People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 1:8


Heb 1:8 But to the Son he saith. The quotation is from Ps 45:6. Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever. Then the Son has an eternal throne, and is divine. A sceptre of righteousness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom. He then has a kingdom, and rules it with a righteous scepter. The point is that he is a Divine King with an eternal throne.

Discussion for Hebrews 1:8

  • Son, the Throne I God the Father have given you at my right side is forever going to be a scepter of righteousness in your, my sons ' kingdom which is everything I, God the Father created. It is not Jesus ' WILL that things be this way it is Gods ' WILL that is going to be Done. Jesus is the WAY, TRUTH, and LIGHT of all the creations of his Father God. Ask yourself, the WAY to where, the TRUTH is the Word of GOD, God is LIGHT. The WAY to GOD the father has to be the answer. Jesus is the Example of how to reach the Father, the Son of the Father God. Keep them separated and show them all three Father, Son, Holy Ghost the respect and reverence they deserve. Just as taught throughout the rest of the TRUTH.
  • Ewere Emmanuel for verse 8
    I don 't even think Jesus is God, i strongly believe and i know that Jesus Is God, the only way to eternal glory
  • DeeperStill for verse 8
    I think the deity of Jesus is the attacked truth in the Bible. I have spent years trying to share this truth online with unbelievers and I must say, the unbelievers are easier to convince of Jesus' Deity, than the religious. Hebrews 8 is clear. God the Father is speaking. He is saying that His Son ( Jesus ) is God. And this is not the only verse which declares this. yet, though they read it, say it, see it, speak it, they refuse to believe it.

    Sadly
  • Simon Monthusi for verse 8
    Jesus Christ is the Lord forever and ever.
  • i think this is clear that Jesus is the Son of God and God himself(God Head).This is one of many scriptures in the bible which supports Jesus is the God
  • Bon Russell for verse 8
    I think that is shows Christ's devinity. That Jesus is God the Son, said so by God the Father. I think this verse and ones like it, make it easy to further understand The Holy Trinity.
