The Eight Excellencies of Christ (Hebrews 1:1-3)

Nativity scenes pepper the landscape of our country.  For many, this is the only time any of us focus on the Christ — and because we are so visually stimulated, Christ remains a weak infant.  But this is an excellent time to look and see who Jesus is from eternity’s perspective.

  1. God speaks through ultimately and fully through Christ (Micah 5:1-4; John 4:25).
  2. Christ is the heir of all things (Psalm 2:7-8; Hebrews 2:5-9).
  3. Christ is an agent of creation (Genesis 1:27-28; Colossians 1:15-17).
  4. Christ is the radiance of God’s glory (John 1:18; John 8:12; 2 Corinthians 4:4).
  5. Christ is the exact imprint of his nature (Colossians 1:15; Colossians 2:9).
  6. Christ upholds all by His Word (Jude 24-25).
  7. Christ makes purification for sins (Hebrews 9:12-14; 1 Peter 1:18-19).
  8. Christ completed everything necessary (Hebrews 10:12; Ephesians 2:4-6).
