Hebrews Lesson 2: You Need Jesus! (Hebrews 2:1-18)

February 9, 2022


The consequences of neglecting Jesus are severe. (Hebrews 2:1-4)

  1. Pay close attention to Jesus or we drift away. (Hebrews 2:1)

  2. Sin will be punished and we ignore this reality at our peril. (Hebrews 2:2-3)

  3. This truth was accompanied by signs and wonders. (Hebrews 2:4)


  • What ideas do you have for how a man can avoid a gradual drift away from God and His truth?
  • In Hebrews 2:1, what is the author referring to when he says “what we have heard?”
  • Reflect on Hebrews 2:3. What is the message (application) for us from this verse?

Jesus humbled Himself for your salvation. (Hebrews 2:5-9)

  1. Jesus is superior, but He became a little lower. (Hebrews 2:5-8)

  2. Jesus is crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death. (Hebrews 2:9a)

  3. Jesus suffered so that we won’t have to. (Hebrews 2:9b)


  • Share one specific way in which you can humble yourself and serve those around you in the coming week.
  • Why did Christ have to take the form of a man and lower Himself to save us? How should we respond to Christ’s sacrifice for us?
  • Look at Hebrews 2:8. What is not under Christ’s rule or dominion? What impact does it have on you knowing that everything is controlled by Christ?

Jesus came to bring us into His family. (Hebrews 2:10-18)

  1. Jesus made everything for his own glory. (Hebrews 2:10)

  2. We are the brothers of Christ. (Hebrews 2:11-13)

  3. Jesus was a man just like us. (Hebrews 2:14-15)

  4. Jesus can identify with us in every respect. (Hebrews 2:16-18)


  • Think about and discuss some implications that Jesus calls himself your brother. Is there anything we should do in response to this truth?
  • How does knowing that death is not the end, but Christ defeated death, change the way we live now?
  • Think about the incarnation. What characteristics did Jesus take on as a human? Why did He do it?
  • How did Jesus render Satan powerless and what does that mean for us?
  • How is it beneficial that Jesus was tempted like we are? Based on His life and example, what lessons can we learn about responding to temptation?



    • What do you need to apply to your life from this chapter? What changes do you need to make? What do you need to obey?
