    Yes to all, Nick.

    But human prophets are “malakim” in the Hebrew, and “aggelos” in the Greek.  So are spirit messengers of God.

    The word simply means “messenger”, Nick.  So consider this scripture translated as it should be:

    Hebrews 1:4
    So he became as much superior to the messengers as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.

    Nick, how can Jesus BE a messenger and be superior to them at the same time?

    Surely the word “OTHER” is implied, right?  As in “superior to the OTHER messengers”?

    Just like in the 2 Kings scripture I just quoted for you.  Which is why many translators have added the word OTHER into that verse, since that is what is clearly implied.

    hi MB,
    So all prophets are angels?
    Jesus the great prophet messenger is above the angels so why are you confused.

    Or is dogma defence more important to you than what is written?

    Hi MB,
    Why does the fact that Jesus is a prophet and a messenger prevent him from being higher than the angels?

    If he was an angel he could not be, not the other way around.

    I did in the other thread. Why have the same discussion in two threads at the same time? (Actually three threads, if you count Pre-existence.)

    if the knowledge that we know is from another source than the scriptures then that knowledge is not useful ,because it will not bring true understanding ,the understanding in a pure heart, is different than that from a pre -opinionated or selective mind and heart,

    Hi,
    Knowing about God is nothing compared with knowing Him.

    Hi WU,
    You have got it all wrong.
    Jesus said
    ” the words I speak to you, they are Spirit and are life”

    But instead you say they are just KNOWLEDGE

    Wake up

    Nick.

    Knowing Christ is having knowledge of Christ;
    is life.
    Not having knowledge is just groping in the dark.
    Because there is no light.
    One will fall into a pit/snare;set up by the deceiver.

    wakeup.

    Nick.

    That is just it.

    The sad thing is that:
    Luke 10:22 All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son,
    ***and he to whom the Son will reveal him***.

    wakeup.
