People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 4:15


Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities. A high priest must be in sympathy with those of whom he ministers. Christ, who took upon himself our infirmities, is such a high priest. But was in all points tempted as [we are, yet] without sin. He was tried and tempted as man, but remained sinless.

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!
  • Christina Marlowe
    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
