NT
Hebrews 6:1-2
esv
6 1 Therefore i let us leave j the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance k from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 and of l instruction about washings, 1 m the laying on of hands, n the resurrection of the dead, and o eternal judgment.
The six foundational elements
The following six items make up the foundation of faith in Christ according to the book of Hebrews. These things are the foundation of faith in Christ and must be firmly settled. If you have doubts about any of them, open the Word, seek the Lord and don't sleep until it is clear!
notes
——————— 1. Repentance (from dead works)
To repent is to change the direction of your mind, heart and will. It includes: Acknowledging your sin (Ps 51:1-3) Sensing that you deserve judgment (broken and contrite spirit) (Ps 51:4-5) Confessing your need for cleansing by God (Ps 51:6-12) Committing to following God afresh (Ps 51:13-15)
Repentance

OT
Psalms 51
Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God 51 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, when v Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba . 1 w Have mercy on me, 1 O God , according to your steadfast love; according to your x abundant mercy y blot out my transgressions . 2 z Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity , and a cleanse me from my sin ! 3 b For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me . 4 c Against you , you only, have I sinned and done what is evil d in your sight, e so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment . 5 Behold , f I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me . 6 Behold, you delight in truth in g the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart. 7 Purge me h with hyssop, and I shall be clean; z wash me, and I shall be i whiter than snow . 8 Let me hear joy and gladness; j let the bones k that you have broken rejoice. 9 l Hide your face from my sins , and y blot out all my iniquities . 10 m Create in me a n clean heart, O God, and o renew a right 1 spirit within me . 11 p Cast me not away from your presence, and take not q your Holy Spirit from me . 12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. 13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways , and sinners will r return to you. 14 Deliver me from s bloodguiltiness, O God, O t God of my salvation , and u my tongue will sing aloud of your v righteousness . 15 O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise . 16 w For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are x a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. 18 y Do good to Zion in your good pleasure; z build up the walls of Jerusalem; 19 then will you delight in a right sacrifices, in burnt offerings and b whole burnt offerings; then bulls will be offered on your altar.
——————— 2. Faith (toward God)
Faith is our absolute assurance in the unseen truths of God—starting with his existence and character as the rewarder of those who seek him. Faith is also the necessary means by which we inherit God's gospel promises and confidently draw near to him.
Faith
Hebrews 4:2
2 For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because o they were not united by faith with those who listened. 1
Hebrews 6:11-12
11 And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance c of hope until the end, 12 so that you may not be sluggish, but d imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises .
Hebrews 10:19-23
The Full Assurance of Faith 19 p Therefore, brothers, 1 since we have confidence to enter q the holy places by the blood of Jesus, 20 by r the new and living way that he opened for us through s the curtain, that is, through his flesh, 21 and since we have t a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith , with our hearts u sprinkled clean v from an evil conscience and our bodies w washed with pure water. 23 x Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for y he who promised is faithful.
Hebrews 11:1
By Faith 11 1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of e things not seen .
Hebrews 11:6
6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God m must believe that he exists and m that he rewards those who seek him .
na27
——————— 3. Baptism (instruction about washings/baptism)
Baptism (instruction about washings/baptism) Baptism is outward symbol of faith in Christ for the washing away of our sins, to be facilitated by believers upon new believers. It also describes the reality when Jesus sends his Spirit to unite us to himself, such that we have died with him to sin and been raised to new life in him.
Baptism
Luke 3:3
3 And he went into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming s a baptism of repentance t for the forgiveness of sins .
Matthew 28:18-20
18 And Jesus came and said to them, h “All authority i in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 j Go therefore and k make disciples of l all nations, j baptizing them m in 1 n the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them o to observe all that p I have commanded you. And behold, q I am with you always, to r the end of the age.”
Acts 2:38
38 And Peter said to them, o “Repent and p be baptized every one of you q in the name of Jesus Christ r for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive s the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 22:16
16 And now why do you wait? a Rise and be baptized and b wash away your sins , c calling on his name.’
1 Peter 3:21
21 Baptism , which corresponds to this, u now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but v as an appeal to God for a good conscience, w through the resurrection of Jesus Christ ,
Matthew 3:11
11 b “I baptize you with water c for repentance, but d he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you e with the Holy Spirit and f fire .
