…a Bible student's notes…

Studying Hebrews…….

I have been asked for my notes on “again crucifying to themselves the Son of God” (NASB) from Hebrews 6:6.  I have not been making typed notes during this study.  I make notes in the margins of my Bible and a few more hand-written notes in a small notebook.  I now realize that typed notes would help most everyone.  The girls in the class make hand-written notes as we progress – or not.  🙂  It has been a sloooooow study – a deep study, however, a simple one.  Yes, simple!  One of our beginning verses we used as a reminder to ourselves is:  2 Corinthians 11:3 – “But I am afraid, lest as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds should be led astyray (‘corrupted’) from the simplicity (‘singleness’) and purity to (‘into’) Christ.” (NASB)

Deception is the greatest enemy in our studying God’s Word.  We must not “add” or subtract from His Word.  We must use the Bible as its own dictionary and commentary.  We must take note of the arrangement in each of the 66 books, by 40 authors (humans on whom God breathed each word).  There will be NO contradictions!

Now, when it comes to the book of Hebrews, there have been many books previous to this one and a few after Hebrews; but I have discovered that Hebrews reminds me of almost every book in the Bible at some point – especially the Old Testament.  The book of Hebrews is Only written to saved people – even “holy brethren” – see Heb. 3:1″Brethren” are those who hear the Word of God and do it – Luke 8:21.   And, in verses 9-12 of Luke 8, we find that the Word of God is equivalent to the seed of the word that contains the mysteries of the kingdom of God.

NOW – read Hebrews all the way through each day for a week.  Be mindful of its themes, topics, and key words.  Write them down.
