Yesterday we heard of the sword of the Lord, which was to come to Jerusalem, actually in the form of the army of the king of Babylon. And there would be punishment also for the Ammonites.
In yesterday’s reading, we heard one of the famous chapters that relate to Israel as the Lord’s vine. This would have been in the minds of those who listened to Jesus when he gave his teaching about the vine bearing fruit in John 15. God said yesterday, “They will go into exile because they do not know me.”
In Hebrews 2 we heard the first of the writer’s warnings. The writer’s increasingly strong warnings are a persistent theme in this book. And for the first time we heard that Jesus is our perfect High Priest. Jesus is perfect for that position because he fully shared our human existence, and he suffered and defeated the devil’s power over death.
GNT Translation note:
Heb. 3:1 My [dear fellow believers//Christian friends], who also have been called by God! Think of Jesus, whom God sent [as his representative, and whom we profess as our High Priest// to be the High Priest of the faith we profess].
7 So then, as the Holy Spirit says [quoting God’s words], “If you hear [my//God's] voice today,
8 do not be stubborn, as your ancestors were when they rebelled against [me//God], as they were that day in the desert when they put [me//him] to the test.
19 We see, then, that they were not able to enter the land, because they [refused to//did not] believe.
