Hebrews 2 Summary

Hebrews 2 continues to shine the light on the main message of the Bible: That Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, who as made propitiation (atonement / payment) for the sins of the people and is now sitting at the right hand of God ruling all things.

Dig Deeper

Hebrews 2 is one of those awesome passages in the Bible that contains everything we need to know about our salvation. There are several key verses that are worth memorizing:

Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. (v1)

This is why we read the Bible each day, because the world is doing everything it can to drag you away from this good news.

how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? (v3)

Understand that your hope must be in Christ alone. Your good deeds will not save you. Your Bible reading and church attendance will not save you. Having parents and siblings that are strong Christians will not save you. You must not ignore the one thing that church attendance and scripture point to: salvation by Christ alone.

[God has put] everything in subjection to Him (v8)

It may not often seem like it now, but be reminded that everything in your life and in this world are in Christ's control.

For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. (v18)

This is an incredible promise! Christ is indeed victoriously ruling over all things, but He's not just looking down hoping that you have enough wherewithal to reach up and grab salvation from Him. Through the Holy Spirit, Christ is actively with you at all times, strengthening you to persevere and continually drawing you to Him.

AAA Prayer:

  • ACKNOWLEDGE WHO GOD IS: God your Father is the one for whom and through whom everything exists (v10)

  • ALIGN YOUR LIFE WITH GOD'S WILL: Pray for the strength and endurance to 'pay most careful attention to what you've heard (v1),' so that you will not 'ignore so great a salvation (v3).
