Jesus > Moses

Gentlemen,

Invest some time in preparation for Monday night’s study on Hebrews 3.  These questions will help.

  1. Why does “therefore” begin v. 1?
  2. What does it mean to be “partakers of a heavenly calling”?  *See also Ephesians 1:3; 2:4-7; Philippians 3:14, 20; Hebrews 11:16; 12:22-23.
  3. The writer urges us to “consider Jesus” … What does this look like in our everyday lives?
  4. How can Jesus be described as an “Apostle”?
  5. What is the significance behind contrasting Jesus as a “Son” versus Moses as a “servant”?  (vv. 5-6)
  6. Why did the writer of Hebrews argue that Jesus is greater than Moses?
  7. How/when did ancient Israel “harden their hearts”?  (vv. 8-9, 15-17)
  8. What were the consequences of this “hardening”?  (vv. 10-11, 17-19)
  9. How do we sometimes “harden our hearts”?
  10. What are some consequences we can anticipate as a result?  *See also Proverbs 29:1; Jude 5.
  11. Identify some remedies to heart-hardening.
  12. How is sin described in v. 13?
  13. Read Ezekiel 33:11 … How may we use this verse, along with Hebrews 3, to demonstrate to a friend that God does not take pleasure in the destruction of unbelievers?
