God's Full And Final Revelation In The Son

2 at the end of these days has spoken to us in the person of the Son, whom he has established heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 who being the effulgence of his glory and the expression of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, having made by himself the purification of sins, set himself down on the right hand of the greatness on high, 4 taking a place by so much better than the angels, as he inherits a name more excellent than they.
