1 A Study Of The Apostle Paul’s Letter To The Hebrews Don’t drift away! Don’t neglect your salvation! Don’t Depart! Don’t fall away! Don’t cast away your confidence! Don’t harden your heart! How can we neglect so great a salvation? ~ Hebrews 2:3

2 Hebrews: Christ Is Superior! Superior Person (1:1—4:13) Superior to Prophets (1:1-3) Superior to Angels (1:4—2:18) Superior to Angels (1:4—2:18) but… We’ll only be studying 2:1-4 today. Superior to Moses (3:1-19) Superior to Joshua (4:1-13) Superior Priest (4:14—7:28) Superior to Aaron (4:14—6:12) Superior to Melchizedek (6:13—7:10) Superior to Levi (7:11-28)

3 Hebrews: Christ Is Superior! Superior Pact (Covenant) to Moses’ (8:1—10:18) Superior Promises (8:1-13) Superior Sanctuary (9:1-15) Superior Sacrifice (9:16-28) Superior Results (10:1-18) Superior Principle (Faith) to Moses’ (10:19—13:25) Superior Things (10:19-39) Superior Actions (11:1-40) Superior Relationship (12:1-29) Superior Way of Life (13:1-25)

4 Although Paul wasn’t finished with his contrast of Jesus with angels, he paused here long enough to provide his first of seven warnings. (These were mentioned in the introduction.)

5 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. Hebrews 2:1 

6 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. This word tells us that this warning to these Jewish Chris- tians was based on what he had already established in —that (since God appointed Jesus as their Prophet, Priest, and King) it was necessary that they reverse the backsliding course they were on! This word tells us that this warning to these Jewish Chris- tians was based on what he had already established in chap- ter one—that (since God appointed Jesus as their Prophet, Priest, and King) it was necessary that they reverse the backsliding course they were on!

7 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. This is from a term which means that it’s a necessity; the word wasn’t used in the sense of being required by com- mand, but what’s required by eternal self-preservation.

8 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. is from a term which means to hold the mind to or simply to mind; i.e., they needed to pay closer attention: read,. Heed is from a term which means to hold the mind to or simply to mind; i.e., they needed to pay closer attention: 5:11-12 read, You have be- come dull of hear- ing. … You need someone to teach you again the first principles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.

9 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. The original term for was commonly used for bringing a boat to land, as if one had a rope tied to a boat and was pulling it in to safe- ty. Interestingly, this word is trans- lated as in, indicating that there’s danger in the path of the one who isn’t mind- ing his course. The original term for heed was commonly used for bringing a boat to land, as if one had a rope tied to a boat and was pulling it in to safe- ty. Interestingly, this word is trans- lated as beware in Mat. 7:15, indicating that there’s danger in the path of the one who isn’t mind- ing his course.

10 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. This refers to the Good News of salva- tion through Jesus. That which they had hoped for & prayed about for 40 gener- ations had finally arrived!

11 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. Although correctly translated, due to the context I don’t believe this clause reveals to us today the true intensity that the Hebrews saw in it. I.e….  

12 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. I don’t believe Paul was referring to a mere absent mind- edness, such as drifting along like a tumbleweed that has no mind of its own; rather, I be- lieve that Paul was referring to a pur- poseful releasing of themselves from their ties to Jesus … … resulting in the dan - ger of being swept away by the same destruction that the rejecting Jews were headed for. In fact…

13 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. The Greek term for was used to de- scribe a river that flowed away from and escaped its nat- ural channel, usual- ly due to flooding; and this corresponds well with the picture in where persecution is portrayed as com- ing against the church like a. The Greek term for drift was used to de- scribe a river that flowed away from and escaped its nat- ural channel, usual- ly due to flooding; and this corresponds well with the picture in Revelation 12:15 where persecution is portrayed as com- ing against the church like a flood. So… So…

14 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. This clause tells us that these Jewish brethren had recog- nized and accepted that God’s redemp- tive plan was being fulfilled in their life- time thru Jesus, but ( due to pressure from the Judaizers ) they had begun to let it slip from their grasp.

