“Jesus is Better than the Angels” – Hebrews 1 (Tuesday 8/18/20)

“Jesus is Better than the Angels” – Hebrews 1 (Tuesday 8/18/20)

Paul teaches that Jesus is better than the angels. Angels were highly regarded and were instrumental in bringing the law to Israel (Deuteronomy 33:2, Psalm 68:17, Acts 7:53 and Galatians 3:19) Jesus is better than the angels in many ways: Jesus is the Son of God; Jesus is the begotten Son (Psalm 2:7); Jesus is One with the Father (John 10:30), while the angels were not these things. Jesus is also to be worshipped by people ( Matthew 9:18, 14:33, 15:25, John 4:38, Luke 24:25), while Angels refuse to be worshipped (Revelation 22:8-9). Angels also worship the worthy Lamb (Revelation 5:11-12), which shows Jesus is so much higher than the angels.

We also should point all the glory to Jesus. He is the giver of all gifts. We should refuse also to be worshipped and point the glory back to God. If you are complemented about the work you are doing in the church or elsewhere, you can say “Praise God.”
