Hebrews 3:1-6
By Brother Mike (3-26-16; 50 minutes)
   


1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus ;
2
Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house .
3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house .
4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God .
5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after ;
6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end .


INTRODUCTION 

In Hebrews 3:1-6, the theme is that Christ is superior to Moses. Both Christ and Moses were faithful servants in their respective houses, but Christ is worthy of more honor because He is the builder of the house while Moses is only a part of the house. Moses shared in the building of the house, yes, but Christ, who is Yahweh, is the builder of all things. Furthermore, Moses was faithful in all his house, but Christ is a Son over His own house. That is, Moses was faithful in his house as a man, but Christ is faithful over His house as the Son of God. So, whereas Moses ruled as a part of the house, Christ rules over the entire house as the Son of God. And, we, the elect, are that house, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. So, Christ is superior to Moses because, unlike Moses, He is the builder of all things, and He is the ruler over the entire house whereas Moses ruled in the house as only a part of the house. Furthermore, Christ is superior to Moses because Christ is God made flesh whereas Moses was simply a man.


Verse 3:1
:   

1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus . . .

In so far as the Greek is concerned, this verse is translated well by the King James translators. The only two points I would like to bring out is, first, that the phrase, of the heavenly calling in the sentence, Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling should be translated as of a heavenly calling. And, second, the sentence translated as consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus is a command. To see these expressed in our verse, it would read,  

1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider [a command] the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus . . .  

Now, the first part of our verse reads, Wherefore, holy brethren. The word translated as holy is hagioi in the Greek, and as an adjective it is translated as holy as it is in our verse, Wherefore, holy brethren. But, when this word, holy, does not function as an adjective, it can be translated as holy ones, or saints. For instance, we read in Philippians 4, 

Php 4:22 All the saints [holy ones] salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household

And, again,

Col 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints [holy ones] in light . . . 

And, there are at least 63 other examples in the New Testament wherein the word holy is translated as saint(s) or holy ones. The point I am trying to make is that when our verse says, Wherefore, holy brethren, these holy brethren are the saints or holy ones. And, the saints or holy ones in the Bible refer to the elect, namely all those who have been spiritually born in Christ Jesus. For example, we read in Philippians 1,

Php 1:1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons . . . 

Or, for example, we read in Colossians 1, 

Col 1:2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ .   

The idea is that all those who are saved in Christ Jesus are the saints. The saints are not all those that the Catholic Church has deemed saints by way of good works, but the saints are all those who have truly been spiritually born again or born from above in Christ Jesus. And, they are not saints due to their own good works, but they are saints due to the good works of Christ, which have erased the sins of the elect through the death of Christ, and have resulted in the perfect righteousness of Christ being accounted to the elect in order to set them apart as the true saints in Christ Jesus. Indeed, the true saints of Christ Jesus are sinless, and, because Christ Jesus was the only sinless man, He is the only true saint. But, since the sins of the elect cannot be held against them, having been paid for by Christ, the elect are accounted by Yahweh as sinless - even though they are not - and, therefore, saints in Christ Jesus. Mother Teresa of the Catholic Church was not a saint, for the Catholic Church is a cult (see The Bible and Catholicism ), but all those who are accounted righteous by spiritual birth into Christ Jesus, these are the true saints, and this is due to the good works of Christ and not the good works of any human being to the glory of the Father, amen.   

Now, we read that the holy brethren, or saints - which are all those saved in Christ Jesus - are partakers of not the heavenly calling, but a heavenly calling. Heavenly means that which is in heaven so that these holy brethren, or saints, are partakers of a calling which is in heaven. This reminds us of Ephesians 1, where we read, 

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ . . . 

And, we read in Ephesians 2, 

Eph 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus . . .

So, to be in Christ through spiritual birth means that we are a part of a heavenly calling because we have been spiritually raised to heavenly places where we have been blessed with all spiritual blessings. Indeed, we have been spiritually raised to eternal life in Christ, and we are yet to shed these earthly bodies to be replaced with new heavenly bodies on the Last Day that are fit to live forever in the new heaven and earth that will be made from the ashes of this earth once this earth has been burned up with fire on the Last Day. This is what it means to be a part of a heavenly calling. 

