Verse Hebrews 2.2 We Must Pay The M

Renata Marshall opinion on Verse Hebrews 2.2 We Must Pay The M

This scripture (Hebrews 2:1) is an inference from Chapter one of the book of Hebrews. The first chapter of the epistle spoke about the supremacy of Jesus Christ who is the son of God and express image of his person. These truth were explicitly taught to the Apostles as well as the supremacy of Jesus Christ the son of God over the angels who are ministers unto him. The preceding verse also explains how God has made him higher than the angels and how Christ himself obtained a name that is more excellent than the names of angels (See Hebrews 2:1) .

These en-grafted words and more were captioned in the opening chapter of Hebrews. This is the word of liberation, this is the gospel of salvation simply captioned within a context. The prophets of old only had glimpses of this truth, even the forefathers didn't have access to this truth. They didn't witness it neither did they have it preached unto them. But here is it, happening in the days of the Apostles and commissioned to be taught in all the earth to those who were not eye witnesses to it. That's why Apostles Paul charged the Hebrews to give earnest heed to the words.

The truth contained in that portion of the scriptures which he referred to were not spoken by mere men, not by prophets but the son of God. With God also bearing witness to it as referenced in verse five, eight, and thirteen of the first chapter of the book of Hebrews. In verse five he confirmed him as so, when he to verse eight he spoke of the royalty and majesty of the son, then in verse thirteen he spoke of victory and Dominion. So the Apostles Paul was admonishing them to give heed to those words of life than all that they've been hearing before. They've heard God speak through diverse messengers; angels, prophets and judges. But this time, not through judges, not even prophet nor angels did he speak but by his son.

In the opening remarks of chapter one, the Apostle pointed out that God has spoken in diverse ways and through diverse means before. But in these last days, he has spoken through Jesus, his begotten son whom he has sent to save the world. He Also reinstated that God made the world through his word which is Jesus Christ. So he's saying, these are not the kinds of words that we should let go, it ought to be with us till the end of time! And they should never let go of it at any time. He used a metaphorical expression there, he said so that they wouldn't drift away meaning carried away with old fables.

When God sent angels, there words carry so much authority. Even the prophets and judges, their words were so powerful anyone who goes against it is doomed. They get punished accordingly, and everyone is aware of this. How much more he said in verse three shall anyone of them escape judgement if they neglect salvation spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ and confirmed by those who heard him then. In verse four he said God also bore witness to those words that they were through. As in the name of his son, diverse miracles happened (Hebrews 2:2-4)

Therefore reading further down from verse two to four gave us more insights into why he charged the people the way he did. To give more attention to the words of Christ, guide it diligently and never let it slip, that they also should not depart from the word of salvation that they've heard.
