Was Jesus an angel?

So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.  Hebrews 1:4
            Absolutely not.  Jesus created the universe at the beginning of time (Hebrews 1:2,10), even creating the angels.  He was appointed heir of all things (Hebrews 1:2).  Jesus was the exact representation of God’s glory (Hebrews 1:3) and saved us from our sins.  He sits at the right hand of God, a place of authority (Hebrews 1:3,13).  No angel ever did that.
            Jesus received the title of Son of God, his heavenly Father (Hebrews 1:5).  The angels were told to worship him (Hebrews 1:6).  Jesus sits on a throne and has power (Hebrews 1:8).  Angels are servants to God, the soldiers and workers out fighting for their commander in chief.
            The book of Hebrews started off making that point exactly, probably because some teaching was out there that Jesus was angel.  It’s not true.
