HEBREWS 1:4 --- A QUESTION FOR TRI{3}NITARIANS! THE OBVIOUS MEANING & OBVIOUS IMPLICATIONS!



What is meant by the following phrase in Hebrews 1:4?

...BECAME...” or ...HAVING BECOME...” ???

What are the ( obvious ) doctrinal implications of this phrase?

...τοσούτῳ κρείττων γενόμενος τῶν ἀγγέλων ὅσῳ διαφορώτερον παρ’ αὐτοὺς κεκληρονόμηκεν ὄνομα...”

The Net Bible
...Thus he became{10}...”
[FOOTNOTE 10]: Gk., “having become.” This is part of the same sentence that extends from v. 1 through v. 4 in the Greek text.

Revised Knox Bible
...superior to the angels in that measure in which the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs...”

Kindom Interlinear:
...to-so-much better having-become of-the angels to-how-much more-differing beside them he-has-inherited name...”

Empahtic Diaglott:
...by-so-much greater having-become of-them messengers, by-so-much more-excellent beyond them he-has-inherited a-name...”

...((( BECAME )))...” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

STRONGS 1096 = Gk., ( GENOMENOS ) = verb, second aorist, middle, deponent participle, nominative, singular, masculine

HELPS - WORD STUDIES:
"...1096 Gk., ( gínomai ) – properly, to emerge, become, transitioning from one point (realm, condition) to another. 1096 Gk., ( gínomai ) fundamentally means "become" (becoming, became) so it is not an exact equivalent to the ordinary equative verb "to be" (is, was, will be) as with 1510 Gk., ( eimí ) 1511 Gk., ( eínai ), 2258 Gk., ( ēn ). 1096 Gk., ( ginomai ) means "to become, and signifies a change of condition, state or place" (Vine, Unger, White, NT, 109)..."

ZONDERVAN NIV BIBLE COMMENTARY:
...He became" is again somewhat unexpected (cf. "appointed," v.2). The writer has made some strong statements about the excellence of Christ's person, and so we should expect him to describe Christ as eternally superior to the angels rather than as "becoming" superior to them...”

KENNETH WUEST WORD STUDIES:
...The word "made" is the translation of Gk., ( ginomai ), a word the meaning of which is in contrast to that of Gk., ( poieo ) which means "to make." The latter means "to construct or fashion something out of existing materials." The former is the word used of the universe coming into existence. It means "to become." The Son became better than the angels, inferring that at one time He was lower than the angels...”

What does it mean when it says he:

1.) “...BECAME...”

And what does it mean when it says he might:

2.) “...HAVING BECOME...”

Greater than the Angels?

What is the meaning?

And what are the ( obvious doctrinal implications ) of that statement?

I ask all sincere truth seekers and Tri{3}nitarians to -- please think about?

NOTE: The Tri{3}nitarian commentators above all go on in their commentaries to assume a Tri{3}nitarian interpretation in spite of the obvious implications of the Gk., ( ginomai ). I am in no way trying to represent them as Non-Tri{3}nitarian in belief.
