People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 5:9


Heb 5:9 And being made perfect. Fitted in all points to be our high priest by his suffering; made, not a perfect man, for he was that already, but a perfect high priest. He became the author of eternal salvation. Was able to offer the gospel to all nations, and thus to save all them that obey him. He does not save men in disobedience.

Discussion for Hebrews 5

  • A disciple
    Cheryl; The reference to Melchizedek was for the type, of being [apparently] without natural descent; i.e. eternal. The Lord Jesus is the One who agonized in the Garden of Gethsemane, taking upon Himself the unimaginable horror of the world's guilt, as our Substitute; until His sweat was as it were "great drops of blood falling to the ground."
  • Carolyn Rowe
    Wendell, It was Melchisedec who offered weeping and tears. The chapter is comparing Jesus with Melchisedec in the role of high Priest. God always hears the prayers of the faithful, but He does what is necessary in any situation. There is a difference between being in the flesh and Jesus being made flesh to pay for man's sins. The Bible helps us to understand His masterplan.

    Verses 12 and 13: We could be taking in spiritual food but still not be healthy in the faith. We need to go beyond the elementary things and take in solid spiritual food.
  • Wendell Bonin
    Is the translation correct because i think it was melchisedec that offered the strong weeping and tears because the father always heard jesus and then a little further it mentions that this is the doctrine. Jesus was never in the"flesh"
