In Hebrews, God through the human author writes to some early Christians of Jewish descent who are being persecuted and tempted to escape the persecution through compromise. God wants them to know that Jesus is greater than all the world or anyone in the world. In fact he begins in chapter 1, verse 2 showing that Jesus created the world and is therefore greater. Then beginning in chapter 1, verse 4 (having become as much better that the angels) through chapter 2, he shows that Jesus is greater than the angels. In the beginning of chapter 3, God through the human author shows that Jesus is greater than Moses. Jesus is the greatest and yet “He Himself likewise also partook of the same (flesh and blood), that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. (Hebrews 2:14-15)” The greatest, Jesus, humbled himself to save the least, mankind. Lord, help me never forget that Jesus is the greatest and alone deserves my worship and my life.