Now, we are told that the holy brethren, or saints, who are partakers of a heavenly calling, are to consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus. This isn't just a mild statement to just think about the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, but it is a command in the Greek to consider [a command] the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus. In other words, consider carefully all that is about to be said about Christ Jesus, our Apostle and High Priest, for this is a command. The word translated as Apostle simply means he who is sent, and the word translated as High Priest is taken from the Old Testament, and it refers to the Priest who once a year offered animal sacrifice for the sins of the people in the most holy place of the tabernacle. This High Priest was a type of Christ who offered Himself as the sacrifice for the elect, once and for all. But, let's now, in obedience to our Lord's command, consider what Hebrews chapter 3 has to say about our Apostle and High Priest, Christ Jesus, so let's move on to verse 2 of Hebrews chapter 3.


Verse 3:2

2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses [was faithful] in all his house

In this verse, we first read, Who was faithful to him that appointed him. Actually, the verb participle translated as was in the sentence, Who was faithful to him that appointed him is a present tense verb participle, and the first word translated as Who does not appear in the Greek. So, our verse is more literally translated,  

2 Being faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses [was faithful] in all his house .

Furthermore, the phrase translated as was faithful in the sentence, as also Moses was faithful in all his house is not in the Greek. So, our verse is now translated,

2 Being faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses in all his house

The point being made, of course, is that both Christ and Moses were faithful in their respective houses.

But, what is the house of Christ? And, what was the house of Moses? We can see what the house of Christ is in a verse like Hebrews 3:6:  

Heb 3:6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end

And, we read in 1Peter 2, 

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ

From these verses, we can conclude that the house of Christ refers to all the elect who are saved in Christ Jesus. These are the ones who will hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end, and these are the ones who, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. But, whereas the house of Christ is a spiritual house made up of all the elect, the house of Moses was all those Israelites who came up out of Egypt by signs and wonders to wander through the desert for 40 years on their way to the Promised Land. So, what we see, then, is that the house of Christ refers to the elect, and the house of Moses refers to all the Israelites under his charge who came up from Egypt and wandered the wilderness for 40 years during their sojourn to the Promised Land. 

Now, it is important to recognize that when we read that Moses was faithful in all his house, it is a general statement to mean that, yes, Moses was overall faithful. But, was he perfectly faithful as Christ was faithful in His house? Absolutely not! For, if you will remember, Moses was once commanded by Yahweh to strike a rock once in order for Yahweh to bring forth water from that rock for the Israelites to drink. Instead, out of anger and frustration, Moses struck the rock twice. This was a clear violation of the command of Yahweh. We begin to read of this account in Exodus 17 where we read, 

Ex 17:4 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me .
5 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go .
6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock [once], and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel
7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not ?  

And, we read another account of the same event in Numbers 20 where we read, 

Nu 20:7 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying ,
8 Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink
9 And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded him .
10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock
11 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also .
12 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them
13 This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them .    

What we see by comparing these two accounts of the same event is that Moses was commanded to strike the rock once, but, instead, he struck the rock twice. This resulted in Moses not being allowed to bring the children of Israel into the Promised Land. In fact, he died and was buried before the children of Israel entered the Promised Land as we read in Deuteronomy 34 where we read, 

1 And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the LORD shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan ,
2 And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, unto the utmost sea
3 And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, unto Zoar .
4 And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither
5 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD .  

Now, this one account of Moses being unfaithful to the Lord wherein he struck the rock twice instead of once has an important application to our day. You see, Moses is a type of Christ who represents those who believe in Jesus Christ, and who, like Moses, have been overall, in general, faithful. But, like Moses, they will not be allowed into the Promised Land, which is heaven because they struck the rock twice instead of just once - the Rock represents Christ. This is a picture of all those who believe that Christ was struck twice by having to have been struck on the cross twice instead of just once. They say that Christ was first struck before the foundation of the world when He paid for sin, and that He was also struck a second time when He came to earth in 33 AD to demonstrate what He had already done. So, just like Moses, these so-called believers have struck the rock twice with the result that they, like Moses, will not be allowed into the Promised Land; that is, heaven. In other words, these people are not saved. Yes, they appear to be faithful and so saved, but here the Lord rolls back the curtain, and we see that those who are advocating that Christ died, or was struck, for sins before the foundation of the world, and that He later came to earth and died, or was struck, a second time, are advocating a false gospel (see The Demonstration Gospel is a False Gospel ). And, as a result, like Moses, they will not be allowed into heaven because they have departed from the true gospel, and they are taking pleasure in a false Christ. As we read in Deuteronomy 32,    

