“But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:6 But Christ was faithful as a Son; whose house we are, while we hold fast, and shall be unto the end, if we hold fast our confidence in God, and glorying in his promises; our faith and hope.
Heb 3:6 But Christ as a son over his own house. Moses was a waiting man in the Lord's house, but Christ, the Son, is Lord over the house, his own church. Whose house we are. "Ye are God's building" (1Co 3:9) and "My church" (Mt 16:18). If we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. We Christians are Christ's house, and will continue to be Christ's house, if we hold fast, etc. The possibility of falling away, as Israelites fell away from God's house of Israel, is pointed out in the following verses.
