Scholars debate the authorship of Hebrews. Although we don’t know who wrote Hebrews, it contains some of the most profound words in the Scriptures. Hebrews focuses on the greatness of the Lord Jesus Christ.
“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.” (NKJV)
The Prologue of Hebrews demonstrates how God, in many different ways, revealed Himself in the past. Today, He has revealed Himself through His Son. Jesus, heir of all things, Creator, the exact representative of God, and the One who upholds all things by His word, is the One we are to listen to and follow today. Having made purification for sins, Jesus is exalted above all.
The words of Jesus are words of life (see Jn. 6:68). His words are words of abundance (see Jn. 10:10). As Christians, our confidence is in the One, Jesus, who has been exalted. Strength, refuge, and purpose are found in Him. Will we listen to Him today?
