Day 5: Hebrews 6:4-12

Read: Hebrews 6:4-12 again.

Think: 

  • Is it possible that verse 6 is suggesting that the people in this passage were saved at one time but now, having “fallen away,” are lost?
  • In verse 6 the phrase “to be brought back to repentance” completes the phrase begun verse 4 that says, “It is impossible…” So the passage is saying, “It is impossible for those… to be brought back to repentance” if they fit the other descriptions in verses 4-5. If these people were saved, then fell away from Christ, can they be saved again, according to this passage?
  • What phrase suggests they cannot be saved again?
