- In these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, - Hebrews 1:2-3
These statements also qualify Jesus to authenticate all the previous revelations given by God. One, He is the heir of all things. As heir, Jesus has inherited all things, including all authority, from His Father. Thus, heirship necessitates Lordship. Being Lord means Jesus cannot be less than God. Being given all authority implies that as God, He is Lord over all creation. He has the authority to be the final revealer of His Father’s revelation.
Two, Jesus is the One through whom also He made the world. The term world (aiṓn) is better rendered as ages. Through Jesus, the Father made the ages. Genesis 1:1 reveals that the first thing created was time — in the beginning. John 1:1 further establishes that at the beginning of time, Jesus (i.e., the Word) was with God. Each time that the Creation narrative records God said it is communicating to the reader the role of the Son in Creation. Jesus is the Creator of time implies that He is in control of God’s plan and program. The One who controls God’s plan and the program had the authority to reveal it to humanity.
