…but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end. Hebrews 3:6

The author now contrasts Moses of the previous verse to Christ here. Moses was a servant “in all His house.” This is speaking of Moses serving in God’s house.Read the rest

And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward, Hebrews 3:5

This verse makes explicit that which was already inferred. Taken together, the previous verse and this one say –

“For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God. Read the rest

For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God. Hebrews 3:4

It has been noted by scholars that this verse, if omitted, would not leave any loss in the train of thought, and so it appears perplexing as to why the author would simply restate the same words in the passage.Read the rest

For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He who built the house has more honor than the house. Hebrews 3:3

“For” expands on the thought of the previous verse. It said there that Christ Jesus “was faithful to Him who appointed Him.” Moses was then immediately introduced by saying that he “also was faithful in all His house,” meaning “God’s house.” The logic is that if Moses was faithful in all of God’s house, he was still faithful as a servant of God (as will be seen by the term “servant” in verse 3:4).Read the rest

…who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was faithful in all His house. Hebrews 3:2

The word “who” here is speaking of Jesus who was just referred to in verse 3:1. However, this is a present participle, and so “who was faithful” doesn’t convey the meaning of what the author is saying.Read the rest
