3:5 “And truly Moses was faithful in all His house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken of after. v.6. But Christ as a Son over His own house; whose house we are, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of hope firm to the end.” In the preceding verses, the writer has shown that Christ is greater than Moses in the same way that the builder of read more
3:3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, just as the one who built the house has more honour than the house. v4. For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. “This man” is the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus, whom the writer has asked us to consider in the first verse of this chapter. The writer has already shown Him to read more
3:2 Who was faithful to Him that appointed Him, as also Moses was faithful in all His house. The writer here is quoting from Numbers 12:7, “My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all My house.” The context of the quoted verse is particularly interesting and relevant to our study.

Although the angels, and even satan, have had access to God’s presence (Job 1:6), none of them has ever been invited to sit down at the r read more
1:10 He also says, ” In the beginning You, O Lord, laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the work of Your hands.” This and the next two verses are a quotation from Psalm 102:25-27. This whole Psalm is a prayer to YHWH, as clearly indicated by verse 1, “Hear my prayer, O LORD; let my cry for help come to You.” Verse 24, which leads into the beginning of this read more
1:7 And about the angels He says, “Who makes His angels spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire. Having established that Christ is the exact representation of the Father, that He is the co-creator and co-sustainer of the universe, and that He has been established as the rightful monarch and heir of all things, the writer now turns his attention briefly to the angels by quoting this verse read more
