1 In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
The author of Hebrews (St. Paul or someone else) has an inspired grasp of who Jesus is. “Who, being the brightness of His glory and the expressed image of His passion, was upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had, by himself, purged our sings, sat down on he Majesty on high.” This passage was in harmony with a similar high assessment of Jesus as found in Col 1: 15-19.
