Hebrews 3 Commentary

(3:1-19) Christ is Greater than Moses - Moses has always been highly revered by Jewish people, by the Christian church, and even in Hollywood movies. But Jesus should receive much more honor and glory than Moses. “The Lawgiver,” Moses, served God faithfully. But Christ was much more than a servant—he was God’s Son. He was put in complete charge of God’s house, the church. As Christians, we are part of God’s house, and Christ is in charge of us. We must recognize him as our highest authority.

Dave Burnette's Life Application

Listen to the Lord

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 continue in the book of Hebrews with Chapter 3 and in our text we see the author continuing to explain how Jesus is above all men He flesh and blood - He is God. The author also go es on to tell us that we should listen to the Lord. In making application we see that to have a good relationship with the Lord we must listen to the Lord. How about you? Do you see that the Lord is speaking to you? Let us learn from our text today and the reminder of the author of Hebrews that the key to a close relationship with the Lord we need to listen to Him as He is speaking to us through the Word of God.


Hebrews 3

Hebrews 3

 1Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

 2Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.

 3For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.

 4For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

 5And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;

 6But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

 7Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,

 8Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

 9When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.

 10Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.

 11So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)

 12Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

 13But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

 14For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

 15While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

 16For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

 17But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

 18And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

 19So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
