Here is where our text picks up today. When we look at the Christ - God the Son - we are looking at a divine person of a different order than all the angelic beings. And the way our writer proves this is important to us because he focuses exclusively on the Jewish Scriptures.
This matters because - remember - our text is written to Jewish believers. They seem to be having a hard time not being pulled back into Judaism. Perhaps they are victims of false teachers. We know there were plenty of them. Are they having second thoughts? Is persecution wearing them down?
So our writer wants these Jewish believers to know he is not making up some new religion. Their present faith is not in contradiction to their revered prophets. The Christ didn't arrive from nowhere. Their own prophets longed to see what they were seeing in the Incarnation, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus. And the Father's final revelation in God the Son is too important to dessert.
