Hebrews 1:1-2 (NIV)
1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.I think one thing that we can take away from this passage is that The Son is not a prophet. Even though it says that God speaks "through" Jesus as he does "through" the prophets. This scripture clearly places him in a different category to the prophets. Yet it also likens him to one.
- Jesus is more than just a prophet - he is God
- Jesus was "appointed" - i.e. there was a time before he was begotten
- Jesus made the universe
- When Jesus speaks, God speaks directly
