For example. Look at 2:10 and 5:9 – 10. There is a logic that is built around the use of that word that I missed the first several times through the book. It is a logic that I am still testing, but it highlights the value of looking for repetition of the use of terms throughout a book.
Trace the argument through those verses and you get:
- Author of our salvation is made perfect through suffering
- The son learned obedience through suffering
- The son was made perfect as a result
- Does that suggest that perfection has something to do with obedience… i.e. a syllogistic construction
The point is, careful observation is key to unpacking what the Bible is saying. The Holy Spirit inspired the grammar and the vocabulary. We can learn much through making these types of observations.
