Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 2:15

2:15 And deliver them, as many as through fear of death were all their lifetime, till then, subject to bondage - Every man who fears death is subject to bondage; is in a slavish, uncomfortable state. And every man fears death, more or less, who knows not Christ: death is unwelcome to him, if he knows what death is. But he delivers all true believers from this bondage.

People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 2:15

Heb 2:15 Deliver them. Not only from sin, which gives death its sting (1Co 15:56), but from all "fear of death" by giving the hope of a blessed life to come.

    God has given us his salvation on a platter of gold by offering his only SON to die in our stead.He went as far as bringing Him His SON to the level of mankind just to draw us back to Himself.Therefore let us all grab this great and wonderful gift of God with no delay before it is late, to avoid God s wrath at the end.
