Hebrews 1:2


Hebrews 1:2
Name: David Lee
Add a little more detail (optional): In my King James Bible, Hebrews 1:2 says this:
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

What is the meaning of "he made the worlds".??
Also in Hebrews 11:3 it says: Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, What is meant by "that the worlds were framed"

The universe came into existence when God spoke, as recorded in Genesis. The evidence for God is all around us, & when we look up.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.


Hebrews 1:2 is also supported by John 1, where it describes Jesus as being the Word. It tells us that it was Jesus who actually created everything. Of course, at the same time, Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit are one. So in Hebrews, it is reaffirming that Jesus was the creator of the world.

As for Hebrews 11:3, it is simply describing the creation. The phrase "the worlds were framed" is another way of saying "that they were designed and placed specifically by."

This word "worlds" in most commonly translated as ever and world, never in the negative and evermore, ages, end and eternal.  Ages would seem to be the most common description of this word.

 

The following verse I believe sums up what this means

 

 

Colossians 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
