Heb. 2 (end of intro theme)
the 144 witness upon earth ;
suffering + salvation explained
(in relation to this body)
and the choice of each soul
[2021-13.may]

 

[13 may : posted : all]
 
theme : continued from chapter 1
 
… see note in top of previous chapter for context (-also of this one) ;

 
corruptions : 150%
… we’re tired to list them again , see the other Hebrew chapters for descriptions ;
by track record this chapter is 100% contextually restored ;
 
separate note :
… we still need a ‘chapter 0′ (as introduction to chapter 1) ,
but we don’t know yet – at this point in time – if Esau displaced it 
(meaning that one of the next chapters could have been chapter 0) , or destroyed it ;
yet we ARE sure that after this 2 ,
Paul will discuss how the theme ties in to their ówn situation ;

 

Heb. 2 [-as introduction part II]

 
                                                                                                                                (continued : about the 144)

 
[1 : direct continued from ch. 1 :]                                                                                  [1 : the reason :]
1
because – [+they] (will have been) attentive – (to-) this=the – [..] angels=prophets ,
b
[+as] – (having) heared=searched        +

(the-) (..words..) (égo=logos)lest=which – time=God (pote=theos) – (..spoke..) ;

                                                                                                                              [2 : identification + promise :]
2                      
[=and] – [=after] – [..] [+his] – word       +                                                [2 : attested in prophets]

spoken – through – (the-) (..prophets..) – (will have) been – (..understóod..) [-by them] ,
b
[next : now we need some identification about the 144,000 :]

and=then – all – (..the sons..) – [..] (of-) (..Ishral..) (?)    +                 [<< or : and daughters ?]
c
(will) receive – [+their] righteous – reward ;         +

above 2 :
… we’re not sure what term Paul could’ve used for the ‘first’ identification of the 144 ;
perhaps just “remnant” or indeed ‘sons and daughters’ (juxtaposed to ‘their people’) ;

                                                                                 (next : 144 are changed – and become witnesses)

                                                                                                                      [theme develops quite fast now :]

3                                                                                                                                 [3-4 : attested in prophets]

[+then] – [+he] (will make) – we=them – to escape – [+this] (..world..) (télikoutos=kosmos) ,
b
[+and] save – [+their] (..soul..)        +                                                              [b : ‘beginning’, see ch.1]

(..+out of..) – (..+the body..) – (in) which – [+she] (was) caught – [+since] (the-) beginning ;
c
[next : now we need a direct bridge to line 4 :]

d
[+then] – [+he] (will) (..send them back..) – to – us=their – (..people..) ;         [<< lineup]

                                                                                                                                           [the 144 will witness :]

[+as] – (=the) witnesses – [..] (of-) God ,                                                           [<< see Revelation]
b
and=who – (..+(will) perform..) – signs – and – wonders [-on earth] ,
c
and=as – (the-) different (-type) – miracles – allotted – and=by – (the-) [..1x..] – Spirit ,
d
according to – [..] [=their] (-own) – desire ;      [<< ultimately God’s, ofcourse ; see Rev.]

 

part I b                                                                   describing the situation in 1st half of Revelation

 

below section :
… Paul was almost rúnning to get past the introduction of the 144,000 witnesses ;
next :
… remember that the Hebrews were – likely – unfamiliar with this theme ;
therefore wé (-too) need search comprehensible terms and a logical buildup ;

5                                                                                                                    [next 5-7 : attested in prophets]
because – (..at [that-] time..) ,

angels=demons – (will have) subdued – the – world – [+and] – (..the people..) ,
b
about=who [=’people’] – (will) (..suffer..) – (by-) which=them [=’demons’] ;

                                                                                                                  [6 c : ‘visiting’ seems appropriate :]
6
[=but] – (=the) witnesses [=’noun’] – (..(will) comfort..) – any=their – where=people ,
b
saying [-to them]      +
what=that – [..1x..]man=God – (has) that=not – mindful=forgotten – him=them ,
c
or=therefore – [+his] sons – [+and] man=daughters – (are) visiting – him=them ;

next 7 :
… though the expression (in 6) is “the sons and daughters of God”,
the point (in 7) is that the people will recognize their sóuls , just like they are souls :

