Hebrews 13: 20-25 A beautiful Benediction.

Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
(Final Greetings)
I appeal to you, brothers, bear with my word of exhortation, for I have written to you briefly. You should know that our brother Timothy has been released, with whom I shall see you if he comes soon. Greet all your leaders and all the saints. Those who come from Italy send you greetings. Grace be with all of you.

One thought on “Hebrews 13: 20-25 A beautiful Benediction.

  1. Thank you Barry for your comments on this passage. It is such an assurance to know that we have a Saviour who has shed His blood to bring about our eternal salvation, and made us righteous in God’s sight. In reading this passage, the words, “You should know that our brother Timothy has been released ..” jumped out at me. The “brother Timothy” says to me that the writer was a compatriot of Timothy, an equal. If Paul had written this letter, I am thinking that he would have called Timothy “a son”, which is what Paul appears to do in his epistles. I just thought I would pass that thought on, as it had never occurred to me before.
