Bible Commentary for Hebrews 2:5

Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 2:5


2:5 This verse contains a proof of the third; the greater the salvation is, and the more glorious the Lord whom we despise, the greater will be our punishment. God hath not subjected the world to come - That is, the dispensation of the Messiah; which being to succeed the Mosaic was usually styled by the Jews, the world to come, although it is still in great measure to come Whereof we now speak - Of which I am now speaking. In this last great dispensation the Son alone presides.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 2:5


Heb 2:5 For to the angels he hath not put in subjection the world to come. Literally, "the inhabited earth in the future". The Jewish dispensation was called by the Jews "the present world". A dispensation following it would be "the world to come". The reference is rather to the future gospel ages than to the eternal world. These are not subjected to the angels.
