For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. Hebrews 12:3

The word “For” is given to explain why he exhorted the reader to fix his gaze upon Jesus. He had said that Christ “endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” With that now understood, the author says, “For consider Him.” This is still speaking of Jesus, the subject of what continues to be stated.Read the rest

…looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2

This verse completes the chapter, and it explains what was just said in the previous verse. Taken together, they read, “And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.”

What the author is saying in the words, “God having provided something better for us,” is that God understood beforehand, what the anticipated outcome of His plan would be.Read the rest

And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, Hebrews 11:39

The author now sums up the faithful lives of the people he has mentioned, even from verse 11:2. In this verse, he now says, “And all these.” In verse 11:2, they were described as “the elders.” From there, he made a short note about faith in the creation account, and from there he went directly to the faith of Abel and then numerous others.Read the rest
