Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Hebrews 13:17-25. What stands out to you in the closing of this letter? What do we learn about the author from this section?
  2. Why does the author command his hearers to “bear” with his writing? What does the word “bear” communicate? What does it say about the listening process?
  3. How might the other commands in this section connect with bearing exhortation?
  4. Consider the benediction in verses 20-21. What is communicated? How does this affect the message of the whole letter? How are you encouraged by this benediction?

Amen. (ESV)
