People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 4:15


Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities. A high priest must be in sympathy with those of whom he ministers. Christ, who took upon himself our infirmities, is such a high priest. But was in all points tempted as [we are, yet] without sin. He was tried and tempted as man, but remained sinless.

Discussion for Hebrews 4

  • Netlace
    Ambrose Okech... Read chapter 3 as well. The verse 8 speaks of Jesus. The modern bibles wish this to be hidden because it clearly says he did not change the day when he came. The error originates from the footnotes of the Geneva bible. The foundation of the world is Creation. Please read the Kjv version. All others have removed important things, adding to. The Sabbath is MOST IMPORTANT! See Exodus
  • Doris
    By far one of the most important text in the New Testament. You will only find the accurate text in Kjv and the Geneva. However the Geneva's footnotes are in error. Vs 8 speaks of Jesus. Not "Joshua son of Nun". Those who are keeping Sunday please research every word of chapters 3-4. The biblical Sabbath was never changed. God changes not. Creation REST = Sabbath, from the foundation of the earth.

    God is quick, strong, and powerful
  • BSP
    Verse 13 shows that there is no hidden thought, word, or action to God and that we all must render an account to him.
  • Funke Ogunsola
    I just understood better verse 12 of Heb 4 which says 'for the word of God is quick, and powerful and sharper than any twoedged sword..' Wow! it means God meant what He is saying, and it will come to pass. If you don't rest from sinning; from the works of flesh; from being unbelieving; and eternity catches up with you either by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, or by death, then you are doomed!
  • Loren White
    Ryan: Yes, we DO serve a wonderful God. You said: "...rest from sinning on the 7th day..." I've never heard it expressed like that, thank you.

    "More over, I gave them My Sabbaths to be a SIGN, between Me and them, that they might KNOW that I am the LORD that SANCTIFY them." Ez. 20:12

    Peace my friend!
