Hebrews 3:1-2

Context
Jesus and Moses

3:1 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, 1  partners in a heavenly calling, take note of Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess, 2  3:2 who is faithful to the one who appointed him, as Moses was also in God’s 3  house. 4 

1 tn Grk “brothers.” See note on the phrase “brothers and sisters” in 2:11.

2 tn Grk “of our confession.”

3 tn Grk “his”; in the translation the referent (God) has been specified for clarity.

4 tc ‡ The reading adopted by the translation follows a few early mss and some versions (Ì13,46vid B vgms co Ambr). The majority of mss (א A C D Ψ 0243 0278 33 1739 1881 Ï lat sy) insert “all” (“in all his house”), apparently in anticipation of Heb 3:5 which quotes directly from Num 12:7. On balance, the omission better explains the rise of ὅλῳ ({olw, “all”) than vice versa. NA27 puts ὅλῳ in brackets, indicating doubts as to its authenticity.
