(8) Though he were a Son.--These words may be connected with what precedes (implying that He was heard for His reverent fear, not because, in the preeminent sense, He was God's Son); but they are still more closely joined with the following sentence, "Though He was a Son, He learnt His obedience by the things which He suffered." "The disposition of obedience Jesus possessed before He suffered, but the proof that this disposition existed must be shown in deed; this progress from the disposition to the deed of obedience is a practical learning of the virtue of obedience" (Lnemann). The suffering recorded in Hebrews 5:7 is regarded as the culmination of His life of suffering.
