References for Hebrews 1:2

    • b 1:2 - See Isa. 2.2. A Hebrew expression, as several here, for the end of the period of law, when Messiah was to be introduced.
    • c 1:2 - Lit. 'in Son.' The absence of the Greek article here is important, though difficult to render in English; the result is, that God, speaking in the prophets, and using them as his mouth, is clearly distinct: 'in Son' is not exactly 'as Son,' because that would be the character of the speaking, yet is perhaps the nearest to an adequate expression. It is God himself who speaks; not by another; not as the Father nor in the person of the Father; not merely by the Holy Spirit using a person not divine, but as himself a divine person, and that person the Son.
    • d 1:2 - A Jewish expression, meaning 'the universe.'
