Warning Against Falling Away

Study 6 From The Book of Hebrews Is: Hebrews 5:11 – 6:8search the srciptures

  1. 5:11-14. What is he writer’s complaint about his readers? What does he imply are the conditions of spiritual growth? By these standards, considering how long I have been a Christian, by this time what ought I to be?
  2. 6:1-8. What teaching constitutes the foundation of the gospel? See Acts 2:38; 20:21; 26:18. What reason is given here for not laying this foundation again?  What were the only possibilities now open to such people?

Notes

  1. 5:11. As the writer is about to begin his exposition of the Melchizedek priesthood of Christ, he is arrested by a sense of the difficulty of expounding it to those who have become spiritually so dull of hearing.
  2. 5:14. Note the practical evidence of maturity. Is. 7:16.
  3. 6:4-8. To understand these verses, compare the writer’s earlier reference to the Israelites in the wilderness.  It was impossible for Moses to take them back into Egypt, and to bring them out through the Passover and the Red Sea a second time.  Either they must go on with God and enter in, or come under God’s judgment, and be finally shut out. See 3:10-12.
