Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets.
But now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he made the universe and everything in it.
The Son reflects God's own glory, and everything about him represents God exactly. He sustains the universe by the mighty power of his command. After he died to cleanse us from the stain of sin, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God of heaven.
This shows that God's Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is far greater than their names.
