used YECHEZK’EL (4:3-8) as a sign unto Israel by his actions. In the same fashion He used the actions of the fathers for unto us a sign for today.

The action of Abraham is a sign.

Abraham feared G-d and was willing to give His ONLY SON

What about David’s Son, Avshalom?

He died from hanging on an oak. (SH’MU’EL BET 18:9)

This is another sign.

Heb 1:2 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;

The L-rd has spoken to us through His son, Yeshua. He was there at the creation of the world.

In Genesis 3:8 He, the son, was there. How could a spirit be heard walking in the cool of the day?

Besides the basic meaning that the Father is divine and has no beginning. We have a SON whom is divine and also has no beginning. (This also points to the Tri-unity.)

The Son is described in

John 1:1 as “In the beginning was the Word and Word was with G-d (Father) and the Word (Son) was G-d.

The Son is described as “The Word (Son) became flesh and dwelt among us.” John 1:14

He was the word and the Father created the World through His Son (the Word). (Heb. 1:2, Col. 1:15-19; John 1:3)

Heb 1:3-4 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; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

He is a representation of the Father. Yeshua said in John 14:9, If you see him, you see the Father.

The verse goes on to say that He, Yeshua, purged our sins. Only G-d himself can purge sins.

Isaiah 43:11 I, even I, am the L-RD; and beside me there is no savior.

He is now seated at the right hand of the Father. This is a place of power, authority and honor. It is also the position of subordination, implying that the Son is under the authority of the Father.

Heb 1:5 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?

The writer asks “to which of the angels has the L-rd ever said” and then the he quotes from: Psalms 2:7 I will declare the decree: the L-RD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

This confirms to us that YHWH has a son.

The Jewish people held angels in very high regard as the highest beings next to G-d. The sect of Judaism that had established a community at Qumran (the Essenes) taught that the archangel Michael’s authority rivaled or surpassed that of the Messiah.

Heb 1:6-7 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of G-d worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

The angels are instructed to worship Him.

Heb 1:8-9 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O G-d, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore G-d, even thy G-d, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Yeshua is referred to as G-d and His Messianic kingdom is referred to here.

Heb 1:10-12 And, Thou, L-rd, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; 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.

This is a quote of Ps 102:25-27 the heavens and earth will be renewed (See Rev 21) after the thousand year reign of Messiah.

Everything subject under His feet: Psalms 8:4-6

Heb 1:13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

Ps 110:1 YHWH said unto my lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

David therefore calleth him L-rd, how is He then His son?

In this case L-rd means divine. The L-rd is our redemption from sin and our rock of salvation. (See also Psalm 19:14, 78:35)

Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
