Jesus Greater Than Moses

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:1 - Therefore, holy brothers,[fn] you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:2 - who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God’s[fn] house.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:3 - For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses—as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:4 - (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.)
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:5 - Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:6 - but Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.[fn]

A Rest for the People of God

(Psa 95:7–11 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:7 - Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,
“Today, if you hear his voice,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:8 - do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
on the day of testing in the wilderness,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:9 - where your fathers put me to the test
and saw my works for forty years.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:10 - Therefore I was provoked with that generation,
and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart;
they have not known my ways.’
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:11 - As I swore in my wrath,
‘They shall not enter my rest.’”
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:12 - Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:13 - But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:14 - For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:15 - As it is said,
“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:16 - For who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not all those who left Egypt led by Moses?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:17 - And with whom was he provoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:18 - And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:19 - So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.
