Hebrews 2 Commentary

(2:1-4) A Warning Against Drifting Away - Highway travelers dislike the sudden appearance of warning signs, but travel could be dangerous without the warnings. The author of Hebrews presents a series of warning signs throughout the book. They aren’t flashing lights, but they shout “danger!” If we do not heed the warning, we will not escape. Christ announced salvation, his followers confirmed it, and God testified to it.

(2:5-18) Jesus, the Man - Jesus came as a human being so that we could see, in human form, what God was like. In turn, Jesus as a human being experienced the same temptations that all people experience, but he did not sin. Then, as a human being, he experienced death. Through his life on earth and sacrifice on the cross, Jesus became a brother to all mankind and a High Priest who suffered on behalf of sinful people. Through his resurrection, he has been exalted to God’s right hand. We must live now by his example.

Dave Burnette's Life Application

A Closer Relationship

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we start the book of Hebrews with Chapter 2 and in our text we see the author warning about drifting away from the Lord while the second part of the chapter supports the doctrine of the deity of Christ explaining the God-Man Jesus-Christ. In making application we see that if we do not seek a relationship with the Lord after our Salvation we run the risk of drifting from the Lord. Jesus wants to have a relationship with you and if you give Him your time, talk to Him in Prayer, and listen to Him through His Word then you will develop the close intimate relationship that He created you to have with Him. How about you? Do you have a relationship with the Lord? Let us learn from our text today and the reminder of the author of Hebrews to be saved and then to develop a close relationship with the Lord who loves you and gave His life for you so that you may know Him in all His Glory.


Hebrews 2

Hebrews 2

 1Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

 2For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;

 3How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

 4God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

 5For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.

 6But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?

 7Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:

 8Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.

 9But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

 10For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

 11For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

 12Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

 13And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

 14Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

 15And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

 16For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

 17Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

 18For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
