Bible: Hebrews 3:1-19

Jesus and Moses

3:1 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, 1  partners in a heavenly calling, take note of Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess, 2  3:2 who is faithful to the one who appointed him, as Moses was also in God’s 3  house. 4  3:3 For he has come to deserve greater glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house deserves greater honor than the house itself! 3:4 For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. 3:5 Now Moses was faithful in all God’s 5  house 6  as a servant, to testify to the things that would be spoken. 3:6 But Christ 7  is faithful as a son over God’s 8  house. We are of his house, 9  if in fact we hold firmly 10  to our confidence and the hope we take pride in. 11 

Exposition of Psalm 95: Hearing God’s Word in Faith

3:7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, 12 

Oh, that today you would listen as he speaks! 13 

3:8Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of testing in the wilderness.

3:9There your fathers tested me and tried me, 14  and they saw my works for forty years.

3:10Therefore, I became provoked at that generation and said, ‘Their hearts are always wandering 15  and they have not known my ways.’

3:11As I swore in my anger, ‘They will never enter my rest!’ 16 

3:12 See to it, 17  brothers and sisters, 18  that none of you has 19  an evil, unbelieving heart that forsakes 20  the living God. 21  3:13 But exhort one another each day, as long as it is called “Today,” that none of you may become hardened by sin’s deception. 3:14 For we have become partners with Christ, if in fact we hold our initial confidence 22  firm until the end. 3:15 As it says, 23 O, that today you would listen as he speaks! 24  Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” 25  3:16 For which ones heard and rebelled? Was it not all who came out of Egypt under Mosesleadership? 26  3:17 And against whom was God 27  provoked for forty years? Was it not those who sinned, whose dead bodies fell in the wilderness? 28  3:18 And to whom did he swear they would never enter into his rest, except those who were disobedient? 3:19 So 29  we see that they could not enter because of unbelief.
