Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 2:15


2:15 And deliver them, as many as through fear of death were all their lifetime, till then, subject to bondage - Every man who fears death is subject to bondage; is in a slavish, uncomfortable state. And every man fears death, more or less, who knows not Christ: death is unwelcome to him, if he knows what death is. But he delivers all true believers from this bondage.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 2:15


Heb 2:15 Deliver them. Not only from sin, which gives death its sting (1Co 15:56), but from all "fear of death" by giving the hope of a blessed life to come.

    Rom. 9:10 - "..... that if thy wilt confess ..... "; meaning of the word 'confess' in BIBLE dict. - "An open profession of faith." Jas. 2:14, 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26. The WHOLE Bible works together; not just certain verses taken out of context.

    I agree with Hary Collins, Jesus Christ is our only hope of salvation. I pray that we repent seek him while he can still be found. The Day of the Lord is coming! Will God's people be ready?
