People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 3:5


Heb 3:5 Moses verily [was] faithful in all his house. See Nu 12:7. As a servant. Not as the builder, or as the master, but as a waiting man in the house. For a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after. The whole ministry of Moses was a "testimony" to what would follow after, a shadow of what was to come. This will be brought out more fully in subsequent chapters.
