Hebrews: His House

There is a great commercial with NBA star Dikembe Mutombo blocking shots in funny places, like at a toll booth or in the cereal aisle at the supermarket. After each “blocked” shot he says, “Not in my house!” The word house has changed in recent years to mean a place. However, in scripture, a house is a people, not a location.
In fact, the House of Israel spends much of the Bible and history scattered to many places. The book of Hebrews uses this concept to compare Moses and Yeshua. While Moses had an unparalleled relationship to God, Yeshua has supreme authority over all. Rabbi Jake challenges us to accept the preeminence of Yeshua and work out our salvation with fear and trembling so we don’t hear him say to us “Not in my House!”
