Day 186 - Hebrews, 3

V. 1 Perhaps this verse explains why we are not told the name of the writer of this book. We are to consider (spend much time learning about) the "apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus".
V. 2-6 The Lord Jesus compared with Moses. The Jews were very proud of the times when their leaders saw angels. Moses was one of their famous leaders. But there is One who is far above any angel or any of their leaders. When this book was written, there were many Jews who found it popular to say they were Christians. God knew those who were real, and would warn those who only "profess". He does the same today.
V. 14 Another "if'. There were many who came out of Egypt at the time of Moses, but some did not believe. God knew the heart of every one. There are many today who like to be called Christians but never have believed in Jesus as their own Savior.