Romans 6:3-4
3 Do you not know that all of us o who have been baptized p into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death ? 4 We were q buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as r Christ was raised from the dead by s the glory of the Father, we too might walk in t newness of life.
1 Corinthians 12:13
13 For k in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body — l Jews or Greeks, slaves 1 or free—and m all were made to drink of one Spirit.
Galatians 3:27
27 For as many of you as v were baptized w into Christ have x put on Christ.
Colossians 2:11-12
11 In him also v you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by w putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 x having been buried with him in baptism , in which y you were also raised with him through faith in z the powerful working of God, z who raised him from the dead.

——————— 4. Gifts + Calling (the laying on of hands)
God means for his people to be empowered by his Spirit and equipped with spiritual gifts to live out the callings he has placed on their lives. The church is to take part in this by thoughtfully laying hands on people as its leaders discern how God is gifting and directing them. Those who have thus been recognized are particularly responsible to be diligent to live out such gifts and callings.
Gifts + Calling
Acts 19:4-6
4 And Paul said, y “John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people z to believe in the one who was to come after him, that is, Jesus.” 5 On hearing this, a they were baptized in 1 the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And b when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and c they began speaking in tongues and d prophesying .
Acts 8:14-17
14 Now when w the apostles at Jerusalem heard that x Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John, 15 who came down and prayed for them y that they might receive the Holy Spirit, 16 for z he had not yet a fallen on any of them, but b they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then c they laid their hands on them and d they received the Holy Spirit .
Acts 9:17
17 So c Ananias departed and entered the house. And d laying his hands on him he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus who appeared to you on the road by which you came has sent me so that you may regain your sight and e be filled with the Holy Spirit .”
1 Timothy 5:19-22
19 Do not admit a charge against an elder except d on the evidence of two or three witnesses . 20 As for those who persist in sin, e rebuke them in the presence of all, f so that the rest may stand in fear. 21 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of the elect angels g I charge you to keep these rules without prejudging, h doing nothing from partiality. 22 i Do not be hasty in the j laying on of hands , nor k take part in the sins of others; keep yourself pure.
2 Timothy 1:6-7
6 For this reason I remind you n to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands , 7 for God gave us o a spirit not of fear but p of power and love and self-control.
Acts 6:2-6
2 And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said, “It is not right that we should give up preaching the word of God to serve tables. 3 m Therefore, brothers, 1 pick out from among you seven men n of good repute, o full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we will appoint to this duty. 4 But p we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” 5 And what they said pleased the whole gathering, and they chose Stephen, q a man full of faith and r of the Holy Spirit, and s Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolaus, t a proselyte of Antioch. 6 These they set before the apostles, and u they prayed and v laid their hands on them .
Acts 13:2-3
2 While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, q the Holy Spirit said, r “ Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul s for the work to which I have called them .” 3 Then after fasting and t praying they laid their hands on them and u sent them off .
1 Timothy 4:14
14 u Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you v by prophecy when the council of elders w laid their hands on you .

——————— 5. Resurrection (of the dead)
Jesus was raised on the third day after being crucified. This stands as the basis and perfect hope of the believer's future resurrection at Jesus' return. Our resurrection bodies will be imperishable, glorious, powerful, spiritual (though still physical) and immortal—just like Jesus'.
