The supremacy and superiority of Christ over Israel’s greatest leaders, mightiest heroes and revered patriarchs, prophets, priests and kings, cannot be emphasized more exhaustively than in these early chapters of Hebrews.

Hebrews 3:4

Hebrews 3:4

The infinite and indisputable supremacy of the Lord Jesus is the singular focus of the first few chapters of Hebrews. Christ has been identified as superior to the prophets and to all ranks of angelic beings. He is heralded as superior in Person and rank to Moses and Joshua.. to Aaron and the priesthood.

Hebrews 3:5

Hebrews 3:5

Faithfulness is a quality to which we are all called – faithfulness in our earthly duties and faithfulness to our heavenly Father. Moses is lifted up, in the book of Hebrews, as a prime example of faithfulness, for we read: Now Moses was faithful in all his house as a servant – and the Lord used Moses.. as a testimony of those things which were to be spoken of later.

Just as the Law was a schoolmaster, which steadfastly points us to Christ, and His read more...

Hebrews 3:6

Hebrews 3:6

Hebrews provided Jewish Christians in the early Church a brilliant understanding that Israel’s first covenant had been superseded by a new and better one, which was cut at Calvary, through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus. He was not only God’s sacrificial Lamb but the Father’s beloved Son. He is God’s anointed King and His great High Priest, Who was sent according to the order of Melchizedek - i.e. king of peace and high priest of the Lord.

Hebrews 3:8

Hebrews 3:8

At the beginning of Hebrews we are informed that God has spoken in these last days through His Son, and throughout the epistle there are quotations from the word. When God speaks, His children should listen; take note; learn the lesson He is teaching; hide his instruction in our heart and apply His truth in our lives.

In this verse God is warning us to learn from Israel's disobedience and exhorting us not to repeat their read more...

Hebrews 3:9

The Lord sanctioned Israel to wander 40-years in the wilderness because they tried His patience and tested His forbearance with their lack of faith. Because of unbelief and incessant murmurings against God, they were disciplined in the wilderness, instead of entering His promised rest.

Hebrews 3:10

Hebrews 3:10

Just as Matthew's target audience was to the lost sheep of the house of Israel so the book of Hebrews was initially directed towards Hebrew Christians, in the early Church, who found the transition from the pre-cross dispensation of Law to the post-cross dispensation of grace - difficult. As a result, both writers included many Old Testament quotes to establish the truth they were sharing.

Matthew's goal was to identify Jesus read more...
