(6) But Christ as a son over his own house.--Rather, over His house. Throughout this passage (Hebrews 3:2; Hebrews 3:5-6) "His house" must be taken in the sense of the quotation, as the house of God. Whereas Moses was faithful as a servant in this house of God, Christ was faithful as a son set over His Father's house. The antithesis is complete: the one is a servant for witness, the other a Son having a natural right to rule. The concluding words in Hebrews 3:5 have no formal answer here, but the contrast is not the less distinctly expressed. The name Christ (which here occurs for the first time) is in this Epistle never a mere name: it contains implicitly the thought that all that to which Moses bore witness has reached its fulfilment now. Christ has come: God's house, formerly typified by Israel, is now manifested as it really is, containing all "sons" whom God leads to glory (Hebrews 2:10). The terms applied by constant usage to the one nation are thus successively enlarged: the "seed of Abraham" (Hebrews 2:16), "the people" (Hebrews 2:17), the "house of God" (see Hebrews 10:21). . . .
