This week’s passage will be Hebrews 3:1-6. It is pasted in below. Here are a couple of questions that will help you focus on the application of the passage.
1. What does verse 1 mean when it asks us to “consider” Jesus? What do the first two chapters teach us that would cause us to “consider” Jesus?
2. We have already learned that Jesus is superior to the angels. Now who is he compared to? Why Moses? (Remember, the audience is Jewish believers. What would they have thought of Moses?
3. Moses was faithful as a _____________. Jesus is faithful as a _____________. Why does this give us confidence in Jesus, even more than Moses?
1 Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, 2 who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God’s house. 3 For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses—as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself. 4 (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.) 5 Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, 6 but Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope. (ESV)