15 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. This original term was also used in ref- erence to someone who let something slip his mind, which connects this word with the word ; so it seems that, be- cause of the flood of persecution, they were like the man of … This original term was also used in ref- erence to someone who let something slip his mind, which connects this word with the word heed; so it seems that, be- cause of the flood of persecution, they were like the man of James 1:23-24… the man who saw himself in the mirror of God’s Word, then purposely turned away to forget what he saw.

16 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. Notice : This verse not only implies that one can lose his sal- vation, but also that he must do some- thing to retain it. These brethren were warned to not be like dead wood swept away to de- struction, but like a powerful ship, fight- ing the current of their wicked gener- ation. In fact…  

17 Therefore we must give the more ear- nest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away. Jesus Himself warn- ed them to as if swimming up- stream (), and Peter warned them to be saved from their genera- tion (). Jesus Himself warn- ed them to strive as if swimming up- stream to enter through the narrow gate ( Luke 13:24 ), and Peter warned them to be saved from their genera- tion ( Acts 2:40 ).

18 For if (meaning since) the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, & every transgres- sion and disobedi- ence received a just reward… Hebrews 2:2 

19 For if (meaning since) the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, & every transgres- sion and disobedi- ence received a just reward… As mentioned in, this refers mainly to The Law being given from God to Moses via angels; Stephen said, As mentioned in v. 4, this refers mainly to The Law being given from God to Moses via angels; Stephen said, An angel … ap- peared to him … in a bush…. This is he who was … with the angel who spoke to him …, the one who received The Living Oracles to give to us…. (). The prophets... re- ceived The Law by the direction of an- gels (Acts 7:30-53).

20 For if (meaning since) the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, & every transgres- sion and disobedi- ence received a just reward… How was ? By means of all the miracles attending it, of course ( cf. & ). Let’s read & :    How was the word ( The Law ) … proved? By means of all the miracles attending it, of course ( cf. Acts 7:30 & ). Let’s read Heb. 12:18-19 & 25-26a:   

21 You have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to the blackness of darkness and tempest, and the sound of a trum- pet and the voice of words, so that those who heard it begged that the word should not be spoken to them anymore. … See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on Earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from Heav- en, whose voice then shook the earth.

22 For if (meaning since) the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, & every transgres- sion and disobedi- ence received a just reward… This is from a term which means valid —from God—and therefore reliable.

23 For if (meaning since) the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, & every transgres- sion and disobedi- ence received a just reward… This is from a term which refers to step- ping over the line, which is done when one, as translates it, ; this is the sin of commission where one, in a re- bellious spirit, re- fuses to be bound by law. This is from a term which refers to step- ping over the line, which is done when one, as Rom. 2:23 translates it, breaks the law; this is the sin of commission where one, in a re- bellious spirit, re- fuses to be bound by law.

24 For if (meaning since) the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, & every transgres- sion and disobedi- ence received a just reward… This is from a term which refers to a refusal to listen in order to discover what’s expected ( as if “ignorance is bliss” ); this is the sin of omission where one, in a rebellious spirit, purposely allows information to drift by him. The Bible often uses hearing and obeying inter- changeably:  

25 To the Jews, God said, (). To the Jews, God said, Heed [My] voice … and do what is right... and [obey] all [My] statutes ( Exo. 15:26 ). Of the Jews, God said they have (). Of the Jews, God said they have not obeyed Me…. I have spoken … but they have not heard ( Jer. 35:16-17 ). Of a rebellious Christian, Jesus said, (). Of a rebellious Christian, Jesus said, If he refuses to hear…, let him be to you as a heathen ( Mat. 18:17 ).

26 We have a perfect example of people refusing to hear in : con- cerning those who murdered Stephen it reads,. We have a perfect example of people refusing to hear in Acts 7:57-58: con- cerning those who murdered Stephen it reads, They … stopped their ears … and stoned him. An example of sins of omission and commission listed in is found in where the weeping pro- phet, when praying to God for his peo- ple, said, An example of sins of omission and commission listed in Heb. 2:2 is found in Jer. 32:23 where the weeping pro- phet, when praying to God for his peo- ple, said, They have not hear -kened [“obeyed” in most versions] to Your voice or walked in Your law.

