THE BOOK OF HEBREWS CHAPTER 1:2-5 (2 of 24)
>> Christ Jesus is better than the prophets because:
- He is the supreme SPOKESMAN for God, vs. 1, Hath in
these last days spoken unto us by his Son
- He is the appointed HEIR OF ALL THINGS, vs. 2, whom
he hath appointed heir of all things
- He is the CREATOR AND MAKER OF THE WORLDS, vs. 2, by
whom also he made the worlds
- He is the very GLORY OF GOD, the Father, vs. 3, Who
being the brightness of his glory,
Jesus Christ perfectly reflects the majesty of God.
The word, “being,” as it relates to Jesus Christ in

because He is God, the Son. Jesus Christ is the living
doxology of the Father as He glorified the Father when
He tabernacled among men, and in the eternal glory
that He has shared with the Father from all eternity.

[then], Shew us the Father?
10. Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and
the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I
speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in
me, he doeth the works.
And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self
with the glory which I had with thee before the world
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given
me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my
glory, wh ...
