An Observation

Hebrews 2 is remarkably similar in themes and apologetic material to 1 Corinthians 15.

  1. I’ve been thinking on this over the weekend, too, and am touching on it in tomorrow’s sermon. I found this to be encouraging: Heb 2:14-15 points to Christ’s *death* as a great victory over death. Most of 1 Cor 15 points to His *resurrection* as a victory over death. And 1 Cor 15:26 points to His *return* as the ultimate victory over death.

    Particularly interesting is that Heb 2:14 and 1 Cor 15:26 use the same term (katargeo) in what appears to be an “already, not yet” manner.

  2. Agree. Tying Heb. 2 back to Gen. 3:15, Hebrews strongly hints at the resurrection, for He would not have crushed the serpent’s head and delivered from the fear of death if He stayed buried, certainly.

    I agree, also, that it definitely is a case of already, not yet, especially when Rom. 16 says the serpent’s head will soon be crushed. Makes Psalm 8 make sense.
