(An In-Depth Study of Hebrews) 

Commentary

Perfect!

Hebrews 2:10-18

Outline

Verse 10:

Complex sentence – A/For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist,/ B/in bringing many sons to glory,/ C/ should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering./[1]

A[God the Father said “it’s fitting”]

B[God the Father’s children are being lead to glory]

C[He makes Jesus, the founder of the children’s salvation, perfect through suffering]

How was it fitting?

What kind of leader is Jesus?

How can the perfect be made perfect?

  1. How was it fitting – 

Christ fully shared human nature, as v. 11a stated, vv. 11b–13 confirmed, and vv. 16–17 will reaffirm.

The purpose of Christ’s incarnation and death was to benefit (glorify, v. 10; sanctify, v. 11; liberate, v. 15; purify from sins, v. 17) his people.

  1. What kind of leader is Jesus – 

Servant-Leader:

Sympathetic High Priest – Verse 17

Victorious Older Brother – Verses 14, 18

  1. How can the perfect be made perfect – 

Means of perfecting:

Tested and proven

Already perfect (4:15; 7:26; 9:14)

Learning Obedience (5:8-9)

Result of perfecting:

Unity and Family (Connection between verse 10 and 11)

LIFE APPLICATIONS:

We are understood.

We rest in a perfect finished work.

We are loved and accepted in a perfect family.
