These Hebrew Christians were able to endure the reproach of faith because they kept their eyes on the reward that would come to them for their perseverance. They hoped for a “better possession and a lasting one.” An exposition of Hebrews 10:34.
After describing their suffering in general terms, the author is more specific about what they suffered and how. We also learn about how to handle and view the reproaches and tribulations we face in this life for the gospel. An exposition of Hebrews 10:32-34.
