  • Hebrews 2:
    1)Warning:Hebrews 2:1-4 is a warning passage.There are 4 other passages like this-3:7-4:13;5:11-
    6:20;10:19-39;&12:25-29-to warn
    the danger of turning back from Christian faith.
    2)Great Salvation:The Old Covenant was ordained by angels.There was punishment for disobedience of Law.
    The message of Jesus Christ,
    preached by Apostles &witnessed
    by miracles,signs,wonders &gifts of the Holy Spirit,is much more important.One can not escape punishment for neglecting the great salvation earned by paying a great price.
    3)Glory& honor:The writer continues the discussion on the subject-
    angels.In verses 5-9,he argues taking Ps.8:4-6,and concludes that Jesus Christ who was made little lower than the angels was crowned with honor&glory by tasting death for everyone.
    4)Brother:The writer quoted Ps.
    22:22,Is.8:7&8,and pointed out that Christ has identified with those who are saved by calling brothers
    5)Human nature:Angels also have fallen.But Jesus came in the flesh to redeem the fallen men and not angels.He came to destroy the the works of the devil and the power of death that is devil.(I John3:8).
    6)High Priest:Jesus Christ is faithful&merciful High priest.He made atonement for our sins.He has gone through sufferings.He knows our weaknesses &infirmities.He is able to help us.
