Christ as "the very image" of God's "substance;"
here the word has the meaning of the real nature of that to which
reference is made in contrast to the outward manifestation (see the preceding

has appointed heir of all things, through whom he made the ages (Greek: aion: ages of time, perpetuity, worlds, generations, human
entities). 3 Godís Son
is the brightness of his glory, and the express
image of his being. He sustains all
things by his powerful word. After Jesus purged our sins, he sat down on the
