- In what sense does the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity, learn, and specifically learn obedience
- In what sense did suffering make the Son of God complete?
- One might think that the Son of God would somehow get some special treatment but He had to learn through suffering, why?
Tentatively, this is where I am on these. It seems to me that the chapter division is unfortunate. Hebrews 4:14 – 16 seems to fit with chapter 5. As you know the chapter and verses were added later and sometimes they break up the thought of the author. It seems that this is the case here. One option, to which I am leaning at the moment, is that perfect in 5:9 refers to the end of chapter 4. Because He suffered He can sympathize. It is for that reason we can draw near and expect grace.
I am still working on this. This is a rich, rich vein that is not mined quickly. It would be worth your time to dig in here as well.
We will end tomorrow with an observation on the last part of Hebrews 5.
