< Back to Hebrews Chapter 5

  • Thomas Packer
    In my heart my understanding of the first few verses harkens to how we can facilitate love and forgiveness more powerfully through the humility of seeing the shortcomings in ourselves, which also compels us to be compassionate to ourselves as well as others. It strikes me that our faith in God becomes a stronger part us through this practice of love with truth and goodness duty for existence path
  • Teri
    This short chapter shows that some things are just harder to understand! "Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and them that are out of the way for that he himself is also compassed with infirmity. see verse 2
  • Steve
    Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffers,says Paul of Melchisidec, who was a High Priest, as was Jesus, chosen by God, as was Jesus to offer sacrifice for sin, his and others."Oh no! Jesus had no sin" To be born into flesh is sin, in that we automatically assume differentiation from God, but there is atonement, and mercy thru tears, praying for forgiveness,
  • Joey
    Jesus had no sin and being born is not sin, David even says he was born in sin like being born into a pool. That scripture also must be taken in context because David was talking to God about the sin he did and he basically was like I was born into this, I was shaped in immoral behavior the flesh Psalms 51: 5 "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity and in sin did my mother conceive me."

    What did Jesus ever do to provoke the hypocrites? He exposed their hypocrisy! And why not even from out of yourselves, do you not judge what is right? If you're about to be hauled before the Judge, don't you want to do everything to cooperate and seek lenience? Or when He has frankly forgiven you everything, BECAUSE you had nothing to pay; do you look for some fellow servant to take by the throat?
  • A disciple
    Yes, Steve, Nowhere! When the Lord taught the crowds He used parables; (short stories that are told for to making moral and spiritual points); which every man hearing could in his integrity of heart and fear of God receive good and well as it was ever intended when God spoke it to him. Likewise when a man has no place for faith or fear of God, he cannot hear what's plainly spoken; but hardens.

    Servant.. many religious experts believe so I don't believe they are the same and I am convinced I have the Holy Ghost. Matthew Henry said in his abridged commentary that referring to Melchizedek having no parents, no begaining or ending of days refers to no documentation of his history. Christophanies and Theophanies Christ pre-incarnate appearances are not easily understood but few Deut: 29, 29.
  • Eutychus
    "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God;" The 'oracles of God' is another way of saying, the Word of God. We can spend a lifetime in church, and still be terribly ignorant of God's Word. And God's word, unknown, can do little to teach us truth. We must make it a part of ourselves, by study and prayer
  • Servant of God
    Not that there hasn't been Spirit beings walking the earth. Enoch, Elijah, Isaiah, Moses, Melchisidek, Jesus. All served God with whole heart, and mind, and being. It is possible for anyone or why did God write his law and testimonies thru his Prophets. In fact we are constructed in His image, in that we are Spirit filled beings, if one were to reflect upon this truth. It is God's will this.

