People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 13:7


Heb 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you. "Remember them that had the rule over you" (Revised Version). As the past tense is used, the rulers named, it is thought, were dead. At the date of this epistle, James the brother of John, and "James the brother of our Lord", both so closely connected with the Jerusalem church, had suffered martyrdom. The last named, whose martyrdom is recorded by Josephus, was put to death in A.D. 63. Whose faith follow. Imitate it.

    V. 10 - At this time, after Jesus' new covenant was now in force, the unbelieving Jews were still (ineffectually) observing the O.T. rituals (which blood could never take away sins, those rituals just rolled them ahead for one year). These Jews had no right, in their unsaved state, to partake of the new covenant altar. There were MANY Jews, i.e. apostles, disciples, that believed, but most not.

    This is a chap of exhortation encouraging us not to stop entertaining strangers, to remember those that are in bonds, encouraging marriage, not to be covetous, not to follow strange doctrines but to be established in the grace, to be submissive to our rulers etc. And he crowns all that with verses 20-21 my best. That the God of peace make us perfect... To Him be glory for ever and ever. Amen!

    Verse 7 encourages us to remember those taking the lead over us. We want to especially keep them in our prayers.
