Day 3: Hebrews 2:1-9

Read: Hebrews 2:1-9 again.

Think: 

  • Verse 4 says that God testified to the salvation announced by Christ with “signs, wonders, and various miracles.” Does this verse suggest that these continue or does it suggest that they have ceased? Explain your answer.
  • In verse 5 the author of Hebrews resumes talking about why angels should not be exalted too much by believers. What reason for not exalting them is given in verse 5?
  • Verses 6-8a quote from Psalm 8:4-6. What does the author’s point seem to be in quoting these verses?
  • The middle of verse 8 states a conclusion based on his quotation of Psalm 8. What is that conclusion, in your own words, in verse 8?