27 For if (meaning since) the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, & every transgres- sion and disobedi- ence received a just reward… The original term for this phrase refers to the payment of right wages, giving one what he’s earned or what’s coming to him, whether it be good or bad. ( Paul spoke of in. ) Ob- viously in this con- text it’s referring to punishment that fits the crime, something only God would truly know.

28 What was the punishment for Old Test- ament Jews who hardened their hearts against God? () What was the punishment for Old Test- ament Jews who hardened their hearts against God? Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion. For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt led by Moses? Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned…? And to whom did He swear they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey ( Heb. 3:15-18 )?

29 And how about those who reject the New Law of Christ? ( ) And how about those who reject the New Law of Christ? Anyone who has re- jected Moses’ Law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three wit- nesses. Of how much worse punish- ment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant a common thing, and in sulted the Spirit of grace ( Heb. 10:28-29 )?

30 … how shall we es- cape if we neglect so great a salva- tion, which at first began to be spok- en by the Lord, and was confirm- ed to us by those who heard Him… Hebrews 2:3 

31 … how shall we es- cape if we neglect so great a salva- tion, which at first began to be spok- en by the Lord, and was confirm- ed to us by those who heard Him… This is obviously a rhetorical question to those Jewish Christians, a ques- tion demanding the negative answer: We cannot escape! That was something they had learned over the centuries, or at least that was Paul’s point.

32 … how shall we es- cape if we neglect so great a salva- tion, which at first began to be spok- en by the Lord, and was confirm- ed to us by those who heard Him… This original term takes us back to the idea of allowing something to just drift by or away; i.e., by losing their faith and gradually re- leasing themselves from their ties to Jesus, they’d end up with no recourse, no way to secure their salvation before it was too late,… … especially since the time was very close. Let me explain:  

33 … how shall we es- cape if we neglect so great a salva- tion, which at first began to be spok- en by the Lord, and was confirm- ed to us by those who heard Him… This didn’t merely refer to the purging of their sin as referred to in ( that which was ful- filled in its totality at the Jews’ destruction ); it also referred to their salvation from that very destruc- tion. Why do I say this? Because…  This salvation didn’t merely refer to the purging of their sin as referred to in 1:3 ( that which was ful- filled in its totality at the Jews’ destruction ); it also referred to their salvation from that very destruc- tion. Why do I say this? Because… 

34 Firstly, he had just referred to the physi- cal punishments of the Jews under the Old Testament, most of which, of course, resulted in eternal punishment since death was involved. But… Secondly, in ( where he essen- tially expanded upon ), Paul warned of the coming Jewish destruction which was prophesied in the Old Testa- ment and which again would, of course, include their eternal destruction.   Secondly, in Hebrews 10 ( where he essen- tially expanded upon Hebrews 2:2-3 ), Paul warned of the coming Jewish destruction which was prophesied in the Old Testa- ment and which again would, of course, include their eternal destruction.  

35 After talking about how God would forget the sins of those who had accepted and stuck it out with Christ in, he went on in to apply—to their time—a prophecy of Moses about the Jews’ destruction; incidentally, this cor- responds perfectly with Peter’s words in : ( cf. Mat. 24:34). (Remember, Peter just warned that audience that was beginning to be fulfilled right then [ ]; then the next chapter—– clearly speaks to Jerusalem’s demise. ) After talking about how God would forget the sins of those who had accepted and stuck it out with Christ in Heb. 10:17, he went on in 10:26b-30 to apply—to their time—a prophecy of Moses about the Jews’ destruction; incidentally, this cor- responds perfectly with Peter’s words in Acts 2:40: Save yourselves from this … generation ( cf. Mat. 24:34). (Remember, Peter just warned that audience that Joel 2 was beginning to be fulfilled right then [Acts 2:19-20]; then the next chapter—Joel 3– clearly speaks to Jerusalem’s demise. )

