There are five main exhortations in Hebrews. In the first warning (Hebrews 2:1-4), the writer points out the danger of drifting from the Word because of neglect. In this second exhortation (Hebrews 3:7-4:13), the author explains the danger of doubting and disbelieving the Word because of the hardness of heart. These Jewish Christians would be very familiar with the background he’s referring to: the exodus of Israel from Egypt and their unbelief in the wilderness. In explaining Psalm 95, his purpose is to warn the readers that if the punishment for disobedience of the law was stern, then the punishment for faithlessness to the gospel is even more severe.

God’s rest has several meanings in Scripture:

· Peace with God now because of our relationship with Christ through faith (Matthew 11:28; Hebrews 4:1, 3)
· Our future eternal life with Christ (Hebrews 4:8-11)

All of these meanings were probably familiar to these Hebrew Christians.
