8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:

11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;

12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

- Hebrews 1:8-14 KJV

 In Hebrews, The Compelling Story 

"Of God, His Son and His Angles"


March 4, 2024


Reverend Danny Rhoades

Greetings, my fellow Brothers and Sisters. In today’s devotional, I shall delve into the KJV Bible, and tell you the story of the book of Hebrews a compelling narrative that delves into the nature of God, the incarnation of His Son, and the role of heavenly beings in the divine plan. This epistle, attributed to an unknown author, offers profound insights into the character of God, the supremacy and humanity of Jesus Christ, and the significance of angels in the spiritual realm. Through its rich teachings on redemption, faith, and endurance, Hebrews illuminates the superiority of Christ's sacrifice and the eternal priesthood He embodies. Join me on a journey through the captivating 


story of God, His Son, and the angelic hosts as we explore the themes of salvation, the new covenant, and the enduring faith that sustains believers in the face of trials.

Hebrews is like that intriguing novel you can’t put down, except it’s not fiction—it’s all about God, His Son, and a bunch of angels. Written by an anonymous but clearly talented author, this book is a deep dive into the faith that will make you ponder, reflect, and maybe even scratch your head a few times.

Imagine a mysterious author dropping a theological bombshell without even leaving their signature. That’s the situation with Hebrews. While we may not know who penned it, we do know they had serious knowledge of the Jewish sacrificial system and a knack for quoting the Old Testament.

Hebrews wasn’t written just for kicks—it had a job to do. The author wanted to give Jewish Christians a reality check on who Jesus really is and what His sacrifice meant for them. This book was basically a spiritual pep talk for those facing persecution and doubting their faith.

Alright, let’s talk about the big guy upstairs. God in Hebrews is like the ultimate superhero—He’s all-powerful, all-knowing, and not someone you want to mess with.

God’s the boss, plain and simple. He’s the one calling the shots, holding the universe together, and basically being the ultimate mic-drop deity.

When God says something, you better believe it’s gonna happen. Hebrews is all about how God keeps His promises, no matter what—He’s like that one friend who never flakes on you.

Now, onto Jesus—He’s not just any dude. In Hebrews, Jesus is portrayed as God’s right-hand man, the top dog, the Son of God who came down to party with us mortals.

Jesus isn’t just some ordinary Joe. He’s like God’s VIP, sitting at the cool kids’ table in heaven, with all the angels giving him high-fives.

Jesus wasn’t satisfied with just hanging out in heaven—he wanted to get down and dirty with us humans. So, he put on his humanity suit and came to Earth to save the day. Talk about a hero complex.

Angels may not be the main characters in Hebrews, but they sure do know how to steal the spotlight when they need to. These heavenly beings play a crucial supporting role in the grand story of God and His Son.

Angels are like the heavenly assistants, always ready to swoop in and help out us mere mortals. They’re basically the guardian angels you wish you had, but cooler.

Turns out, angels aren’t just sitting around playing harps all day. In Hebrews, they’re shown as key players in God’s plan, working alongside Jesus to bring salvation and keep the show running smoothly. So, next time you in the book of Hebrews, we see a compelling narrative centered around themes of redemption and salvation. 

One of the key highlights in Hebrews is the superiority of Christ's sacrifice compared to the sacrifices of the Old Testament. His sacrifice is deemed as the ultimate atonement for sins, making a powerful statement about the magnitude of his love for humanity. 

Hebrews beautifully communicates the concept of finding rest in Christ's finished work on the cross. Believers are called to trust in the completeness of Christ's sacrifice, knowing that through him, they can find peace and salvation. 

Hebrews also emphasizes the importance of faith and endurance, especially during times of trials and challenges. 

The book encourages believers to persevere in their faith, even when faced with difficulties and uncertainties. It points to the faithfulness of God and the reward that comes from enduring with faith. 

Amidst trials, Hebrews provides words of encouragement and strength, reminding readers of the hope and assurance found in their faith in God. It serves as a source of inspiration for believers to keep pressing on, knowing that their faith will see them through. 

