Jesus Is Superior In Every Way (Hebrews 1:1-14)Mike Bucher, 10/28/2018
We begin the book of Hebrews...
It was a time when most of the Christians were former Jews. They were being pressured by Jews to turn back to the law of Moses and away from faith alone in Jesus. All Christians are saved "from" something "unto" Christ.
There are former atheists, Muslims, Hindus, those living by philosophy of man - some are caught up in "the world" or sexual sin or drugs or alcohol. Jesus calls us to Himself but sometimes we are pressured to go back to our past.
The book of Hebrews compares all they had in Judaism under the law with what we now have in Jesus. Jesus is superior in every way. Nothing and no one compares to Him. This can't be done with any other system of beliefs.
The evidence for Jesus (miracles, resurrection, prophecy) goes beyond all else. Knowing and following Jesus surpasses them all. Jesus goes beyond man's philosophy, He goes beyond religion. Jesus said He is the WAY, the TRUTH, the LIFE. He is above all, He created all, He holds all together. He will someday reign over all.
Jesus made the only way to eternal life by laying His life down on the cross for us all. Why would anyone ever want to go backwards - away from Him? Many of His followers did turn away even while He walked on the earth. He asked His disciples - "will you also go away"?
Peter nails it by saying "where shall we go? You have the words of eternal life and we are sure that you are the Christ the Son of God". This is where we need to be and to stay no matter how hard it gets. The book of Hebrews will show us this.

1God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3Who 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 on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 6And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. 7And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. 8But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 10And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: 11They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; 12And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. 13But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? 14Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? (KJV)
