Hebrews 1:3 may be the key to the book. Read through that. One thing I do know about Hebrews is that it is about “better.” Do a search for that word in Hebrews at Bible gateway and you will see what I mean.
Chapter one shows Christ as better than the angels. But look at what Hebrews 1:3 says about Him, He is:
- The radiance of God’s glory
- The exact representation of His nature
- The one who upholds all things by His word.
- The writer says that He sat down.
Secondly, the text says, “He sat down.” This is the first of four references to Christ sitting down, Hebrews 1:13, 10:12; 12:2, are the others. The point is that Christ’s work is finished. In contrast to the priests of the old covenant who stood daily to offer sacrifice, Christ’s sacrifice is complete. There is no need for Him to stand any longer. His work is complete and in Colossians 2:9 – 10, we are told that His work completed us.
That is an overwhelming picture of His supreme sufficiency.
