FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:
HEBREWS CHAPTER ONE SUMMARIZED
In fourteen pithy verses of Hebrews chapter 1, Paul introduce us to Christ’s DEITY as the Son of God. In chapter 2 Christ’s incarnate HUMANITY is revealed to us as the Son of man.
“In the first chapter the apostle sets out to prove the deity of Christ, and successfully accomplishes his task. His purpose in writing the book requires him to establish beyond a doubt that Christ IS God. He intends to show that the CEREMONIES that had been instituted by Moses at the command of God [under the ceremonial law of the Mosaic dispensation of the Old Testament time] had been fulfilled and abolished by Christ [when type met antitype and the shadow met its substance].
