Hebrews: Family Values

  1. "Abraham ... offered up Isaac ... his only begotten son."

    (And this was a good thing? How messed up is that?) 11:17

  2. The Israelites kept the passover and sprinkled blood on doorposts so that God wouldn't kill their firstborn children (like he did the Egyptians in Exodus 12:29). 11:28
  3. "What son is he whom the father chasteneth not?"
    What kind of father doesn't beat his sons now and then? 12:7
  4. Those who disobeyed the Old Testament law were killed without mercy. It will be much worse for those who displease Jesus. 10:28-29
