PREFACE
 
History has many who in some way earned the name great. They did things thatmotivated people to add great to their first name, such as Alexander the Great, Herodthe Great, and Catherine the Great. But nowhere in history has the name greatest beenadded to a name. Many have become the greatest in certain categories, such as thegreatest mountain climber, the greatest runner, the greatest artist of a certain period, thegreatest mind, the greatest scientist, and the greatest in numerous areas of achievement.But none have been called Alexander the Greatest, or Einstein the Greatest. This makessense, for no person can be called the greatest until history is over, for no matter howgreat a person has been in any area of life, someone might come along and be greater yet.Nobody has, nor can, attain to the heights of being worthy of the name Greatest. No one,that is, but Jesus. He alone is worthy of the name Jesus the Greatest, for He alone hasattained a level beyond which it is impossible to go. No one in the past, and no one in thefuture can be greater than Jesus, and that is the point of the book of Hebrews. It is amessage so stressed in the first three verses that there is no place in the Bible whereJesus is more exalted than in these verses. The highest Christology you will findanywhere is right here in verses 2 and 3 of this first chapter of Hebrews. Before we lookat what they say about Jesus being the greatest lets look at an introduction to the book asa whole, which I call God’s Greatest Commercial.
INTRODUCTION
GOD’S GREATEST COMMERCIAL Introduction to HebrewsThe book of Hebrews could be called God’s Greatest Commercial. Commercials aredesigned to tell people that their product is the best. It is better than what you are now using,and so switch to what is better. This whole book is saying switch to Jesus, come back to Jesus,or never leave Jesus, for he is superior to all others. He is better than the angels in heavenand the priesthood on earth. He is the best, and so why give yourself to the lesser? Likecommercials this book does a lot of comparing of values in order to show that Jesus is better.All products claim they are better than their competitors, and that is what Jesus is, the bestof what God has given. He is the final product and the most improved of all God has given toman. Competition is a major issue in life, for there is so much calling for our time andcommitment, and we need to be able to choose the best and give it priority in our lives, andthat priority goes to Jesus if we listen to this book.This book is very judgmental in that it says all other persons and values are not as good asJesus. They may have been okay before Jesus, but now that he has come and finished thework of atonement, there is nothing better. He is the best, and it is time to switch from whatyou are now exalting to the highest level and put Jesus there. If you think your soap is good,now is the time to use Jesus for he gets all things whiter, for even your soul needs to becleansed from the stains of sin. There is none better. God gave much good in the OldTestament, but now we have the new and improved offer of forgiveness by a better way.
 
The commercial often says come now, call now, buy now. There is urgency about themessage, and so it is here, for now is the time of salvation, and we must not wait, or driftfrom it or neglect it. Someone has put together this outline that shows the whole book isdesigned to promote that Jesus is better.Jesus - The New And Better Deliverer - Ch. 1-71. Jesus the God-Man - better than angels - (Ch. 1-2)2. Jesus the new Apostle - better than Moses - (Ch. 3)3. Jesus the new Leader - better than Joshua - (Ch. 4:1-13)4. Jesus the new Priest - better than Aaron - (Ch. 4:14- 7)B. Calvary - The New And Better Covenant - Ch. 8 - 10:18)1. New covenant has better promises - (8:6-13)2. And it has a better sanctuary- (9:1-14)3. And it has a better sacrifice - (9:15-18)4. And it achieves far better results - (10:1-18)I have put this list together of how Jesus is better just in this first chapter. Like any goodcommercial, it shows us that Jesus is better than all who have gone before Him.Better Messenger-the SonBetter than prophetsBetter than angelsBetter power source-the king of universeBetter name than angelsBetter relation to the FatherBetter in permanenceBetter joy v. 9Better victory that is complete v. 13Another list I have put together shows how these first few verses exalt the superiority of Jesus.1. He is superior as a spokesman.2. He is superior as a son.3. He is superior in status. Heir4. He is superior as source. Creator of all5. He is superior in splendor.6. He is superior in substance. Exact replica of Father7. He is superior as sustainer.8. He is superior as sacrifice.9. He is superior as sovereign.Advertising is an over 100 billion dollar a year industry and affects all of us throughoutour lives. We are each exposed to over 2000 ads a day, constituting perhaps the most
