People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 13:7


Heb 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you. "Remember them that had the rule over you" (Revised Version). As the past tense is used, the rulers named, it is thought, were dead. At the date of this epistle, James the brother of John, and "James the brother of our Lord", both so closely connected with the Jerusalem church, had suffered martyrdom. The last named, whose martyrdom is recorded by Josephus, was put to death in A.D. 63. Whose faith follow. Imitate it.

  • Judith Brown
    God inhabit the praises of is children. It is necessary to inculcate such act as commended in verse 15 of Heb 13 because God is well pleased when we celebrate He. As saints of the most high we must be contented with what we have, never covet temporary things that will pass away. He promise not to leave you or forsake you. We have a better hope of heavenly Home.