7    
[=and] – (..the people..) – (will) (..see..) [=’or : recognize’] – (the-) angels=souls      +

(having been) crowned – [..] – [+with] glory – and – honor ,              [<< the Original]
b
[the glory-] and=as – him=their – (..+new..) (..body..) (kathistémi=sôma)                   +
c
over=which (is) – the – work – (of-) the – hand – (of-) you=God (su=theos) ;            +

                                                                             (next : reason why the 144 have their Original)

                                                                                                                 [next 8 : start of juxtaposition :]
8
[8 : w/ utterly corrupted ; our attempt :]
a
[=who] [=’144k souls’]       +
(will) (..+nót..) – (have been) subjected – [=to] – [..] [physical-] feet=death ,
b
[next : impossible :]

for=because         +
[..] [..] nothing=their – [..] (..soul..) (panta=psychê) – (..died..) – (to-) (the own-) (..body..)
C
him=which – [+she] (..hated..) ;                                                 [<< compare juxta in line 9 c]
d
[=for] – [..] [=she] see=desired – (..to have..) – (..the glorious one..) – (for-) all=her ;

                                                                                                                                       [next 9 : now about Jacob]
9
[=but] – [..] (..the óther..) – [..] angels=souls [=’as the people’] ,         +
b
(..+who..) – (will) (..nót..) – (have) see=desired – (the-) Jesus=glorious one [=’new body’] ,
c
because – [+they] [=’as souls’] (will have) death=lóved – the (-own) – suffering=body
                                                                                                                                                                (pathéma=sôma) ,
d
(will be) crowned – and=with – glory – and – honour , [=as] – [+her] (..new..) (?) – (..body..)  +
e
(only-) for=AFTER – [=she] [=’soul’] (will have) tasted [=’or: experienced’][-physical] death ;  

                                                                                                                                      (conclusion of the above)
next 10 :
likely a conclusion now as “because receiving life cannot happen without suffering” 

 
10
[10 : w/ too corrupt : our attempt :]                                                                  [10 : context is Valid :]
a
because , [..1x..][..] through – [..] the – (..sacrice / work..) – (of-) (..Christ..) ,    +

[..3x..] [+he] (will) lead – many – sons=souls – unto – glory ,                 [<< ALL saved souls]
c
[+but] their – [..] salvation – (will) [-only] (..happen..) (?)         +
d
[+when] – [+they] [=’any soul’] (will have been) (..purged..) (?) – through – suffering 
                                                                                                                                                  (teleioó=katharizô?) ;

 
part I c                                            the invitation  >> the choice >> and the consequence

 
next 11 :
… in prophets , God often made the same invitation , as “who of you will….”,
the problem is just that the invitations were corrupted : NOT that He didn’t invite ,
hence Christ repeated that same invitation in “the wedding parable” ;
2.
… this would mean “that in the past 3 years , every soul received a nudge, an invitation
(and perhaps that’s why ‘3 years’ were needed…?) ,
indifferent whether they had heared of the ‘restored theme in prophets’ :
the (=our) understanding of them is merely the timeframe when the invitations stárted ;
3.
… we could only do this 11 after having done 12-13 below ;
 
11
[w/ totally corrupted :]                                           [11 :  context : see note about wedding-parable]
a
for=now , [=when] – [..] (the-) (..+word..) – (will have béen) (..understood..) ,          [<< part I]
b
and=then – [..] which=God – (will be) reason=inviting (aitia=kaleó)     +    [<< was swapped]

[..] one=every – all=soul (pantes=psychê) – to sanctify [-herself] ;
c
[+but] – brothers=many – (will) not – (..hearken..) – (to-) them=him – [..11b..][<< lineup]

