Transcript of Recruiting: Scouting the Unknown
He is Greater- Jehovah Elyon
So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
Meets Our Needs- Jehovah Jireh
For such a High Priest was fitting for us, [who is] holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens;
He offers Eternity- El Olam
For every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices. Therefore [it is] necessary that this One also have something to offer.
And Gave his life- Magen
But into the second part the high priest [went] alone once a year, not without blood, which he offered for himself and [for] the people's sins [committed] in ignorance;

-Jesus is the “only begotten Son” (John 3:16)
Different from both angels and man---He is “equal with God” (Philippians 2:6)
-Any teaching that declares Him less than God is heresy.
-If we miss Christ’s deity in the bible, we miss the point.
-Angels worshipping Him verifies His divinity. (Hebrews 1:6)
-“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made” (John 1:3)
-Not only the Creator, but also the Sustainer of the universe.
-“Upholding all things by the word of his power” (Hebrews 1:3)
-Purged all of our sins by dying on the cross.
-Superior communication with humanity than angels.

Matthew 16: 13-17
13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.
Exploring what worship Jesus desires:
-By virtue of His Redemptive Work. (Hebrews 1:3)
-By virtue of His Exaltation, Sonship & Name. (Hebrews 1:4-10)

St John 1:1-4
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
