How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him (Heb. 2:3)For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. (Gal. 1:12)
Salute all them that have the rule over you, and all the saints. They of Italy salute you. (13:24)Grace be with you all. Amen (13:25)The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen (IIThes. 3:18)Grace be with you all. Amen (Tit. 3:15)
General background
Who is the author?Who is the audience?
Addressed to Christians from Jewish background
God …spake…unto the fathers by the prophets (Heb. 1:1)When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years (Heb. 3:9)
At risk of departing from the faith

For if they escaped not who refused him thatspakeon earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him thatspeakethfrom heaven (Heb. 12:25)

Several themes, e.g.
Sin (1:3; 2:17)Christ as High Priest (Ch. 2, 4, 7)Covenants (Ch. 7, 8)
Outline of Hebrews
The pre-eminence of Christ –Manner of God’s speaking to us
[1] God, who at sundry times and in divers mannersspakein time past unto the fathers by the prophets,[2] Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.
No room for escape regarding your responsibility:
Seethat ye refuse not him thatspeaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him thatspakeon earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away fromhim thatspeakethfromheaven(12:25)
God spoke in various ways
Face to face - Moses (Ex. 33:11; Deut. 34:10)UrimandThummin(Numb. 27:21)Dreams and visions (Numb 12:6)Audibly – Samuel and other prophets (1 Sam 3)Directly through Angel of God (Jud. 13:9)
Dreadful if:
God did not speak through these means (1 Sam 28:6)God did speak but the people refused to listen (Jer. 29:17-19)
Contrast God speaking:
Old Testament
Unto the fathersDivers mannersAt sundry times; in shadows
New Testament
To usOne manner: His Son,theWordFull & complete message
Why the focus on Christ?
Risk of falling back into Jewish shadow worshipFor the law having a shadow of good things to come (10:1)In that hesaith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that whichdecayethandwaxethold is ready to vanish away. (8:13)
