Reflections from Pastor Quincy

I have recently begun preaching on the book of Hebrews! Which will probably take me till I retire or die to finish. As you may know, verses 1-3 are perhaps the greatest beginning to a book of the Bible. My translation follows: "In the past, God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways. But in these last days, He has spoken to us by SON, whom He appointed the heir of all things and through whom he created existence itself. The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of His True Character, bearing the very weight of reality itself on the power of His Word."

 

Listen to this description from Cockerill's NICNT commentary on this passage, beautifully said:

"In these opening lines, the pastor seeks to impress upon his hearers the inexhaustible greatness of the Son of God, so that they will attend to God's ultimate self-manifestation with obedience and deepening understanding."  May I so attend!
