People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 10:28


Heb 10:28 He that despised Moses' law. He who wilfully rebelled against the law of Moses had no remission. Died without mercy under two or three witnesses. When proved guilty by two or three witnesses his fate was death. See Nu 15:30-36 De 13:6-10. There was mercy for the ignorant, the mistaken, those "overtaken" (Ga 6:1), but not for the deliberate despiser.
