This study of Hebrews chapter 2 was given by paster Barry Forder on 26th January 2020 as part of our family service.
In this study we consider the danger that tradition poses to the truth, and why the writer to the Hebrews is insistent that the Jewish believers, to whom he was writing, hold tightly onto the things they had been taught so that they didn’t drift away from the liberty and truth of the Gospel and turn back into the traditions of Judaism.
To emphasise this, the writer makes a clear distinction between the Law, that was given through the ministration of angels, and the Gospel which came directly through Jesus, was testified to by the Apostles and confirmed by God through the signs and wonders & gifts given to the Church through the Holy Spirit.
Jesus has been placed as Head over all things, and in the age to come He will subdue all things under him – whether thrones, dominions or powers. He has defeated death and will put down all rule, authority and power, having defeated the devil and has removed the fear of death for all who put their trust in Him!
May you be blessed and encouraged by this study.
