The Perfect High Priest


Sorry for the delay in posting these study questions for Monday night’s study of Hebrews 5.

  1. What is the significance of priests being appointed “from among men”?  (v. 1)  Hint: Compare to the discussion about angels in chapters 1 & 2.
  2. How was a High Priest selected in O.T. times?  See Exodus 28:1-3; Numbers 16:1-40; 1 Samuel 16:1-3.
  3. What O.T. scriptures are quoted in vv. 5 & 6?
  4. Who is Melchizedek?  Hint: Genesis 14:18-20; Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 7:1-3.
  5. How and why is Jesus compared to Melchizedek?  (vv. 6 & 10)
  6. How is it possible that Jesus “learned obedience from the things which He suffered”?  Why is this important?
  7. How is true salvation evidenced in a life?  (v. 9)
  8. What had happened to the members of the original audience for the book of Hebrews?  (v. 11)
  9. What does the phrase “dull of hearing” mean?  What are symptoms of this condition?  Hint: See Romans 1:18-32.
  10. Define/describe the analogies of “milk” and “solid food.” (vv. 12-14)

Steve T. is bringing the dessert … show up by 7 pm to enjoy that … then we will feast on the Word of God!