Hebrews draws comparisons with the Old Testament Law to illustrate the fulfillment and superiority found in Christ and the New Covenant. 

The book portrays Christ as the fulfillment of the Law, showing how he embodies and surpasses the requirements of the Old Testament, bringing a new way of grace and redemption. 

Hebrews highlights the superiority of the New Covenant established through Christ, emphasizing the grace, mercy, and eternal promises found in this new relationship with God. It showcases a higher and more profound way of connecting with God compared to the Law of Moses. 

At the core of Hebrews is the profound representation of Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice for sin and the eternal High Priest

Hebrews magnifies Jesus as the perfect sacrifice for sin, pointing to the completeness and efficacy of his atonement on the cross. His sacrifice is depicted as the ultimate solution for the redemption and forgiveness of sins. 

Jesus is portrayed as the eternal High Priest in Hebrews, interceding on behalf of believers before God. This representation showcases his ongoing ministry of reconciliation and his eternal role in bridging the gap between humanity and God.

Brothers and Sisters now let's review what we just learned, from today's devotional.

1. Authorship of Hebrews: The authorship of Hebrews remains a mystery. While many scholars have debated the identity of the author, Hebrews is unique in lacking a majority consensus on who wrote it. Various conjectures have been made, including attributing it to the Apostle Paul (who authored at least thirteen New Testament books) or Priscilla, a friend of Paul’s who accompanied him during part of his ministry. Despite the uncertainty, the book of Hebrews holds a significant place in Scripture, and its inclusion in the canon reflects its spiritual value, even with an unknown author.

2. Portrayal of Jesus Christ: The book of Hebrews masterfully presents Jesus as both the eternal Son of God and the exalted Son who reigns over all creation. In Hebrews 1, Jesus is portrayed as the uncreated eternal Son, existing before time began. The Father addresses the Son personally, emphasizing their distinct yet unified roles. Jesus is the radiance of God’s glory, bearing the full divine nature. His work surpasses that of angels, and He is the ultimate fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies. Hebrews underscores Jesus’ deity and humanity, showing how He perfectly fulfills the law and offers salvation to all who believe.

3. Role of Angels in Hebrews: Angels play a significant role in the narrative of Hebrews. While they are spirit-messengers sent by God, their primary purpose is to serve those who are going to be saved. Hebrews contrasts Jesus with angels, emphasizing His superiority. The Father never said to any angel, “Sit at my right hand,” as He did to Jesus. Angels serve God’s purposes, but Jesus, as the divine King, holds a unique position. The book highlights the distinction between angels and the exalted Son, emphasizing Jesus’ preeminence.

4. Themes of Redemption and Salvation: The book of Hebrews explores essential themes related to redemption and salvation:

Redemption: In Old Testament times, temporary redemption involved animal sacrifices to cover sin. However, Jesus, the promised Messiah, provided the ultimate blood sacrifice, permanently removing sin. His death and resurrection redeemed us, setting us free from sin.

Salvation: Jesus’ name itself means “salvation.” Through His work, we are saved from the eternal consequences of sin. By believing in Him, we receive eternal life and cross over from death to life. Salvation is a central theme, emphasizing Christ’s role as our eternal High Priest and the way to be cleansed and liberated.

In summary, Hebrews beautifully reveals Jesus’ deity, humanity, and supremacy, while also addressing angels’ roles and exploring redemption and salvation. It remains a powerful and transformative book in the New Testament.

In conclusion, the book of Hebrews stands as a timeless testament to the unfailing love and grace of God, the unparalleled sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and the unwavering support of the angelic realm in God's divine plan. As we reflect on the profound truths and exhortations found within its pages, may we be inspired to cling to our faith, endure in trials, and rest in the finished work of our High Priest, Jesus Christ. Let the message of Hebrews continue to resonate in our hearts, guiding us towards a deeper understanding of God's redemptive plan and a steadfast hope in the promises He has revealed.
