Hebrews 3 Study (Part 1 - v. 1, vv. 3-6, & vv. 7-11)/Psalm 102 (103) Study ...



HEBREWS 3 – (vv. 1, vv. 3-6, & vv. 7-11) STUDY

The Son Was Faithful

3 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus, 2 who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was faithful in all His house. 3 For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He who built the house has more honor than the house. 4 For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God. 5 And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward, 6 but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope [a]firm to the end.

Be Faithful

7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says:

“Today, if you will hear His voice, 8 Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, In the day of trial in the wilderness, 9 Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, And saw My works forty years. 10 Therefore I was angry with that generation, And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, And they have not known My ways.’ 11 So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ”

HEBREWS 3 STUDY & NOTES – (vv. 1, and vv. 3-6, and vv. 7-11)

3:1: Christians are HOLY BRETHERNS; to be in Christ is a HEAVENLY CALLING, one that separates those in Christ from those who have not heeded His call … As APOSTLE AND HIGH PRIEST, Christ is both God’s representative to man and man’s mediator before God … In Him the offices of prophet and priest – of Moses and Aaron – are combined …

3:3-6: The glory of the building goes to the architect rather than to the structure itself … So, MOSES – (v. 5) glorifies Christ, and the Church is consecrated to the glory of God, WHOSE HOUSE WE ARE – (v. 6) …

3:7-11: This reference is to the rebellion of those who left Egypt during the Exodus … Due to their unbelief, the WHOLE GENERATION – (v. 10) was forbidden to enter Canaan, the promised land, and so could not enter GOD’S REST – (v. 11) … Rest – (Greek, “sabbatismos”) literally means Sabbath rest or Sabbath Observance …

- There are three types of God’s rest known to the Jews: (1): THE SABBATH REST, the day on which God rested from His works – (Genesis 2:2-3); (2): THE REST FROM EGYPTIAN BONDAGE, which Sabbath rest in heavens established by the Messiah … Hebrews uses this OT QUOTE – (PSALM 94 (95):7-11) concerning Canaan to refer to the rest in the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN … Significantly, we experience this rest now as we ascend to God in worship – (Hebrews 4:4-11) …

Genesis 2:2-3: 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
