This study in Hebrews chapter 1, was taught by pastor Barry Forder at Calvary Chapel’s family service on 19th January 2020.
In this study, we look at how the writer to the Hebrews begins to show that Jesus is greater than all angels, and all other powers because He has rightfully become the heir of all things – having won back all that was lost in Adam. He is Creator and also Lord of all.
In times past God communicated to us through creation, our conscience and by prophets as they were moved by God to reveal truth and warn of coming judgment. God also used types and shadows, similitudes, to unveil His plan.
But now the veil has been torn in two and God speaks to us directly through His Son. Son-ish is God’s language. This is how He communicates to ‘those who have ears to hear’. The Son is the Word made flesh, and God uses His word to speak. To understand God you need to understand the language He uses to speak to us, and that is His Word.
In these times God chooses to speak through the person of Jesus.
May you be blessed and encouraged by this study.