De 32:31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges

That is, their Christ is not our Christ, but their Christ is a false Christ. We are warned to look out for another Jesus, another Spirit, and another Gospel in 2Corinthians 11 where we read,  

3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ .
4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him .   

In addition, we are told what the true gospel is through which we are saved in 1Corinthians 15, which reads, 

1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand ;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain .
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures ;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures :
5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve . . .   

First of all, notice that the true gospel is that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: and that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve. In that He was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve when He died for sins makes it clear that Christ died for sins according to the scriptures on earth in 33 AD when Cephas and the twelve were present. This means, without question, that the true gospel is that Christ died for sins on earth and not before the foundation of the world. Therefore, the gospel which says that Christ died for sins before the foundation of the world is a false gospel. It is as simple, and as clear as this: Any gospel which claims that Christ died for sins at any other time than when He came to earth is a false gospel, and, because the Demonstration Gospel teaches that Christ died for sins before the foundation of the world and not when Christ came to earth, we know that it is a false gospel.  

Second, pay careful attention to what 1Corinthians 15 verse 2 says. It says,  

2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain .    

And, what is it that the Apostle Paul preached unto us? Why, we just learned that it was that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures when He was on earth when Cephas and the twelve were living. It is through this gospel, by which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. And, to keep in memory what Paul preached is to keep in mind that Christ died for our sins [when He was on earth] according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day[when He was on earth] according to the scriptures. If you don't believe this, but believe that Christ died for sins before the world, you have believed in vain, and, like Moses, you will not be allowed into the Promised Land, namely heaven.    

Now, in that the Demonstration Gospel is a false gospel has great ramifications. It means that Mr. Camping who first taught this gospel is an example of a man who, like Solomon, fell away from the true gospel in his old age. This doesn't mean that Mr. Camping didn't hold to a lot of truth, even as Solomon held a lot of truth and even gave us a part of the scriptures, but it does put in question his salvation, even as Solomon's falling away in his old age puts into question his salvation. Yes, Mr. Camping was given to us in order to reveal the timeline of history as well as to help us toward many truths, but, in so far as having constructed a false gospel by which many are still deceived, he is accursed. As we read in Galatians 1:8, and to which I am sure that Mr. Camping would agree,    

Ga 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed .  

Well, let's return to our verse, which says, 

2 [Christ] Being faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses in all his house

So, what our verse tells us is that Christ is faithful to Yahweh in that He came to earth as a man and died for the sins of the elect, and continues to minister on their behalf in heaven as their High Priest, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. Of course, this doesn't mean that Moses was perfect in all his dealings as Christ was, but it means that Moses was overall faithful in his service to the Israelites, as Christ was overall faithful to the Father in what He had accomplished. But, unlike Moses, Christ was without sin, and this is a fact that makes Christ superior to Moses, which is the theme of Hebrews, Chapter 3. And, because Christ who ushered in the New Covenant is superior to Moses who ushered in the Old Testament, the New Covenant must be superior to the Old Covenant or Testament. 


Verse 3:3
:  

3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house .   

In this verse we first read, For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses. The verb, was counted worthy is in the Perfect Tense and Passive Voice of the Greek language. The Perfect Tense reveals that when Christ was counted worthy was in the past, which we can reason took place upon His resurrection from the dead when He had completed His task of dieing for the elect, and the result of His having been counted worthy of more glory than Moses continues on, in full effect, namely that He continues to be counted worthy of more glory than Moses right into the present (see The Perfect Tense ). Now, in that our verb was counted worthy is in the Passive Voice means that this man [Christ] in having been counted worthy was passive in the matter. That is, Christ did not count Himself as worthy, but the Father counted Him as worthy. So, Christ did not take the honor of worthiness upon Himself, but it was granted to Him by the Father. Christ was passive in the matter.  

