14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
Yesterday we read how the author of Hebrews argued for the supremacy of Christ above everything else including the angles. In today’s verse the author brings this claim to a close, by drawing a comparison between Jesus’ status versus the angles’ nature and their role. We read in the preceding verse (v.13) Jesus’s status and in verse 14 we read the ministerial role of the angels. The writer of Hebrews isn’t disclaiming the importance of the law, prophets or the role of angels, rather he is asserting they all played a part in God’s message, but Jesus is now the Good News. He is the one who saves. He is the one who should be first in our lives. The rest is all secondary (Con)
