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.

  • Emilyn Luithle
    I never read that Lord Jesus said that He is God. He had been saying My Father. So I concluded that He is s true Man and God gave him a special power to redeem us. But deep in my heart I am not really happy. So I prayed that God give an answer to my question. Suddenly I read the Hebrews 1. I have always encountered this chapter but never understood the deep meaning. Thanks God for the answer. Amen

    Snoopy "but not really the same as the Father,but that he was created by the Father" Are you referring to Paul in this statement or Jesus?
  • Snoopy
    The letter, probably written by Barnabas, Paul's companion talks of Jesus' stature in the heaven world, his sublime creation by the Father, higher than the angels but not really the same as the Father in that he was created by the Father, and assured of his heights in the heavens by righteousness on earth. The Father has always emphasized righteousness steadfastly as the way to his mercy. Love..

    A Brilliant conversation between God and his Son Jesus, who now sits at the right hand of his Father, verse 3
  • Dennis
    It is obvious that one commentor is trying to prove his belief that The Lord Jesus Christ is not Himself truly God. There is none so blind as he who will not see. I could quote many many scriptures which validate his co-eternality with the Father and Spirit. I think it better to leave you with the Lord's following admonition: If ye believe not that I am He, ye shall perish in your sins.
