Daily Plumer – Hebrews 1:2 – The Mysteries of the Gospel

“Nor can we excuse ourselves from obeying the call of the gospel on the score of any mysteriousness in its revelation. Its mysteries are its glory. They are chiefly mysteries of love, such as that God has spoken unto us by his Son, v. 2. But he has not merely spoken to us, but he has redeemed us, and he saves us by his Son. By the Lord Jesus justice and mercy, truth and righteousness are made harmonious in man’s salvation. By him angels and men are made one family, Eph. 1:10. By him God and man, between whom was utter opposition, are brought together. Let any man embrace in meekness and love these mysteries, without which there is no salvation; and all other things now inscrutable will have lost their power to perplex, even in many of them still remain unsearchable.”

(These hopefully daily remarks come from William Swan Plumer’s 1872 commentary on the epistle to the Hebrews.)
