Day 12: Hebrews 4:14-16

Read Hebrews 4:14-16 and 1 Samuel 2:12-17

Yesterday we read about Eli’s self-righteous condemnation of Hannah when he thought she was drunk. Today’s passage tells us about Eli’s sons. What were they like as priests?

Did Eli’s sons have any compassion or empathy for those coming to make sin offerings? 

What does their attitude seem to be toward those coming to make sin offerings?

In contrast to Eli’s sons, Hebrews 4:15 says that Christ “has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.” How do Eli’s sons highlight the importance of having a sinless high priest?
