Preparing for the Sermon - Heb. 2:14-18

The Book of Hebrews square

Prepare your heart for the Sermon by looking through these suggestions that will assist you in making the most of our time together hearing God's Word.

You will find suggestions for thinking more critically through the passage, meditating more intently on the text, and prayerfully seeking wisdom to deepen your understanding of the passage to be preached this Sunday.

Carefully Think

  • What are the results of Jesus "partaking of" these things (v. 14), according to the text?
  • Why might it be significant that Jesus is a high priest "in the service of God" (v. 17)?
  • What sort of "help" does the passage indicate Jesus gives to the offspring of Abraham?

Prayerfully Meditate

  • Why do you think that it was necessary for Jesus to be human in order to defeat the devil?
  • What is the purpose or function of a "high priest"?
  • What does it mean "to make propitiation" (v. 17)?
