Study 5 From The Book of Hebrews Is: Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10search the srciptures

  1. 4:14-16. What truths concerning our Christian High Priest are we here exhorted to confess, and what consequents privileges open to our enjoyment are we here exhorted fully to possess?
  2. 5:1-10. What qualifications for high priesthood are set forth in verses 1:4?  How are these possessed by Christ as a higher level and a fuller way than could ever be true of a Levitical priest? What benefit can He consequently make ours, and on what condition?

Notes

  1. The order of treatment in 5:1-4 is reversed in 5:5-10. The three points dealt with are (a) function, (b) understanding sympathy, (c) appointment to office.
  2. 5:3. Every Jewish high priest was ‘bound to offer sacrifice for his own sins’. Contrast 4:15. Jesus was sinless.
  3. 5:7-9. These verses give an amazing insight into our Lord’s true humanity and earthly humility.
