) This section is a pause in the author's Christological argument and begins a section of warning that extends through 6:12 (cf. G. Guthrie). The main idea in vv. 11-14 is found in v. 11: it is difficult to explain this doctrine about Christ's high priesthood after the order of Melchizedek because you have become sluggish in hearing . Verses 12-14 give reason ( γὰρ ) for the author's claim that his audience has become sluggish. Their length of time as believers is out of sync with their lack of maturity. They "have need" ( χρείαν ἔχετε ) of two things according to v. 12: someone to teach them and milk (not solid food). vv. 13-14 serve as the basis ( γὰρ ) for the contrast between milk and solid food in v. 12: Those who partake of only milk are inexperienced with the word of righteousness because they are only infants (spiritually speaking). In contrast ( δέ ) to the experience of these infants, the mature (or 'perfect' τελείων) receive solid food. Clearly the author is calling his audience to move on to maturity and chiding them for being spiritual infants. It is for this audience that he lifts up the glorious Christ and offers urgent warnings against apostasy (esp. in ch. 6) while holding out the hopeful promise of God's eternal rest.
