Why Do I Need To Listen?
(Hebrews 1:1—2:4)

Discussion Questions

1. List the ways that Jesus is described in Heb 1:1-4. See if you can match those attributes with the OT citations in vv. 5-13.

2. Look more closely at v. 3. Just what might it mean that, “The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God?” How is this character evident in the world?

3. Jesus is compared to angels in these verses. According to 1:6, 7, 14, and 2:2 what do angels do? So, how is Jesus better?

4. What do you think of the warning of 2:1-4? How do we keep from drifting away?

5. Practically speaking, how do we communicate (or otherwise demonstrate) this greatness of Jesus to people around us?