 
12                                                                                  [12-13 : important because prophets quotes :]
12
KJV :                                                                                         [concordances say : taken from Ps.22:22]
“saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren ,                                       [‘psalms’ ? really..?]                      
in the midst of the church I will sing praise unto thee.”
13
KJV :                                                                                             [concordances : taken from Is. 8: 17-18]
“And again, I will put my trust in him. And again ,
behold I and the children which God hath given me.”
12-13
[restored according to theme in our (-still incomplete) Is.8:18 , ‘the message in prophets’ ,
where ‘the covenant of God’ is always “the other reality”, hence 12 c :]
a
[+as] saying=( it is) written :                                                                   [b + c : Is.8:18 b – see index]
b
I=they] [=’144’] (will) declare – the – name=covenant – [..] [..] (of-) brethren=God ,      +
c
me=the (-one) – sing praise=dwelling – [..] in=at – (the-) (..mountain..) – (of-) (..tsiun..) ;
13
and=but – again=people – will – I=not – trust=listen – in=to        +
b
[6x : moved to c]
the – children=sons [=’144’] – whom – God – gave – (to-) me=them [=’people’]         +
c
[=as] – [=a] – (..sign..) ;   [3x : deleted]                                                                     [<< line 4 : ‘signs’]

 
.. so what can be next ..?
the (restored-) key term here is “sign” : the latter always causes a split, a new situation
(that is , when “a sign is given” – so not as in line 4 – and compare Is.8 after line 18) ;
option :
because “the people rejected something , now they themselves will be rejected” :
 
                                                                                                                                                 (next : about Jacob)
 
14
[=but] – [=because] – the – children=people        +                                            [<< in that time]

(will have) (..rejécted..) – (..the word..) – [..] (of-) (..God..) ,          [<< as the right version’]
b
[=therefore] – He – (will) likewise – (..reject..) – the=those – same=people ;

c
[next : what theme ? ; we followed a similar context as after Is. 8:18 :]
                                                                                                   [14 c-f + 15 : the type context is attested]

that=because – [..1x..] – the – death=souls – (will) (..cry out..) – [+to him]           +
d
the=when – the – mighty ones – (will have) (..arrived..) (?) ,                             [<< see line 5]
e
[+but] (he will) – the=not – death=listen [+to them]        +
f
this=when – the – devil [=’or : their adversaries’?] – (..(will make-) [+them] desolate..) (?) ;

15
and – [+he] (will) (..+not..) – deliver – those       +

who – (will be) terrorized – [+by] – (..the demons..) (?) ,                    [15 b : that invitation ?]
b
through=because – [=those] – (..+(having) rejected..) (?)[..] [eden-] life ,
c
will – deserve – [physical-] slavery=death [=’fr.a’] ;

above :
… context isn’t far-fetched , while this theme will be repeated at the end of Hebrews ;
it is just a bit tricky here to find the logical expressions ;

 

part I d                closing                                 also Jacob saved : because of what Christ did

 

next 16-18 :
… Paul returns to the same theme at the start of chapter 1 , closing the circle :

16
for=yet – (..God..) – (..(will) save..) – (those-) (..souls..) ,
b
but=when – he took=(..(will have) mercy..) – (upon the-) seed=house – (of-) (..Jacob..) ;

17
[+because] – [+by means of] – (the-) (..sacrifice / work..) – (of-) (..Christ..) ,
b
[..] all – (of-) the=them – [+he] – (will make) like – brothers – [+to him] ;              +
c
that=as – (the-) mercy – (having) become – and=through – (the-) faithful – chief priest ,
d
(having made) reconciliation – (for-) the – sin [=’this body’] – (of-) the – (..souls..)      +

[..] towards – [..] God ;

next 18 :
… KJV’s “has been tempted” is simply ‘too light’ for the context of this chapter :
it is NOT ABOUT some Vague imaginary sins here ! ;

18
because        +
[=by] – (having) (..overcome..) (peirazó=nikaô) – what – he himself – (has) suffered ,
b
He enabled [+them] – (..to overcome..) – the=what – [+they] (..(will) suffer..) .
