The Exaltation of Jesus in the Epistle to the Hebrews
by David Maas [4 pages]
rated at 1 (out of 5 votes)
The Epistle to the Hebrews presents a consistent picture of the Son of God who was resurrected and exalted to the right hand of God because of his faithful self-sacrifice. The Author of Hebrews bases the present exalted status of the Son not on metaphysical speculations about the Divine nature of the Eternal Son or how the “persons” of the Trinity relate to one another, but rather on the historical events of the obedience, death, resurrection and exaltation of Jesus, the Son “made like unto his brothers and sisters in all ways apart from sin.”
