Today’s Reading | Hebrews 1
Who is Jesus Christ?
If someone at in your unit asked you who Jesus Christ is, what would you tell him? The book of Hebrews was written to clearly communicate who He is and what He has done. In today’s reading, we see that Jesus Christ is superior to every living thing. Specifically, He is superior to angels. Verses one through three teach us that Jesus Christ is God. He is the exact representation of God. The word “representation” translated here means that He is equal to God in every way. He radiates the glory of God because He is totally God in every way. He is, therefore, not like the angels. He is not a higher form of an angel. He is superior to angels in every way because He is totally God. The book of Hebrews further demonstrates this truth by showing us that the Father talks to Jesus in ways He has never used to speak to angels. We see also that angels are not to be worshiped, but Jesus Christ is. Angels do not rule on thrones, but Jesus Christ does. Jesus Christ will never change or fail us. He alone, not angels, is to be worshiped and adored. Since angels are a common topic of conversation today, use the opportunity to share Christ?
