Questions for Hebrews 2:14-18
1. Who are Christ’s brethren (vs. 17)?
2. Was it necessary for the Son of God to become a man? Could God have saved His people any other way?
3. What does it mean that Christ made propitiation for our sins?
4. Why do you suppose some people resist the word propitiation, and use terms like expiation instead?
5. Some have reacted against the doctrine of propitiation because of the perceived connection to pagan gods who can be appeased or bribed through sacrifices. What is the difference in this context between the attitude of the pagan gods and the attitude of God our Father? What is the difference in the sacrifices offered?
6. Some people have difficulty with the wrath of God thinking it may be inconsistent with the love of God. What is the relationship between God’s love and His wrath?
7. This is the first mention of Jesus as High Priest in Hebrews. It is one of the major themes of the epistle. What are some things that are similar about Jesus and the high priests in the Old Testament? What are some things that are different?
8. How does the Incarnation of the Son of God help Him to be a merciful and faithful High Priest?
9. Since Christ was tempted and remained sinless, He is able to help us when we are tempted. How is this truth a comfort and help to us?
