People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 2:2


Heb 2:2 For if the word spoken by angels. The Jewish law. See notes on Ac 7:53 Ga 3:19. The law was given through the medium of angels, as was confessed by the Jews. See Josephus ("Antiq". 15:5, sec. 3). Was steadfast. Confirmed by a penalty upon transgressors. And every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward. Nothing is plainer in all Jewish history than that obedience to the law was rewarded and disobedience punished.
