Daily Scripture & Questions
Hebrews 1:1-4:13 The supremacy of Jesus is stated in 1:1-4. Following this, the Biblical case is made that Jesus is greater than angels because He is the Son of God (1:5-14) and because He took on true humanity as the Son of man (2:5-18). What are the warnings given in light of the supremacy of Jesus in Hebrews 2:1-4? How is Jesus able to help us (2:14-18). Jesus is also greater than Moses and the law. In 3:7-4:13, there is a warning that we must not be like Moses’ followers who failed to enter God’s promised rest. We are followers of the Son of God, and we must not repeat their mistake. It seems that the promised rest is talking about God’s future (end times) rest, but we can NOW enter into it as a foretaste of what is to come.
