Christ’s superiority reigns true and strong over the factors of both Heaven’s gates and God’s characters on earth from the past.
This is evident in discussion of the angels; these angels are leading figures under the Old Covenant that has now passed away.
In Hebrews 2, the author writes of exhortation not to ignore the revelation of God in His Son and makes it quite evident in verse 5, “It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking.” Christ, as bearer of the new revelation is superior to angels who had participated in bringing the revelation at Sinai.
At the same time, Jesus was made in a way that was lower than the angels.
Evidently enough, the book of Hebrews begins with explanation of Christ’s superiority to the angels; Hebrews 1:5-14 is scriptural proof of this superiority.
Firstly this is emphatic since to most Jews, angels were exalted beings.The Bible records Jesus as having divine attributes. Jesus also demonstrated His divine attributes, particularly when he demonstrated his omniscience to the woman at the well.In John 4, Jesus approaches a woman and tells her things about her life that He could not have possibly known if He was only human.In the Old Testament, this phrase was used to describe the King of Israel, but in the Gospels it highlights Jesus’ unique relationship with God and for the evangelists it is the preeminent title for Jesus.

Jesus Christ was without a doubt a real, living, breathing human being.His human nature is separate and distinct from His divine nature, yet unified in the person that He is.Jesus also repeatedly refers to Himself as "Son of Man" throughout the gospels -- a claim to both His deity and His humanity. Scripture, however, is very clear that Jesus Christ was both God and man.Evidence of Jesus's deity is found throughout scripture and the records of His life.This is especially revered because they were involved in giving the law at Sinai and to the Jews the law was God’s supreme revelation: “For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation?” God distinguishes the superiority of his Son over angels in the Old Testament, “Rejoice, O nations, with his people, for he will avenge the blood of his servants; he will take vengeance on his enemies and make atonement for his land and people.” This statement, which in the Old Testament refers to the Lord God (Yahweh), is here applied to Christ, giving clear indication of His full deity; the very beings with whom Christ is being compared and commanded to proclaim his superiority by worshipping Him.
