Oct. 28. Christ, Superior to Angels Is our Authority

Heb. 1:1-14

The writer to the Hebrews began his letter without any introduction, telling them that God had dealt with His people in various ways through the prophets in the past. That had all changed since the establishment of the church at the beginning of the “last days.” His Son, Christ had divine authority to be His Spokesman.

Christ was qualified to speak for God because He was the heir of all things; through Him God made the worlds; made in God’s image, He reflected God’s glory; gave Himself for the sins of man; and is seated at the right hand of God.

Even though angels are powerful beings as they serve in the work of God, they cannot compare to the majesty of Christ. The Hebrews writer quoted various Old Testament Scriptures as he pointed out the superiority of Christ to angels.
