11 February 2019 – Hebrews 1:6 (NIV)

Scripture

And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says,

“Let all God’s angels worship him.”

Reflection

In the first couple of verses of chapter 1 the author of Hebrews has proved that the gospel supersedes the law and that Jesus Christ is above the prophets. He then continues by addressing an obvious objection that some of the Jewish zealots would make by asserting the law was not delivered by men, but ordained by angels (Gal. 3:19), since the scripture has always represented the angels as the most excellent of all creatures including man. But in the wake of this fact, the author continues to state in verses 5-14, that Jesus Christ is even loftier that the angels and that even the angles will worship him. Through this description, the author is expressing and proving that Christ is not only superior to the angels but he is also challenging what or whom the listeners place at the center of their lives (Con)