Resurrection
1 Corinthians 15:1-58
The Resurrection of Christ 15 1 Now I would remind you, brothers, 1 of the gospel g I preached to you, which you received, h in which you stand, 2 and by which i you are being saved, if you j hold fast to the word I preached to you— k unless you believed in vain. 3 For l I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died m for our sins n in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised o on the third day p in accordance with the Scriptures , 5 and that q he appeared to Cephas, then r to the twelve. 6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to s James, then t to all the apostles. 8 Last of all, as to one untimely born, u he appeared also to me. 9 For v I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because w I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, x I worked harder than any of them, y though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. 11 Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed. The Resurrection of the Dead 12 Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, z how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, a then not even Christ has been raised . 14 And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain . 15 We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that b he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and c you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who d have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If in Christ we have hope 1 in this life only, e we are of all people most to be pitied . 20 But in fact f Christ has been raised from the dead, g the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep . 21 For as h by a man came death, i by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For j as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive . 23 But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then k at his coming l those who belong to Christ . 24 Then comes the end, when he delivers m the kingdom to God the Father after destroying n every rule and every authority and power. 25 For he must reign o until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be p destroyed is death. 27 For q “God 1 has put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when it says, “all things are put in subjection,” it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him. 28 When r all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, that s God may be all in all. 29 Otherwise, what do people mean by being baptized on behalf of the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized on their behalf? 30 Why are we t in danger every hour? 31 I protest, brothers, by u my pride in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, v I die every day! 32 What do I gain if, humanly speaking, w I fought with beasts at Ephesus? If the dead are not raised, x “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” 33 y Do not be deceived: z “Bad company ruins good morals.” 1 34 a Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on sinning. For b some have no knowledge of God. c I say this to your shame. The Resurrection Body 35 But someone will ask, d “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body do they come?” 36 You foolish person! e What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. 37 And what you sow is not the body that is to be, but a bare kernel, perhaps of wheat or of some other grain. 38 But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body. 39 For not all flesh is the same, but there is one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish. 40 There are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is of one kind, and the glory of the earthly is of another. 41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory. 42 f So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable . 43 It is sown in dishonor; g it is raised in glory . It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power . 44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body . If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 Thus it is written, h “The first man Adam became a living being”; 1 i the last Adam became a j life-giving spirit. 46 But it is not the spiritual that is first but the natural, and then the spiritual. 47 k The first man was from the earth, l a man of dust; m the second man is from heaven. 48 As was the man of dust, so also are those who are of the dust, and as is the man of heaven, n so also are those who are of heaven. 49 Just o as we have borne the image of the man of dust, p we shall 1 also bear the image of the man of heaven . Mystery and Victory 50 I tell you this, brothers: q flesh and blood r cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51 Behold! I tell you a mystery. s We shall not all sleep, t but we shall all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For u the trumpet will sound, and v the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. 53 For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and w this mortal body must put on immortality . 54 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: x “Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55 y “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and z the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, a who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 b Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in c the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord d your labor is not in vain.

——————— 6. Judgment (eternal judgment)
King Jesus will sit as the Judge deciding the eternal fate of all people of all time—either eternal life in God's kingdom shining like the stars, or eternal shame, destruction and torment away from the loving presence of God. The deciding factor in this judgment will be whether a person has obeyed the gospel call to repent and believe in Jesus.
Judgment
John 5:26-29
26 y For as the Father has life in himself, z so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27 And he a has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man . 28 Do not marvel at this, for v an hour is coming when b all who are in the tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, c those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.
Revelation 20:11-15
Judgment Before the Great White Throne 11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence o earth and sky fled away, and p no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and q books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is r the book of life. And s the dead were judged by what was written in the books, t according to what they had done . 13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, u Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, t according to what they had done. 14 Then u Death and Hades v were thrown into the lake of fire. This is w the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, x he was thrown into the lake of fire .
2 Thessalonians 1:5-10
The Judgment at Christ’s Coming 5 This is f evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be g considered worthy of the kingdom of God , for which you are also suffering— 6 since indeed God considers it h just i to repay with affliction those who afflict you, 7 and to grant j relief to you who are afflicted as well as to us, when k the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven l with his mighty angels 8 m in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those n who do not know God and on those who o do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus . 9 They will suffer the punishment of p eternal destruction , q away from 1 the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might, 10 r when he comes on s that day t to be glorified in his saints, and to be marveled at among all who have believed, because our u testimony to you v was believed.
Daniel 12:2-3
2 And many of those who d sleep in e the dust of the earth shall e awake, f some to everlasting life , and f some to shame and everlasting contempt . 3 g And those who are wise h shall shine like the brightness of the sky above ; 1 and i those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever .
