Knijga O Kristu

Hebrejima 1:1-14

Isus Krist je Božji Sin

1Bog je nekoć više puta i na mnoge načine govorio našim precima kroz proroke. 2Ali u ove zadnje dane nama je progovorio kroz svojega Sina. Njega, po kojemu je sve stvorio, postavio je za baštinika svega. 3Sin je odsjaj Božje slave i otisak njegova Bića. On održava svemir snagom svoje silne riječi. Pošto je umro da nas očisti od grijeha, sjeo je na počasno mjesto, zdesna veličanstvenome Bogu u nebu.

Isus je uzvišeniji od anđela

4To pokazuje da je Božji Sin mnogo uzvišeniji od anđela, kao što je i ime koje je baštinio uzvišenije od njihovih imena. 5Jer kome je od anđela ikada rekao:

“Ti si moj Sin,

danas sam ti postao Ocem”1:5 Psalam 2:7.,

i još:

“Ja ću mu biti Otac,

a on će meni biti Sin”1:5 2 Samuelova 7:14.?

6A kada je predstavio svojeg prvorođenca svijetu, Bog je rekao:

“Klanjajte mu se, svi anđeli Božji!”1:6 Ponovljeni zakon 32:43.

7Za anđele kaže:

“On čini svoje anđele vjetrovima

i sluge poput ognjenih plamenova.”1:7 Psalam 104:4.

8Ali za svojega Sina kaže:

“Tvoje kraljevstvo, o Bože, traje zauvijek.

Ti vladaš žezlom pravednosti.

9Ti ljubiš pravednost i mrziš nepravednost.

Zato te je, Bože, tvoj Bog, pomazao

uljem radosti više nego ijednoga tvojeg druga.”1:8-9 Psalam 45:7-8.

10I još:

“Gospodine, u početku si postavio temelje zemlji

i nebesa su djelo tvojih ruku.

11Čak će i ona nestati,

ali ti ostaješ zauvijek.

12Smotat ćeš ih poput starog kaputa

i nestat će kao stara odjeća.

Ali ti si uvijek isti;

tvojim godinama nema svršetka.”1:10-12 Psalam 102:26-28.

13Bog nikada nije nekom anđelu rekao:

“Sjedni mi s desne strane

dok ti ne bacim pod noge tvoje neprijatelje.”1:13 Psalam 110:1.

14Jer anđeli su samo poslužnički duhovi koje Bog šalje služiti onima koji će baštiniti spasenje.

New International Version

Hebrews 1:1-14

God’s Final Word: His Son

1In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2but 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. 3The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.

The Son Superior to Angels

5For to which of the angels did God ever say,

“You are my Son;

today I have become your Father”1:5 Psalm 2:7?

Or again,

“I will be his Father,

and he will be my Son”1:5 2 Samuel 7:14; 1 Chron. 17:13?

6And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says,

“Let all God’s angels worship him.”1:6 Deut. 32:43 (see Dead Sea Scrolls and Septuagint)

7In speaking of the angels he says,

“He makes his angels spirits,

and his servants flames of fire.”1:7 Psalm 104:4

8But about the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;

a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.

9You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;

therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions

by anointing you with the oil of joy.”1:9 Psalm 45:6,7

10He also says,

“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth,

and the heavens are the work of your hands.

11They will perish, but you remain;

they will all wear out like a garment.

12You will roll them up like a robe;

like a garment they will be changed.

But you remain the same,

and your years will never end.”1:12 Psalm 102:25-27

13To which of the angels did God ever say,

“Sit at my right hand

until I make your enemies

a footstool for your feet”1:13 Psalm 110:1?

14Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
