The Epistle to the Hebrews
Biblical Trinity Bible Study Truth
The Christian Trinity in the Bible Quest
Glad you're here to share Daily Bread, and the last of fourteen
letters written by Paul that are included in the New Testament of the
Bible. This epistle from Paul to the Hebrews is a little different
than the others that Paul wrote because as you know, Paul was the
Apostle to the Gentiles, and the Hebrews of course were Jewish
What makes this letter different from the others? Well, mostly, the
recipients. The Hebrews were a people that for more than 1500 years
had been passionately devoted to the Old Testament. It's one thing to
bring the Gospel to the Gentiles, whose religion consisted of
worshiping graven images and no real moral principles at all, but
it's quite another matter to convince the people of the living God
that His Old Covenant was replaced with a New
Covenant, and that Jesus from Nazareth who they crucified was the
Messiah that they had long been waiting for.
This letter is directed to those Jewish believers who became
Christians. As you can well imagine, there would be controversy from
their fellow Israelites who persecuted and crucified Jesus, and Paul,
being an Hebrew, formerly passionately dedicated to Judaism
understood better than anyone, the kind of support the Jewish
Christians needed in the test of their expanding Faith.
Biblical Trinity Bible Study Facts
The Christian Trinity in the Bible Path
Paul begins his letter with an explanation that God's ultimate
prophecy of the Messiah had been delivered in the person of Jesus
Christ, and tells of His authority and holiness as compared to the
1 God, who at sundry [various] times and in divers
[different] manners spake in time past unto the fathers [ancestors]
by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom
He hath appointed Heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds;
I'd like to interrupt here for just a moment. How can that be? Jesus
wasn't even born until 4000 years after Adam, so how could He have
helped God create the world? The answer is this; God, Jesus, and the
Spirit are One, called the Trinity,
so Jesus is part of God. God is infinite, He always was and always
will be, therefore, Jesus always was, and always will be. Also, God
is a Spirit, therefore Jesus also is a Spirit, but He became man. Did
you ever notice that several times in the Gospel, Jesus says that God
"sent" Him to us? The point is, being a Spirit and one with God, He
existed before He was "born" in the flesh, and therefore, He was
'with' God when He made the worlds.
There are many scriptures that prove the Truth of the Trinity. Here
are just a couple that prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that there
is a Trinity:

Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in
secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I:
and now the Lord GOD, and His Spirit, hath sent me.

The Christian Trinity in the Bible Hope
Awesome huh? Not only does Jesus reveal the Truth of the
Christian Holy Trinity by saying The Lord and His Spirit sent me
but shares with us that it has been no secret from the start, He
has existed from the beginning, just as the Apostle John revealed and
that it is He that speaks to us as He is the Word of God (John
1:1 and 1:14).
Now back to Paul's teachings:
[Jesus] Who being the brightness of His [God's] glory, and the
express [exact, precise, specific, explicit] image of His person, and
upholding [obeying] all things by the Word of His power, when He had
by Himself purged [cleansed, erased] our sins, sat down on the right
hand of the Majesty on high:
Let's share a little Daily Bread Crumb here. What is the significance
of sitting on the right hand of God?
Thy right hand is full of righteousness.
I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee,
Fear not; I will help thee.
So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into
Heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of
The right hand was always the place of honor.
Being made so much better than the Angels, as He has by inheritance
obtained a more excellent name than they.
Angels are spiritual beings too, but they weren't always existent
as Jesus was. There are also different rankings of Angels. You can read
about this at:
So, Angels are spiritual beings, and Jesus is a Spiritual being, who
was made flesh, but as part of God. He is superior to all

The Christian Trinity in the Bible Vow
Now Paul talks about the prophecy that he spoke of in the first sentence
of this letter. This prophecy was given through king David.
For unto which of the Angels said He at any time,
And again, when He bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, He saith,
And of the Angels He said,
Paul goes on quoting still more prophecy about the holiness of Christ comparing
His majesty to that of the Angels.
But unto the Son he saith,
But to which of the angels said he at any time,
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them
who shall be heirs of salvation?
Biblical Trinity Bible Study Summary
The Christian Trinity in the Bible Joy
Look at that last verse once again. The Angels are serving spirits,
sent out to take care of those who will be the heirs of salvation.
Who are the heirs of salvation? Christians! Certainly we've all heard
of a Guardian angels, right? Paul just told us, they're for real!
But if we want to know what Paul's point was in all of this, if you
look at the scriptures that he has chosen and compare what the Word
says concerning Angels compared to what it says concerning Jesus, his
point is clear, that Jesus is not an Angel, but much more. And the
Hebrews, who were very avid scripture readers cannot deny that this
comparison is clear.
Very interesting first chapter, wouldn't you say? Hurry back and
we'll dig deeper into this letter from Paul to the Hebrews and see
what else we can learn together, right here at Daily Bread.
