Hebrews – How Shall We Escape?

The bedrock for the foundation of Christianity is: Jesus is the Son of God.

Since He is God’s Son, He is God
You Are My (God) Son, I shall be [his] Father
Psalm 2:7 (cited in Heb 1:5).
2 Samuel 7:14 (cited in Heb 1:5).

God calls His Son, God
God says to His Son, Your Throne & Scepter, O God
Heb. 1:8,9 (Psa 45:6)
Therefore, God, Your God…​
Heb 1:9 (Psa 45:7)

God says His Son is the Creator
…​The heavens are the work of your hand
Hebrews 1:10-12 (Psa 102: 25-27)

The First Warning – Hebrews 2:1-4

Therefore (based on the 1st argument)
We ought to (the writer includes himself)
* Pay greater attention - lest we fall away

If the word spoken by angels proved stedfast AND every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense

How will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation…​ that was:

  • 1st spoken thru the Lord

  • Confirmed to us by those who heard

  • God ALSO bearing witness by signs & wonders, works of power, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit

Hebrews 2:9 (WEB) 9 But we see him who has been made a little lower than the angels, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the grace of God he should taste of death for everyone.