    To Lou: I like your comment; sounds like you PRAY before you speak ...................
  • Lou
    I'm not out to ruffle feathers, carefully go over Gen.14, Psa.110, Heb. chapt.5-7. Jesus, and Melchizedek are....one in the same. There's only one eternal High Priest of God, and King of Peace (Salem). He has boundless authority over time, and space, He created them. Melchizedek, who brought out bread and wine, had no beginning, or end of days, was not here to save us all quite yet, (just Abram).
  • A disciple
    To everyone; We cannot ignore or dismiss all the multitudes of Scriptures which say plainly that the Anointed, the Christ, IS THE SON OF GOD COME IN THE FLESH; because of one or two MIS-interpreted sayings that are wrenched out of context to force a meaning never intended...i.e.; that Jesus is somehow less than He says He is. He that is of the Truth WILL hear His Voice; and will not hear strangers
  • Servant of God
    Who was Paul referring to in verse 5-7? Jesus or Melchisidek? Who with strong crying and supplication was heard of God? Paul is not clear but the point is that they both were high priests, appointed as was Aaron to perform ritual sacrifice. Jesus was the High Priest of our profession for his obedience toward God,in that he suffered crucifiction in order to demonstrate eternal life in God. Amen
  • A disciple
    servant; when Jesus said that to the young rich man, He was exposing and rebuking the empty flattering titles used to "butter-up" and ask for an audience. He was not saying that He isn't God; but for the kid to sober up and be true in his character. Look at the rest of the scenario: the issue was NOT "if Jesus is the Son of God;" but the shallowness of the love of this world, and its ruin of men.
  • Servant of God
    Disciple, Hesus when asked of one,"Good master, How shall I obtain the Kingdom? Jesus answered,"Why callest me good? There is none good but God alone." Jesus read the Bible, just as I do. Bit by bit, precept by precept, here a little, there a little. I do no agree with Mega Churches or Bible belters. Their doctrine is serving, justifying all sorts of vile inequity. Jesus will not approve
  • ALEX
    The divinity of Christ was b/c he was an absolute Son, not a token son like Adam but an Absolute Son,It was God his father that said that everything has to MULTIPLY, after its kind and christ was the multiplication of God, I will make him my 1st born etc and I shall be unto him a father and he shall be unto me a son, Their relationship was like Abraham and Isaac.Two distinct beings but 1 spirit.
  • A disciple
    servant; Jesus' divinity was not "granted" to Him because of His obedience! That is a heathen doctrine which started from the devil, saying, that Jesus is a created being! Jesus is God from everlasting to everlasting, and was with the Father before the world was; "Before Abraham was I AM." For our sake, as the Anointed Saviour of the world; the Father additionally glorified Him for His obedience.
  • Sevant of God
    Disciple, Jesus agonized in the garden for sure knowing his death was imminent! He was in all ways human as well as divine. His divinity was granted to him by his complete obedience to God. This was his greatest test and though sorrowful facing death he had faith that God was wirh him and would guide him as He had done heretofore. Jesus was alone on the cross for 9 hours with criminals.......
  • 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"
  • Felicia
    To Ibrahim
    Jesus Christ in His humanity like you and me was terrified of the death of deaths; all the sins of mankind poured upon Him; separated from His Father. The Cross was hard for Him to face so He prayed and cried to God and God heard Him because of His godly fear. Nevertheless He went to the Cross, He died and He rose again on the third day according to Scriptures. He endured the Cross.
  • Alise
    V.12 After receiving the Holy Ghost and being baptized in Jesus' name we become examples (teachers) of how to live before sinners but we can't pass the tests' God allows to come our way because we take things personal, we don't have the experience to be able to teach our brother how to live. We have to practice what we preach. We can't stay babes forever. We have to overcome our flesh!
  • BSP
    Strong meat or solid food is needed to promote spiritual growth as verse 14 shows. This will help one to reach Christian maturity.
  • Orman pitter
    I strongly, believes that every believer after coming to the knowledge of the grace of God, repented of our sins and being baptised should seek God to be filled with the Holy Spirit, because it's the power from on high, and we are lifeless without the power of God. A car without an engine won't be able to drive, so we ad Christians do need the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
  • Bobby Williams
    This chapter informs us that only Jesus qualified to represent all humanity before a holy God as our great high priest. Though he suffered a physical death he didn't experience the penalty of spiritual death. Jesus's suffering and anguish as a human represented the points in which humanity suffers and he met the righteous requirements of God in his physical death but was raised in victory Rom 5-6.
  • Bill
    vs 5 "today I have begotten thee" means the firstborn. And as the firstborn son He had more of an inheritance. This is great news for those who trust in Jesus for their justification and sanctification. They will rule and reign with him in the millennial kingdom.
  • Ibrahim
    If Jesus prayed and cried out loud to the one who would save him from death and his prayers were heard and answered, it means he didn't die but God raised him up to himself alive, correct or not? Please explain it to me further more, I mean it's confusing.
  • Sharon Lawless
    Jesus prayed for "God's will" to be done, not his own. And it was answered, God's will was that Jesus die on the Cross in order to be our substitute, our savior. Jesus was made to taste death, that all who accept Jesus as their Savior may live.
