Epistle to the Hebrews




Chapter 6









  • A Body of Divinity (Thomas Watson), “A Preliminary Discourse to Catechising”, p2
    • “‘The apostate (says Tertullian) seems to put God and Satan in balance, and having weighed both their services, prefers the devil’s service, and proclaims him to be the best master: and, in this sense, may be said to put Christ to open shame.’ Heb vi 6. He will never suffer for the truth, but be as a soldier that leaves his colours, and runs over to the enemy’s side; he will fight on the devil’s side for pay.”

Chapter 12



  • Christianity & Liberalism (J. Gresham Machen), “God and Man” p62
    • “He is the Author of the being of all, and as such might well be called the Father of all. He cares for all, and for that reason also might be called the Father of all. Here and there the figure of fatherhood seems to be used to designate this broader relationship which God sustains to all men or even to all created beings. So in an isolated passage in Hebrews, God is spoken of as the “Father of spirits”. Here perhaps it is the relation of God, as creator, to the personal beings who He has created which is in view.”
