WHAT DOES HEBREWS 5:8 TRULY MEAN?

 

Hebrews 5:8.

 

Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;”

 

Trinitarian Christians INTERPRET this verse to be saying, “Though he were a Son in eternity past having no beginning” yet learned he obedience by the things he suffered.

But Biblical Unitarians interpret this verse to be saying, “Through he was the miraculously begotten HUMAN Son of God being the word of God made to become a human being in the womb of the Virgin Mary”, yet he learned obedience by the things which he suffered as the HUMAN Son of God.

Now, certainly, all Christians would agree that there is NO SUFFERING up in Heaven. So for certain, this verse of Scripture is NOT talking about God’s Son LEARNING OBEDIENCE in eternity past by the things he SUFFERED up in heaven in eternity past as a pre-existing Son of God.

Therefore, this verse of Scripture is speaking of the DAYS of his FLESH of the Son of God as to when he LEARNED OBEDIENCE by suffering TEMPTATION, mockery, persecution, and being crucified on the cross to BECOME God's eternal Son AFTER the cross.

 

Please read Hebrews 2:18.

 

“For in that he himself has suffered being TEMPTED, he is able to succor them that are tempted.”

 

And we know from James 1:13 that God HIMSELF can NOT be TEMPTED. Therefore, the phrase “Though he were a Son” can not possibly mean an eternal God the Son, the second person of a Godhead Trinity God because that INTERPRETATION would CONTRADICT James 1:13.

 

Please read James 1:13.

 

“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God CAN NOT be TEMPTED with evil, neither tempts he any man:”

 

Well, since Jesus was, indeed, TEMPTED and Almighty God HIMSELF can NOT be TEMPTED then that means that the Son OF God. And Jesus, is NOT THE ONE TRUE and ONLY ALMIGHTY God who was supposedly a so-called God the Son, the second person of a Trinity God in the eternity past having no beginning.

Please read the study “ARE THERE TWO GODS?” for all the Scriptures the prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that the Son of MAN, Jesus was highly exalted AFTER the cross and he was GIVEN a new name that is higher than any other name to become a God UNDER and SUBJECT to Almighty God the Father. Also, please read the study “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD’s ETERNAL SON?”
