Even though Jesus was God’s Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered. 9
In this way, God qualified him as a perfect High Priest, and he became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him. 10
And God designated him to be a High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.
A Call to Spiritual Growth
11There is much more we would like to say about this, but it is difficult to explain, especially since you are spiritually dull and don’t seem to listen. 12You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food. 13For someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn’t know how to do what is right. 14Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong.
