Hebrews Chapter 1

As a Christian I am always wrestling to comprehend the trinity… “God in three persons blessed trinity” as the famous hymn “Holy, Holy, Holy” proclaims. 

Here in Hebrews chapter 1 of the new testament the author gives us some insight into the relationship between God the Father and God the Son.  He actually recites verses from the old testament and from the new testament where God the Father speaks of his Son.  Verses 8 and 9 particularly caught my attention where I believe God the Father refers to Jesus as God, “therefore O’ God, your God has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than anyone else”.  Over the years I have grown to appreciate that without God in three persons I likely would not know God at all.  That it takes all three to reach me.  I love the emphasis that Catholic Christians put on the trinity, crossing themselves in the name of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

But as with the new testament in its’ entirety and possibly the bible in its’ entirety, I see this chapter as God the Father glorifying Jesus, God the Son.
