People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 13:14


Heb 13:14 For here have we no continuing city. The temple itself, and Jerusalem the city of their race, were about to be destroyed. They were all pilgrims seeking a city as their fathers did (Heb 11:13-16). But we seek one to come. They should then go forth like their fathers.

  • Alloh paul ashie for verse 14
    We should not base all our hope here on earth..... If in this world we have no hope of Christ then we are of all men most miserable. Heaven is our home, don't forget. Grace be with all that call upon the name of God out of a pure heart.
