The Meaning of Hebrews 5 Explained

Hebrews 5

[1] For  every  high priest  taken  from among  men  is ordained  for  men  in things pertaining to  God,  that  he may offer  both  gifts  and  sacrifices  for  sins:  [2] Who can  have compassion  on the ignorant,  and  on them that are out of the way;  for  himself  also  is compassed  with infirmity.  [3] And  by reason  he ought,  as  for  the people,  so  also  for  to offer  sins.  [4] And  no  man  taketh  this honour  unto himself,  but  he that is called  of  God,  was Aaron.  [5] So  also  Christ  glorified  not  himself  to be made  an high priest;  but  he that said  unto  him,  Thou  Son,  to day  begotten  [6] As  he saith  also  in  another  place, Thou  art a priest  for  ever  after  the order  of Melchisedec.  [7] Who  in  the days  of his  flesh,  when he had offered up  prayers  and  supplications  with  strong  crying  and  tears  unto  him that was able  to save  him  from  death,  and  was heard  in that  he feared;  [8] Though  a Son,  yet learned he  obedience  by  the things which  he suffered;  [9] And  being made perfect,  he became  the author  of eternal  salvation  unto all  them that obey  him;  [10] Called  of  God  an high priest  after  the order  of Melchisedec.  [11] Of  whom  many things  to say,  and  hard  to be uttered,  seeing  ye are  dull  of hearing.  [12] For  when for  the time  ye ought  teachers,  ye have  need  that one teach  again  be the first  principles  of the oracles  of God;  and  are become such as  have  need  of milk,  and  not  of strong  meat.  [13] For  every one  that useth  milk  is unskilful  in the word  of righteousness:  for  a babe.  [14] But  strong  meat  of full age,  even those who by reason  of use  have  their senses  exercised  to  discern  both  good  and  evil.
