What Does it Mean?

This is where we begin searching outside of Chapter 1 for more information. Where do we start? Right in our Bible is an excellent first stop. Many Bibles have cross references to other places in scripture which reference the same topic or passage. We will see this often in Hebrews as so much of the letter links us to the Old Testament (OT). The author knew the readers/hearers would be familiar with these original scripture texts referenced, making it the perfect way to drive any point home concerning the superiority of Christ.

If your Bible doesn’t have cross references, start your process with these:

2 Corinthians 4:4-6

Psalm 2:7

2 Samuel 7:14

1 Chronicles 17:13

Deuteronomy 32:43

Psalm 97:7

Psalm 104:4

Psalm 45:6-7

Psalm 110:1

If you feel lost in these references, don’t be afraid to look at the surrounding text for more clues. See you here tomorrow for resources to help with further interpretation.
