Seven Statements about the Son


in Hebrews 1:2b-3.  (Keep in minds, too, that these come right after the author to Hebrews tells us that the Son is the culmination of God’s revelation and right before he tells us that the Son is better than the angels.)

  1. Christ is the heir of all things.
  2. Christ created the world.
  3. Christ is the radiance of the glory of God.
  4. Christ is the exact imprint of God’s nature.
  5. Christ upholds the universe by the word of his power.
  6. Christ made purification for sins.
  7. Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
I think each one of these statements is worthy of a short post of its own, don’t you?

Calvin (the & Hobbes one, not John), said, "The Days are Just Packed." His days have nothing on Scripture. It is astonishing how "packed" some short passages are, isn't it?

Our Bible study group has been doing 1 Jn. 4-5 for weeks now, and there are few irrelevant rabbit trails.

I'm looking forward to the series!

Well, I posted the first one, and it's over 1000 words long. One thousand words on seven words, so I'd say Martin and Terry nailed it with their comments.
