Hebrews 6
May 24, 2020 Season 112 Episode 11
Chuck Smith, Jr

We left off last week with the writer complaining (or scolding)
He had much more to say about Jesus in his role of a priest,
     - but it would be too difficult to explain it all to them
         • they had become lazy listeners
             ◦ as a result, they were not ready to go further or deeper
         • but the truth is, the writer must have believed they were ready,
             ◦ because after this chapter he continues with his previous subject
             ◦ the one that he said would be "hard to explain"
     - experienced public speakers can see what the writer is doing
         • he wants to make sure he has their attention
             ◦ so he shocks them
             ◦ and he does this with what William Barclay described as
               “one of the most terrible passages in scripture.”
