  • Hebrews 13:4-25
  • Hebrews 13:4 – Marriage according to God’s law is an honorable thing.
  • Hebrews 13:5 – Be content with what you have. God has promised to never leave or forsake those who follow Him.  See Deuteronomy 31:6, 8; Joshua 1:5.
  • Hebrews 13:6 – This is a reference to Psalms 118:6. We must never fear man more than God.
  • Hebrews 13:7-9 – They (and we, by extension) were to remember those who lead them and imitate their faith because God has not changed. Therefore, don’t be distracted with new doctrines that arise.
  • Hebrews 13:12 – Jesus’ sacrifice was outside of the Old Law – thus He suffered outside the gate. We must go to Him to worship properly – we can’t try to stay inside the gate and still worship Him correctly.  We must recognize that the Old Law is in the past.
  • Hebrews 13:15 – This verse is sometimes used to teach against instrumental music, but it is not really talking about that. It is broader than that – it is talking about our speech.
  • Hebrews 13:16 – The sacrifice God wants is for us to do good and share with others.
  • Hebrews 13:17 – Obey the elders of the congregation, but not to the point that you go against God.
  • Hebrews 13:21 – This is what the Holy Spirit wished for them and also for us: to be equipped in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight through Jesus Christ.
  • The purpose of this book was to forestay further apostasy by showing how the new covenant is superior to the old.
