- Hebrews 5:12 - We must strive to study to get to the point that we can teach others and handle the more difficult parts of scripture. We must also put what we learn to use so that we will grow. Without study and use of the word, we will not grow.

- Hebrews 6:3 - In context, this is referring to letting go of the old covenant. The phrase “if God permits” is referring to the people’s inclination to let go of the old law. We know from many other passages that this is what God wanted them to do.
- Hebrews 6:4-6 - Once they had experienced the blessings of the new law, it is senseless to return to the old law. Once you have learned the new law and forsaken it, there is nothing left to bring you back to repentance.
