The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
He had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.
For our God is a consuming fire.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
May the God of peace, ...that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will.
Encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.
Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death — that is, the devil.
