Day 5: Hebrews 5:1-10

Read: Hebrews 5:1-10 again.

Think: 

  • Verse 7 describes the emotional prayers of Christ while he was on this earth. These prayers of Christ might refer to (1) his prayers in the garden of Gethsemane, or (2) his cries from the cross, or (3) a general description of his prayers throughout his life. Which of these three options do you think is correct & why?
  • Verse 7b says that Christ was “heard” by “the one who could save him from death.” Since he did die, in what sense was Christ “heard?”
  • Verse 8 says that Christ “learned obedience from what he suffered.” What do you think the phrase “learned obedience” means?
  • According to verses 9 and 10, there were two results that happened when Christ completed (“made perfect”) his task on earth. What are those two results?
