This is the first of several warning passages in the book of Hebrews: 2:1–4 how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? (v. 3). 3:7–18 do not harden your hearts. . . . Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God (vv. 8–13). 6:4–8 For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened . . . and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance (vv. 4–6). 10:26–31 For if we go on sinning deliberately . . . there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins. . . . How much worse punishment . . . will be deserved . . . ? (vv. 26, 29). 12:25–29 See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape . . . much less will we (v. 25). The main point in vv. 1-4 falls in v. 1: “Therefore it is even more necessary for us to pay attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away.” The warning comes in the μήποτε clause and is substantiated or grounded by the lesser to the greater argument of vv. 2-4 (if this, how much more will this be true). The argument of vv. 2-4 ties closely together with the comparison between Jesus and angels in ch. 1. Jesus’ name is greater than the angels (cf. 1:4), and his word (i.e. the salvation he spoke about) is all the more certain (2:3) than that word confirmed by angels (2:2), particularly since God himself bore witness to the message of Jesus through signs and wonders (v. 4).
