I suppose Barnabas ...

It should not be made difficult. We cannot help--exhort--one another if we are not regularly together. The Sabbath was to be a Holy convocation, meaning it was a commanded assembly. We should be together on the Sabbath days at least. Christ said the world would know we are His disciples if we have love one for another. John 13:35 That is hardly possible ...

The Creator was never called "Jesus" nor a Son until He was born of Mary. We do not know what His relationship to God the Father was prior to His birth as a human. He was fully God-John 1:1-but divested Himself of His Divinity to become the first Son of God able to die and pay our sins. God was speaking of the past--before Christ was born--when He said, ...

1. Question Restatement: Does those who obey him just mean believe (not reject him) in Hebrews 5:9 What does the context of Hebrews imply? 2. Greek Clarifications: Throughout the book of Hebrews, the writer juxtaposes very similar words with each other - to emphasize personal relationship -- more than simple obedience. In the book of Hebrews, ...

Jesus was with God because he was God he became flesh and so became a man born of God, and so “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son”

The first two chapters of this letter includes a dozen or more quotes or references to the Hebrew Bible or other Jewish literature. Verse 5b quotes 2 Samuel 7:14 wherein Nathan tells David that the Lord 'will' raise up his offspring to build a temple and sit on the throne after him, that the Lord 'will' be a father to him and he 'will' be the Lord's son. ...

The fact of Jesus's obedience, could only be ascertained after he died, because of the wording of "he learned obedience through what he suffered. And being made perfect..." implies that he became "perfected" only as a result of him being "obedient unto death", since it is also written "he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death". In short, his ...

Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. And being made perfect (τελειωθεὶς), he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 5:8-10 ESV) How this applies to Jesus who was already perfect can be seen in how the word is used ...

"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life." Proverbs 13:12 This scripture makes a clear Biblical distinction between Hope and Faith, although we often use these terms interchangeably. Here we see that hope deferred makes the heart depressed and sick; from the heaviness of an 'approaching hope' that has been delayed or ...
