Central Idea God has spoken to us at last through his very Son. All things are for and by the Son (as they are the for and by the Father). And the Son is the one who has sat down next to God, because of the glory of his Work, to which no angel (or anyone else) can compare. He is both the One who is very God of very God, and he has submitted himself as the sacrifice for sins. (The combination of which is a glory worthy of our eternal awe.) Grammatical Notes Diagramming this passage really helped me. I understood the grammatical structure much better... Verse 1b is the main sentence, 1a being a participial phrase underneath it and the rest of the passage containing relative clauses explaining it. There are three such relative clauses: 2a (who God appointed), 2b (through whom God created), and 3-4 (who...sat down). Notice, 3e is the main point of 3-4, the rest of the propositions being participial phrases supporting it. (The trickiest part was to understand what the 'hos', the first greek word in that verse, went with. I think the answer is the indicative verb 'sat' toward the end of that verse.)
