Study 3 From The Book of Hebrews Is: Hebrews 3:1-6
- Verses 1, 6. Christians are here described as those who confess Christ and respond to His call. If these activities are to be fully meaningful, we must ‘consider Jesus’s as our apostle and high priest. What, then can Christ do for us, and what does He demand from us as (a) our Apostle, and (b) our High Priest?
- Verses 2-5. Find three ways in these verses in which Christ is said to excel Moses.
- Verse 1. As ‘Apostle’ Jesus was sent from God to men to revel; as ‘High Priest” He offered Himself for men to God to redeem and to reconcile. C.f. 1:1, 2a, 3b; 2:3, 17; 4:14; 5:1; 8:1.
- Verses 2-6. ‘God’s house’: this refers to God’s people or household, not to the Tabernacle or Temple. Now it is we Christians who are God’s house. Our heavenly calling makes us ‘holy brethren’ in God’s family (verse 1).
