Jesus and Angels

And to which of the angels has he (God) ever said,
“Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?

(Hebrews 1:13, ESV)

The author of Hebrews continues his argument throughout chapter one and quotes from Psalm 110:1 in Hebrews 1:13.  The enthronement of the Son in 1:3 is used to set up the discussion about Jesus’ position in relation to the angels.  The supremacy of Jesus over angels is addressed in verse 13, which is in the form of a question.  The author points out that God has never set an angel at his right hand.  That position at his right hand is reserved for his Son.  Jesus’ enthronement elevates him to a position above that of the angels.  The heavenly rule of Jesus is also a significant part of Hebrews 1, particularly in verses 8-9.
