Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 1:5


1:5 Thou art my Son - God of God, Light of Light. This day have I begotten thee - I have begotten thee from eternity, which, by its unalter able permanency of duration, is one continued, unsuccessive day. I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son - I will own myself to be his Father, and him to be my Son, by eminent tokens of my peculiar love The former clause relates to his natural Sonship, by an eternal, inconceivable generation; the other, to his Father's acknowledgment and treatment of him as his incarnate Son. Indeed this promise related immediately to Solomon, but in a far higher sense to the Messiah. #Psa 2:7|; 2Sam 7:14


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 1:5


Heb 1:5 For to which of the angels said he at any time. To none of them did he ever use such language as follows. The style in which the Father addresses Christ shows his superiority to the angels. Thou art my Son. See Ps 2:7. The second Psalm was regarded by the Jews as a prophecy of the Messiah. This day have I begotten thee. What day is referred to in the prophecy? Ac 13:32,33 answers the question by quoting this very passage and declaring that it was fulfilled in the resurrection of Christ from the dead. He was born from the dead and God, who raised him, thus demonstrated that he was his Son. And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? Quoted from 2Sa 7:14. They were spoken originally of David's son Solomon, chosen to be king after him, but he was in a certain sense a type of Christ. The expressions "Son of David" and "Seed of David" while applicable to Solomon, pre-eminently refers to Christ. See Mt 1:1 Mr 10:47 Lu 18:38 Joh 7:42 Ro 1:3 2Ti 2:8.

Discussion for Hebrews 1

    HEBREWS 1:1 GOD who at sundry times and in diverse manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets --1:2-- hath in these last days --- SPOKEN --- unto us by HIS SON whom HE hath appointed heir of all things by whom also he made the worlds
  • Freddieo
    Paul has given us a clear picture of Gods Kingdom!From creation unto the redemption of mankind.All the prophets ,apostles , and promises fulfilled through the word of his power.
    This confession is clear enough for all of us to understand!Remember that his kingdom will reign for ever.In the short time we have on earth, We are in a race, to witness these things and provoke others to believe.
  • Servant of God
    For the love of God, Jesus for his love of righteousness and hatred of iniquity found favor with God. If Jesus purged your sins, why are you still full of iniquity? God has always sent his elect to deal with an untoward people, to enlighten them, not to hand them the keys to heaven. You must earn it! Jesus sits where he sits as the 12 heads of the tribes of Israel praise God continually. Rev.
  • HILLIARD WALKER
    it is exciting to understand the word of God especially in the first two verses of Hebrews chapter 1. it clearly say that before God spoke His word [JESUS] to the prophets instructing them as to what he wanted. Now since Jesus has come as God's only BEGOTTEN son [the voice of God] God no longer instructs because Jesus who is the express image and word of God now speaks. Jesus is the Word of God.
  • Flames of Fire
    He made his angles spirits and his ministers flames of fire. Are your ministets truth tellers or fund raisers? Do you long for righteosness or pretend your already saved. Misinterpreters of scripure or learners precept by precept, a little here a little there. Do you feign rapture or deal with the Heart of the matter, without pretence. My experience with todays Christians. Dig it?
