Yeshua Greater than Moses
1Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, partners in a heavenly calling, take notice of Yeshua—the Emissary and Kohen Gadol we affirm.
2He was faithful to the One who appointed Him in His house—as was Moses also.
3For He has been considered worthy of more glory than Moses, even as the builder of the house has more honor than the house.
4For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.
5Now Moses surely was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, for a witness of things to be spoken later.
6But Messiah, as Son, is over God’s house—and we are His house, if we hold firm to our boldness and what we are proud to hope.
Listen and Obey, or Harden and Fall Away
7Therefore, just as the Ruach ha-Kodesh says, “Today if you hear His voice,
8do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness.
9There your fathers put Me to the test, though they saw My works for forty years.
10Therefore I was provoked by this generation, and I said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, and they have not known My ways.’
11As I swore in my wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’”
12Take care, brothers and sisters, that none of you has an evil heart of unbelief that falls away from the living God.
13But encourage one another day by day—as long as it is called “Today”—so that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
14For we have become partners of Messiah, if we hold our original conviction firm until the end.
15As it is said, “Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”
16Now which ones heard and rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt with Moses?
17And with whom was He provoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness?
18And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest? Was it not to those who were disobedient?
19So we see that they were not able to enter in because of lack of trust.
