Discussion for Hebrews 3

  • Servant of God
    When the believers flock to the false prophet that shall rise and pervert their faith into something abhorent to God, being swayed by lies and casting their lot with the hypocrites, how shall they stand in judgement. Will not the Lord say"I knew ye not! Flee from me, ye unbelievers! God will not be mocked. We,as servants must hold fast our faith in the true God and not be swayed by lies
  • A disciple
    Harry; very good observations, sir! Between the things in this part of the letter about becoming sluggish and letting slip away even the fundamental beginnings of a saved life in Christ; in ch. 10:32-33 implies that their 'falling away' was likely due to being no longer willing to be persecuted for Jesus' sake (just like you wrote) which will happen just as soon as we lose sight of our First Love.
  • Harry Banks
    The Jewish believers addressed in Hebrews were going through persecution and thus wanted to limit the Superiority of the Lord Jesus Christ comparing him to Moses who they honored as a prophet. They were missing the point that Jesus was not simply a prophet of God, but very God himself, it was appointed by God not only to live for Him but to suffer with Him proving true salvation through longevity
  • Irene123
    vs. 13,15 - The word TODAY written in capitals refers to this 'day' (time) of the age of Grace - when salvation in Acts 2: 38 is still available.
  • Steve morrow
    heb 3:1 wherefore holy brethren partakers of the heavenly calling consider the high priest of our profession CHRIST JESUS 3 for this man was counted worthy of more glory than moses inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honor than the house 4 for every house is builded by some man but he that built all things is GOD
  • Irene123
    " ..... suffering is not joy ..... " Well, God's word says different, by none other authority than Paul. But then some discount Him because of what GOD gave him concerning women in Cor. Even men discount him because of this. Anyway, as to joy in suffering for Christ (after all, didn't He suffer for us?) Heb.12:2; Jas. 1:2; 2 Cor. 6:10; 2 Cor. 11:23-27, v. 30.
