A brief discussion of Hebrews chapter 1 where the writer is contrasting the risen man Jesus with the angels so that his audience can see the why they should not return to the inferiority of the Law (see Heb 2:2; Ac 7:53; Gal 3:19; Col 2:14-18). God the Father has made Jesus "Lord" seating him on His throne (see Ac 2:33-36; Php 2:9-11), God giving him all authority in heaven and upon the earth (Matt 28:18), God placing all things, including the angels, in subjection to this man (Heb 2:5-9; 1 Peter 3:22). In this way, this man who was lower than the angels has become superior to the angels (Heb 1:4; 2:5-8). He now sits on the throne of YAHWEH (see 1 Chron 29:20-23) and like his fathers David and Solomon who exercised YAHWEH's authority over Israel, he is exercising God the Father's authority over all creation, the authority of THE GOD, "your throne THE GOD." The Father brings His firstborn out of the dead into the oikoumene, the economy of God and his angels in heaven (see Heb 12:22ff.) and because all authority has been given to this man, the angels were placed in subjection to this man by the Father, and they are therefore to bow down before this higher authority: the man Jesus who sits on his Father's throne executing his Father's authority. And he will do this until the last enemy is destroyed (1 Cor 15:24-28).