36 Another reason we can know this was primarily referring to Jerusalem’s end is that Paul also applied to his generation a prophecy about that end from, saying, (lit. in a very, very short time, or soon, very soon, cf. other versions ) (). Moving on…   Another reason we can know this was primarily referring to Jerusalem’s end is that Paul also applied to his generation a prophecy about that end from Habakkuk 2:3-4, saying, Yet a little while (lit. in a very, very short time, or soon, very soon, cf. other versions ), and He who is coming will come ( Heb. 10:37 ). Moving on…  

37 … how shall we es- cape if we neglect so great a salva- tion, which at first began to be spok- en by the Lord, and was confirm- ed to us by those who heard Him… Exactly how was this salvation ?

40 … how shall we es- cape if we neglect so great a salva- tion, which at first began to be spok- en by the Lord, and was confirm- ed to us by those who heard Him… Like the Law that the Jews accepted because it was satis - factorily confirmed, the message of Je- sus was, a word which means essentially the same thing as in.

41 … how shall we es- cape if we neglect so great a salva- tion, which at first began to be spok- en by the Lord, and was confirm- ed to us by those who heard Him… This is an obvious re- ference to the apos- tles who followed Jesus from His bap- tism to His cross.

Now… Now…

42 … how shall we es- cape if we neglect so great a salva- tion, which at first began to be spok- en by the Lord, and was confirm- ed to us by those who heard Him… Since Paul brought up how the old and unclear law provid- ed by angels was confirmed as truly from God to their satisfaction by mira- cles, he went on to write of how the new and clear law provided by Christ and His apostles was likewise con- firmed by various miracles.   

49 …God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various mira- cles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, accord- ing to His own will?

52 …God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various mira- cles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, accord- ing to His own will? Another way to put this is that super- natural occurrences can be described as signs in their pur- pose ( affecting intel- lect ), wonders in their nature ( affect- ing emotion ), & mira- cles in their origin ( producing faith ).

53 …God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various mira- cles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, accord- ing to His own will? The original for this word ( being from the term that we get dyna- mite ) actually means powers; Jesus and the apostles always gave God the glory for the power that worked in/through them.

54 …God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various mira- cles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, accord- ing to His own will? The original term for this word has refer- ence to the idea of distribution; i.e., the Spirit had and used the authority to dis- tribute the various miraculous gifts, something written about at length in.

Well… Well…

55 Due to all the wondrous ways in which Jesus transcends the prophets and the angels ( including, as discussed in chapter one, His being the perfect Savior ), they were expected to not only be more grateful to God than ever before, but also to demonstrate their gratefulness more than ever before by not neglect- ing that which God had given them at such great sacrifice! As Jesus Himself once said, (). Due to all the wondrous ways in which Jesus transcends the prophets and the angels ( including, as discussed in chapter one, His being the perfect Savior ), they were expected to not only be more grateful to God than ever before, but also to demonstrate their gratefulness more than ever before by not neglect- ing that which God had given them at such great sacrifice! As Jesus Himself once said, To whom much is given, from him much will be required [ or expected ] ( Luke 12:48 ).

56 Because they had begun to lose their determination under the pressure of Judaizers to return to the Law of Moses, Paul essentially told them that if there was ever a time in their Jewish history that they needed to pay atten-tion to their relationship with God, that time was now!

57 Paraphrase: Paraphrase: Because Jesus is superior to an- gels, it’s necessary that we hold to the things that we’ve heard concerning our salvation lest we lose it. Since the Old Law proved to be true, and since God dispensed righteous punishment on everyone who refused to hear and obey Him, then surely we don’t think we can escape the punishment that’s coming now if we disregard the great salvation we ’ ve waited on for generations! This salvation was first preached by Jesus, then confirmed to us by those who heard Him personally. God proved the authenticity of both Jesus and His apostles by performing signs, wonders, and various powers, all of which were distributed by the Holy Spirit according as He willed.
