4:14 Having therefore a great high priest - Great indeed, being the eternal Son of God, that is passed through the heavens - As the Jewish high priest passed through the veil into the holy of holies, carrying with him the blood of the sacrifices, on the yearly day of atonement; so our great high priest went once for all through the visible heavens, with the virtue of his own blood, into the immediate presence God.

Discussion for Hebrews 4

  • Servant of God
    We must labor to enter into that rest? They did not enter, except Caleb and Joshua? Jesus, the High Priest did? God is the discerner! Who can enter lest God permits!?. To David, Today, if you hear God's word, harden not your heart. The seventh day, the day of rest, where one would die if he worked that day, by stoning! Yikes! So to sum up, the Rest to which God refers is entirely up to Him
  • JOSEPH KABA
    No matter how difficult your life is remember that you have a great high priest who is Jesus.
    And he's ready to change your negative to positive if you belive in him and have faith.
  • A disciple
    AMEN Christina!!! How shall it be known that God hath wrought in us, without the effects? Can the grace of Jesus Christ be in my heart, and my manner of life, spirit and nature reflect His image and likeness? Should we then instead mislead ourselves by stage-playing and flattering talk and love songs to Jesus, and our heart not really be for Him? So faith without WORKS, DEEDS, ACTION, IS DEAD!

    By Belief, By Faith...AND By WORKS:

    James 2: 19-26
    19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
    20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
    21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
    22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect
  • Servant of God
    A seminal chapter from Paul, who immediately distinguishes us and them, unbelievers according to Paul and us, who are saved by belief. For God spoke thru Moses of Rest ig the seventh day. Also in Exodus entering the land if Milk and Honey, which is a similar metaphor. That rest is not watching tv from an easy chair, but somehow finding favor with God due to and unwavering belief and in God
  • Clint
    WE seam to miss what we are being taught in chapter 3 and 4 Do you obsearve the sabbath day or is this just another day? We must rest and it is a holy day unto GOD it looks like we take it as unbelief, also as he speaks to us we do not observe it because of our unbelive