There are many reasons why Christ was accounted worthy of more glory than Moses. First, as we already mentioned, Christ died for the sins of His elect. Moses never did such a thing, so we can see why Christ was counted of more glory than Moses. Second, Christ won the right to rule over the elect by leading a sinless life. Moses, on the other hand, although He did lead an overall faithful life, he did not lead a sinless life, and so did not win the right to rule over any thing. Hence, we can see why Christ was counted of more glory than Moses. Third, Christ is Yahweh made flesh. He created all things, and upholds all things by the Word of His power. Moses, on the other hand, was merely a man, so, once again, we can see why Christ was, and is, counted of more glory than Moses. There are just so many things that make Christ so much greater and better than Moses that we can clearly see why Christ is counted so much more worthy of more glory than Moses. And, because Christ is clearly accounted worthy of more glory than Moses, so, too, the New Covenant is accounted worthy of more glory than the Old Covenant because Christ brought in the New Covenant whereas Moses brought in the Old Covenant. Therefore, the inference is that we should give ourselves over to the New Covenant, to Christ Jesus, for He is so much greater, and more worthy, than Moses.   

Next, we are given another reason as to why this man [Christ] was counted worthy of more glory than Moses: it is because he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house. This is just common sense. When we see a wonderful and beautiful house that has been built, would we give more glory to the house, or would we give more glory to the one who designed and built the house? To the one who designed and built the house, of course. In fact, the house that was built is not worthy of the glory because it could not build itself. But, the designer and builder is worthy of all the glory as He is the creator. Likewise, Christ is worthy of far more glory than Moses because Moses was simply a part of the house, but Christ is the creator of the whole house. Indeed, Moses was an important part of the house, but he is not the creator of the whole house; Christ is. So, we can see, once again, how that Christ is worthy of far more glory than Moses.  


Verse 3:4

4 For every house is builded by some [man]; but he that built all things [is] God .  

Here, Yahweh continues the argument in support of Christ being worthy of more glory than Moses. Whereas Moses helped build the house, For every house is builded by someone; but he that built all things is God. So, even though Moses played a part in the building of Israel (the house), God built all things including Moses. This is another reason as to why Christ, who is God, is superior to Moses, and, hence, the New Covenant or Testament, which was brought in by Christ, is superior to the Old Covenant or Testament, which was brought in by Moses.  

Now, since Yahweh is the builder of all things, we see why He should always receive all the glory. Humankind has built many things, yes, but Yahweh is the builder of humankind. So, it is not any humans who should be praised for building the pyramids, or building rockets which go into space, or discovering cures for illnesses, or creating the internet and computers, or building skyscrapers, or airplanes, or any thing for that matter, but it is Yahweh who should receive all of the glory because He is the builder of all things. Humankind likes to believe that they are so great, for look at all our accomplishments, they think. But, if it weren't for God, they wouldn't even exist, and let's remember that humankind was made from nothing but dust. So let's give the praise to whom it is really due, namely Yahweh, who is the Father, who is Jesus Christ, who is the Holy Spirit, and, yet, there is only one God, who never had a beginning, and who will never have an end. Indeed, let's give Him the praise, for all the ingenuity of humankind as well as all things originated from Him. He deserves all the glory, Amen.   


Verse 3:5

5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after . . . 

Here, the first part of our verse reads, And Moses verily was faithful in all his house. The only word that I would change in this sentence is the word verily. Although it can be translated this way, I prefer the word indeed instead of verily. So, the first part of our verse now reads, And Moses indeed was faithful in all his house. Now, in that Moses indeed was faithful in all his house does not mean that he was sinless, but this simply means that Moses, overall, was faithful to his calling.  

