  • The Supremacy of_Christ 1414

    1. 1. • ...Is seen over the angels, and all creation. Hebrews 1:4-14• Angels were an important part of the Hebrew religion. Deut. 33:2; Psalm 68:17; Acts 7:53• Let us look at how Christ is supreme and therefore much better than the angels.
    2. 2. Jesus is The “Son”• Two prophecies show the Messiah as Son. – Jehovah calls Messiah, “My Son”… Ps. 2:7; Acts 13:33; Romans 1:4 – In 2 Samuel 7:14a there is an immediate application to Solomon. • But the Messiah would also descend from David and would receive the ultimate throne and kingdom. Mt. 1:1; Mark 10:47; John 7:42• But no angel is ever called “My son”.
    3. 3. Jesus is the “Firstborn,” Who Receives Worship• Jesus is described as the “firstborn”.• This term here means first in priority/importance, not born first. – God used this term to describe Israel over the world. Exodus 4:22 – Used by God to refer to David the youngest of eight. Psalm 89:20, 27 – It is used of Jesus to stress His preeminence over creation. Colossians 1:15-18
    4. 4. Jesus is the “Firstborn,” Who Receives Worship• When Jesus came into the world the angels were to worship Him. Heb. 1:6 – Angels refused to be worshiped – Rev. 22:8-9 – Peter refused worship. Acts 10:25-26• Yet, Jesus received worship. – Mt. 2:11; 8:2; 9:18; 14:33; 15:25; Jn. 9:38; Mt. 28:9, 17; Luke 24:52• Jesus is worthy of worship, because He is…
    5. 5. Jesus is God Enthroned and Anointed• Angels are simply for the service of God. Heb. 1:14, 7• But the Son is God Himself, enthroned and anointed! Psalm 45:6-7; Heb. 1:8, 3a – We note the deity of Jesus.• He reigns over an everlasting kingdom with righteousness. Daniel 2:44; Luke 1:33, 26 – Paul and John wrote about this kingdom. Col. 1:13; Rev. 1:9; Heb. 1:9; 2:11; 3:1
    6. 6. Jesus is the “Lord” Who is the Eternal Creator!• Jesus is Yahweh, “Jehovah”! Ps. 102:25-27• This Psalm uses God’s covenant name and applies it here to Jesus. Exodus 3:13-14; Heb. 1:9• Jesus is the Eternal Creator. He created everything in the beginning. Heb. 1:10, 2c – John and Paul write about this… John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17• He is also eternal and unchangeable. Heb. 1:11-12; 2 Peter 3:10-12; Heb. 13:8
    7. 7. Jesus is the “Sovereign”• No angel is invited to sit at God’s right hand.• But Jesus the Son is invited. Heb. 1:13-14; Psalm 110:1 – This refers to Christ’s Messianic reign. Hebrews 1:3; Acts 2:34-36; 1 Peter 3:22• Angels are but ministering spirits. Heb. 1:14• They minister for those who will inherit salvation. Lk. 1:11-38; Mt. 13:36-43;18:10• Very forcefully the Hebrews writer has shown that Jesus is superior to the angels.
