Discussion for Hebrews 13:15

  • Josephine addo for verse 15
    this scripture talks abt offerin sacrifice to God that is to say praise is a sacrifice and a form of service to God .there is not a particular season of praising God. the bible says at all times
  • "giving praise thanks by the fruit of OUR LIPS to HIS NAME ". Why is it people do not SPEAK HIS NAME, they always refer to Him by titles? Is there some unwritten law forbidding is to use his name? Didn 't satan defile slander his Personal NAME and challenge is title.... Am a new christian and I perceive many teachings and that do not correspond with scriptures in bibles. I try to reprove what I hear in churches today notice bibles churches are plural .. I even go as far a reading none biblical historians accounts BC and AD... It frightens me because of Rev 22 18 19 that I dont want to associate with any group calling themselves Christians... For I do not want debate nor confrontations only want the words as originally written in the scrolls explained so I can be a better Christian....
  • John Abraham for verse 15
    Here the sacrifice mentioned is totally different from the old testament sacrifices. Praise cannot be compared with those sacrifices. Praise is thanks giving. Sacrifices were offered for the remission of sins. Our sins are already forgiven and there is more sacrifice needed. The Lord has offered himself as a sacrifice to redeem us from in. Today is our high priest who iis interceding for us in heaven. It seems the word sacrifice is wrongly translated and I prefer the Basic English translation which seems to be more appropriate.
