Jesus is better than any other of God’s revelations to humanity (Hebrews ch.1). He is better than any other member of the human family (ch.2). Jesus is better than Moses, or any of the other prophets (ch.3). Jesus is a better leader than Moses because He takes us to a better rest (ch.4). He is a better High Priest (ch.5), who gives us the better things of salvation (ch.5). Among His gifts, He gives us better blessings, because He has given us a better hope (ch.6). Jesus is the mediator of a better covenant, which is based on better promises (ch.7).
This better covenant is also based on a better sacrifice (ch.9). This ensures Heaven for us, which is better than anything else we can possess (ch.10). Those who possess Heaven will take part in a better resurrection (ch.11). Whatever we have in this life, God has planned something better for us (ch.11) in eternity to come. God has provided a place for us in the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God, our true home (ch.12). This is all possible because the blood of Christ is better and more powerful than anything that we could offer (ch.12).
That’s a summary of the whole book of Hebrews. In every way Jesus is better!
Find a quiet place. Pick a chapter of the book of Hebrews, and prayerfully read through it, asking God to show you some wonderful thing about Jesus.
