Hebrews 2 Bible Study
In Hebrews 2:1-4, it is important that the followers give heed to the word of God, not just listening or saying it but carrying it out in their lives. Many Christians only professed themselves to be followers of Jesus Christ but they don’t do what the word of God says. They don’t abide by the teachings in the Bible. If you don’t do God’s commandments, you are leaving a gap in your life, for the devil to come and destroy you. In order to receive eternal life, you must do God’s commandments, not just believing in Jesus Christ. God confirmed his salvation to his children through many signs, wonders, and the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit abide in every believer. It is the seal of our redemption (Ephesians 4:30).
In Hebrews 2:5-9, Jesus Christ was reincarnated into human and made a little lower than the angels but after the resurrection, he sit at the right hand side of God and everything is put under his feet. Men are created as being a little lower than the angels. In Genesis 1:26, God gave men dominion over the fish of the sea, birds of the air, livestock, over all the earth and over all the creatures that move on the ground but God never give this kind of dominion to the angels. So, Jesus Christ is fully human and fully God so that he can rule the world to come and fulfilled God’s word about giving man dominion over all his creation.
In Hebrews 2:10-13, Jesus Christ sacrificed his luxury in heaven by coming down to the earth to die on the cross for our sins. Love involves giving and sacrifice. Through the death of Jesus Christ, many people who believe in Jesus Christ were able to receive eternal life and become the sons of glory in heaven. Therefore, Jesus Christ is like our brother and he is not ashamed to calls us brothers. So we should not be ashamed of acknowledging our faith in Jesus Christ (Matthew 10:33).
In Hebrews 2:14-16, Jesus Christ did not die for the angels but for humanity. Jesus Christ had conquered the ultimate enemy, death, that is the devil so that we who believe in him can be conquerors in all things. Christians don’t have to fear death because they know they will go to heaven after death. But unbelievers often are feared of death because they don’t know what will happen to them after they die.
In Hebrews 2:17-18, Jesus Christ is our high priest. He is the mediator between God and men. He intercede for us by praying about our needs to God every day in heaven. Because Jesus suffered before during his life on earth, now he is able to help others who are facing temptation (1 Timothy 2:5).
