Hebrews 1: 4-14.

“To most Jews angels were exalted beings, especially revered because they were involved with giving the law at Sinai to the Jews” (NIV Study Bible). They were the ones to whom “God’s supreme revelation” had been given, but now the attention grabbing claim that they need to grapple with is that Jesus is above the angels. The writer of the letter to the Hebrews has to come up with a solid argument to base such a claim upon, and that’s done by the using the very word of God that had first been given to the Jews. It’s the same for us – we need to know what our solid truth of Jesus as our Lord and Saviour is built upon.
