Bible commentary

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

  • 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?
  • Charley
    the lord jesus christ is GOD john 8-58, isaiah 9-6, hohn 20-28, john14-6, john10-30
    emmanuel means god with us i could show you many other passages,colossions 2-9
    repent emmilyon and bow to the lordship of jesus christ for your salvation,you
    are a doubting thomas or maybe in some false religion or cult
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Amen, God and Father of Jesus turned the show over to his Son Jesus in Hebrews 1:1-4. What Christians of the hour get bewitched and stumble at is verse 8. They do not read verse 9. Verse 8 is the fulfilling of Isaiah 6:9. "His name shall be called the mighty God" NOT "My name" NOT the Almighty God and Father the mighty God all power was passed from Father to Son. Pronouns =hishehim VS Imemy
  • Owen James
    Hebrews 1:13 - But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? (Believe it and Receive it Brethren right now in Jesus name)
  • Tammy Shelton
    I enjoyed Hebrews chapter 1. Because our bible study class starts reading
  • A disciple
    "For unto which of the angels said HE at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?" Yet for every Scripture which plainly says one thing; they refuse to receive correction; but rather hold fast deceit; as it is written, "..the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people.." condemned of themselves!