Next, we find that Moses indeed was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after. Actually, the phrase, which were to be spoken after is the translation of a verb participle that is in the Future Tense and Passive Voice, which would be translated, that shall be being spoken. So, our entire verse would now read,   

5 And Moses indeed was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things that shall be being spoken . . .  

The idea is that Moses was a witness of things that shall be being spoken by others in the future. And, Moses, he would be passive in the matter, which is why, in our verse, the verb participle that shall be being spoken was written in the Passive Voice. 


Verse 3:6

6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end .  

In the previous verse, we were told that Moses indeed was faithful in all his house, but, in comparison, we are told in this verse that Christ as a Son over his own house. That is, whereas Moses was faithful in all his house, Christ is faithful as a Son over his own house. Once again, Moses was faithful in his house, but Christ is faithful, as a Son, over His house. This reveals a great difference between Moses and Christ. Moses was faithful in his house, which means that he was actually a part of the house in which he was faithful, whereas Christ is over His house, which means that He is not a part of the house, but He is in charge over His house. What's more, He is in charge over His house as a Son, namely He is the Son of Yahweh who we learned previously in Hebrews is the creator and upholder of all things. Indeed, He is Yahweh made to be flesh and blood. Therefore, the teaching is that Christ is so much greater than Moses. Moses was simply a man, who was a part of the house, but Christ, the anointed, is not only a man who was faithful, but He is also God who is in charge over His house. O how much greater and superior is Christ than Moses! And, the underlying message is that, therefore, the New Covenant or New Testament is superior to the Old Covenant or OldTestament because the superior person, Christ, spoke in the New Covenant, but the inferior person, Moses, spoke in the Old Covenant. So, let's let go of the inferior Old Covenant and practices and move on to the superior New Covenant and practices is the message that the Lord is giving us.   

Now, we are told just who the house of Christ is, for we read, whose house are we. That is, the house is not a literal house as we would normally think of a house as being, but the house is all those who have been granted the gift of faith to believe in Christ - the elect. We read of this same house in 1Peter 2, which states,   

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ

So, the house is not a literal house, but a spiritual house, and each of the elect are counted as lively stones which make up this house.  

Next, we are told that we are the house of Christ, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. Does this mean that we have to do something in order to be the house of Christ? Absolutely not! But, if we are the true house of Christ, we will hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. This is called The Perseverance of the Saints, namely that if we are truly Yahweh's elect, we will persevere unto the end. That is, we will hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. But, on the other hand, if we are not the elect, we will not hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. So, are you one of the elect? Then hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. By this, you will not have earned the right to be called the house of Yahweh, but you will have proved that you are already the house of Yahweh.   

Now, what is the hope that we, the elect, must hold fast? Why, it is gospel of Jesus Christ: that He died for our sins on earth according to the scriptures; that He was buried; and that He rose from the dead on the 3rd day according to the scriptures. This is what we are to hold fast with confidence and with rejoicing and glorying. It is the hope that in the end, we will rise from the dead to receive new bodies that will never die, and that we will live out all eternity in a new heaven and earth where righteousness dwells without pain and suffering, without sorrow and sadness, without death. And, this was all made possible by Christ, who is Yahweh made flesh, dieing for our sins and rising from the dead to give us new life in Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.  


CONCLUSION 

We were commanded to consider our Apostle and High Priest, Christ Jesus. And, by doing so, we discovered that He is so much greater than Moses. Both Christ and Moses were faithful servants to the one who appointed them, but Christ is worthy of greater honor because He is the builder of the house whereas Moses was simply a part of the house. In fact, Christ who was God made flesh is the builder of all things, but Moses was only a builder in his house. In addition, Moses was faithful as a man in his house, but Christ was faithful as the Son of God over His house. In other words, Moses was just a man, but Christ is the Son of God who was Yahweh in the flesh, who is the creator and builder of all things. And, as the Son of God, Christ rules over the house whereas Moses was only a part of the house. So, Christ is superior to Moses because, unlike Moses, He is the builder of all things, and He is the ruler over the entire house whereas Moses ruled in the house as only a part of the house. Furthermore, Christ is superior to Moses because Christ is God made flesh whereas Moses was simply a man. 
 

Now, to the true elect of Yahweh, may the LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace .
