    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:14

    (porque participantes del Cristo somos hechos, si empero retuviremos firme hasta el fin el principio de su sustancia.)

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 3:14

    Verse 14. For we are made partakers of
    Christ] Having believed in Christ as the promised Messiah, and embraced the whole Christian system, they were consequently made partakers of all its benefits in this life, and entitled to the fulfillment of all its exceeding great and precious promises relative to the glories of the eternal world. The former they actually possessed, the latter they could have only in case of their perseverance; therefore the apostle says, If we hold fast the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end, i.e. of our life. For our participation of glory depends on our continuing steadfast in the faith, to the end of our Christian race.

    The word upostasiv, which we here translate confidence, from upo, under, and isthmi, to place or stand, signifies properly a basis or foundation; that on which something else is builded, and by which it is supported. Their faith in Christ Jesus was this hypostasis or foundation; on that all their peace, comfort, and salvation were builded. If this were not held fast to the end, Christ, in his saving influences, could not be held fast; and no Christ, no heaven. He who has Christ in him, has the well-founded hope of glory; and he who is found in the great day with Christ in his heart, will have an abundant entrance into eternal glory.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. For we are made partakers of Christ , etc..] Being loved by him, given to him, and chosen in him before the foundation of the world; and so participate of all spiritual blessings in him; for this respects something past, and may be rendered, we have been made. The phrase is expressive of union to Christ, which is not by faith on man's part, and by the Spirit on Christ's part, but by his everlasting love, taking his people into an oneness with himself; thereby becoming their head, surety, and representative, which is the ground and foundation of all the blessings of grace being imparted to them: hence arises communion; as this is a conjugal union, there is communion of names, of persons, of goods, of honour and dignity, and of everlasting glory; as it is a federal or representative union, hence a non-imputation of sin, justification, and freedom from condemnation; and as it is an union of head and members; hence a communication of life, and the security of it, and of all grace and strength; hence holiness, fruitfulness, and perseverance, and everlasting happiness both of soul and body: if we hold fast the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end ; by confidence is meant faith, which is an hypostasis, or subsistence, which is the word here used; and is so called, because it gives a kind of subsistence, substance, or being, to things it is concerned with, ( Hebrews 11:1) and because it is a great support to believers, under their various exercises; and is that by which they have an open, spiritual, and comfortable subsistence, and abiding in Christ: the beginning of it, which is to be held fast, is either Christ himself, who is the arch , the beginning, the author, and finisher of faith; and so this shows from whom, and in what way, this grace is distributed; and is expressive of communion with Christ, and is an evidence of the participation of him: or else the Gospel, which is the means of implanting faith, and directs to that which is the ground and foundation of it; and this is to be held fast, and never to be departed from: or else the grace of faith itself, which is a grace but begun, not yet finished, but shall continue, and is to be held fast, and constantly exercised; and perseverance in believing on Christ is an evidence of union to him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-19 - The
    saints' privilege is, they are made partakers of Christ, that is of the Spirit, the nature, graces, righteousness, and life of Christ they are interested in all Christ is, in all he has done, or will do The same spirit with which Christians set out in the ways of God, the should maintain unto the end. Perseverance in faith is the bes evidence of the sincerity of our faith. Hearing the word often is means of salvation, yet, if not hearkened to, it will expose more to the Divine wrath. The happiness of being partakers of Christ and his complete salvation, and the fear of God's wrath and eternal misery should stir us up to persevere in the life of obedient faith. Let u beware of trusting to outward privileges or professions, and pray to be numbered with the true believers who enter heaven, when all others fai because of unbelief. As our obedience follows according to the power of our faith, so our sins and want of care are according to the prevailin of unbelief in us __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    14. We are made partakers of
    Christ (metocoi gar tou Cristou gegonamen). Rend. we are become fellows with Christ. For fellows see Luke v. 7; Heb. i. 9. It marks even a closer relation than "brethren." See Luke xxii. 30; Rom. viii. 17; Apoc. iii. 21.

    Beginning of our confidence (thn archn thv upostasewv). The believing confidence with which we began our Christian life. For uJpostasiv confidence see on ch. i. 3. The Greek fathers render substance; that in virtue of which we are believers.

    Unto the end (mecri telouv). Better, the consummation. It is more than mere termination. It is the point into which the whole life of faith finally gathers itself up. See Rom. vi. 21; 2 Cor. xi. 15; Philip. iii. 19; Heb. vi. 8; 1 Pet. i. 9.
