Bible Commentary for Hebrews 10:29

Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 10:29


10:29 Of how much sorer punishment is he worthy, who - By wilful, total apostasy. It does not appear that this passage refers to any other sin. Hath, as it were, trodden underfoot the Son of God - A lawgiver far more honourable than Moses. And counted the blood wherewith the better covenant was established, an unholy, a common, worthless thing. By which he hath been sanctified - Therefore Christ died for him also, and he was at least justified once. And done despite to the Spirit of grace - By rejecting all his motions.

Discussion for Hebrews 10:29

  • Leeman T Chiles Jr on Hebrews 10:29
    How are we christians to distinugish the world's view of the word temporary which is like 6-9 months and God's view of it which could mean 6 months to about 20 years?
  • Clara on Hebrews 10:29
    I have a question

    My problem is that I came across the Hebrews 10:26-31 and had thoughts that christ blood is unclean. So now I have thoughts that i regarded Christ's blood unclean and it will not be forgiven me. I am concerned what if I did that. I want Jesus in my life and don't want to be outside of God's grace. So i worry if I regarded such a thing. Do you have a advice, what do you think about it?
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Hebrews 10:29
    HI Clara, I do not know what you mean by regarding the Lords blood unclean, can you be more specific? have you received the Lord as your savior? if so you know we stumble, but God want let his children live in sin, he chastise those that are his, read Hebrews 12:7-13. That's what that verse would mean to you. Now if you're not a child of God and you die in you sins then that verse means judgment for them. but you can except Christ as you savior and turn from that sin grow in grace and he will remove that sin from your life.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Hebrews 10:29
    Our minds have suffered corruption by our sin nature inherited from the fall of Adam. Our brains are capable of thinking any possible vile thought or imagination. We are also open to suggestion by Satan himself. This in itself is not cause for you to despair of an evil thought in passing.

    The danger in the passage you referred to is regarding a person who refuses the salvation purchased by the precious blood of Jesus Christ and then presumes to obtain a salvation based on the old covenant of now meaningless sacrifices and works. Such a person can only look forward to judgement and fiery indignation.

    You apparently are not of this persuasion being that you express your concern to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. We all need a renewal of our mind as Romans 12 calls us to:

    "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

    This only comes by abiding in Jesus Christ, and "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" ( 1 Corinthians 10:5)
  • Marie on Hebrews 10:29
    Trodden Underfoot meaning killed? ... For 2 Esdras 16:69?
  • Rebeca Barrios on Hebrews 10:29
    In Hebrews 10.29, the writer anticipates a "much sorer punishment." Some throughout history have interpreted this as a loss of salvation and an eternity in hell (lake of fire). Is this accurate? If so, how do we reconcile this with verses dealing with security? If not, what does the passage teach?
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 10:29
    I would add: the readers of Hebrews were Messianic Jews, living in Jerusalem & were being encouraged during persecution. The key verse re: Rebeca's question, is verse 26: "If we sin wilfully...". In Greek, this is written in the present, active tense; i.e. "If we go on sinning, or making it a continual habit". We understand by the Spirit's Work in our salvation, that it is a complete & perfect Work; i.e. we are not only forgiven completely but for all time & given the Power to live our new life. We can still sin, but the Spirit within checks us to draw us to repentance. But if we reject His pleas & prefer our 'other' lifestyle, then the question: were we even saved at all? God is our Judge.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Hebrews 10:29
    This is not talking about a believer losing their salvation. The writer is speaking to unsaved Jews and telling them that if people died under the wrath of God for just violating the law of Moses, they will suffer greater punishment if they reject the Son of God, or consider the blood of the New Covenant of Christ to be an unholy thing, or insult the Holy Spirit when He comes and ministers the gospel of grace to them. This passage is talking about Jews who were hearing the message of salvation, but did not take the next step of receiving Christ for salvation, because if they did, they would be persecuted by their fellow Jews, kicked out of the temple, and even ostracized by their own kin.
