Today we begin the book of Hebrews. This book was written by Paul and was meant to present the superiority of Christ to the Hebrew people. Paul starts the book by comparing Christ to the angels and showing His superiority to them. Paul quotes numerous Old Testament scriptures in this first chapter to point to the coming of Jesus Christ the Messiah and why He was the only true Son of God. Paul begins  by quoting Psalm 2:7 in Hebrew 1:5 where he says For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become you Father.” All of the passages quoted by Paul in this first chapter make a very clear case for Christ’s superiority. Through faith we can see the truth and believe.
