Day 4: Hebrews 5:11-6:3

Read: Hebrews 5:11-6:3 again.

Think:

  • Verse 12 opens with the statement, “by this time you ought to be teachers.” What does this phrase suggest about the salvation of most of the original readers of Hebrews?
  • The end of verse 12 and verse 13 refer to the “elementary teachings of God’s word” as “milk.” According to verse 13, who needs milk? What does this suggest about the spiritual maturity of the original readers of Hebrews?
  • The end of verse 13 makes reference to “the teaching about righteousness.” What do you think this phrase means?
