A View from the Altar / Infancy (Heb 5)
Skip to content

Infancy (Heb 5)

Infants can’t handle much in the way of food.  Milk is about their limit, though they’re very demanding about getting it on time.  They have to grow and mature before they’re ready for steak and french fries.

The Hebrew writer calls his audience “babes” because they need to be taught certain doctrines of the Scripture.  He lists these in the beginning of chapter 6 as baptism, laying on of hands, resurrection, and eternal judgment.  I won’t analyze the list any further than to say that many Christians cannot give a coherent account of Christian truth concerning any one of these doctrines, let alone all of them.

It’s worth noting that many preachers never speak on any subject other than the Gospel.  I do not subtract anything from the significance of the Gospel by saying this.  It’s a fact, however, that the Bible addresses subjects other than the Gospel, and if we would know the whole counsel of God, we need some familiarity with these other subjects.  It’s a mistake to think that teaching people the Gospel alone will connect them with everything they ought to know about their Lord.
