More Excellent Name

From Mark Byron’s latest Edifier du jour, this phrase jumps out: “…having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.” (Heb 1:1-5)

According to Mark Byron,Jesus does have a more excellent name than any angel, but the word ‘name’ means more than what we commonly use it for; it’s referring to reputation and honor.” So that pretty much blows out of the water the Rubenian cult’s misinformed notions that the concept of a “new name” is justification for Ruben Ecleo’s claims to Messianic reincarnation. Or for anyone else who claims his own name to stand for Christ’s on that basis.

(Thanks for the info, Mark!)
