He is the greatest fo all

The famous world Champion boxer MOHAMMAD ALI is known for many memorable sound bites. But none is better known that his claim to be the greatest boxer of all time. It is impossible to find whether he was truly better than all those who came before. Neither it is clear that he could have beat all the boxers that have come since his days. That fact that Ali lost 5 fights clouds the issue.

This is the way of all humanity; someone will always come along to take your place. The author of Hebrews proves to the reader that Jesus, the Son of God, is different in this respect. Jesus truly and absolutely the greatest of all eternity. There has been no one before him who was great and there will be no one after. There will be no one to take His place, because there will never be any need for anyone to do so. .
