Hebrews 6:1-12


Prayerfully consider the following questions about Hebrews 6:1-12.  The handout for the entire chapter of Hebrews 6 is available here.  It will benefit you to also examine Numbers 14 in preparation for our study.

  1. What are some of the ingredients in the “elementary teaching about the Christ”(6:1-2)
  2. What kind of person is described by the components in 6:4-5?
  3. What happens with these persons in 6:6?  Can these readers lose their salvation?  How will this passage impact your views of Eternal Security?
  4. Of what does the metaphor in 6:7-8 remind you?
  5. What is the “Big Idea” (main point) contained in 5:11-6:8?
  6. How does the author shift his teaching, starting with 6:9?
  7. What is required to realize “the full assurance of hope until the end”(6:11)
  8. The same word (νωθρός = sluggish) is used in 6:12 that was used in 5:11 for “dull of hearing.” What remedies are identified in 6:11-12 for this condition?

Did I mention how important PRAYER is to this study?  Chuck Missler (Koinonia House) claims that there are no fewer than 16 different views on this passage by various commentators!

Any predictions how many weeks we might be in this passage?!  We will at least start our discussion this Monday evening … please prepare for a stimulating discussion!

Dessert will be served at 7 pm (Bob J. is providing!) … the study starts shortly after that!
