Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 3:2

_ _ He first notes the feature of resemblance between Moses and Christ, in order to conciliate the Hebrew Christians whom He addressed, and who still entertained a very high opinion of Moses; he afterwards brings forward Christ’s superiority to Moses.

_ _ Who was faithful — The Greek implies also that He still is faithful, namely, as our mediating High Priest, faithful to the trust God has assigned Him (Hebrews 2:17). So Moses in God’s house (Numbers 12:7).

_ _ appointed him — “made Him” HIGH PRIEST; to be supplied from the preceding context. Greek, “made”; so in Hebrews 5:5; 1 Samuel 12:6, Margin; Acts 2:36; so the Greek fathers. Not as Alford, with Ambrose and the Latins, “created Him,” that is, as man, in His incarnation. The likeness of Moses to Messiah was foretold by Moses himself (Deuteronomy 18:15). Other prophets only explained Moses, who was in this respect superior to them; but Christ was like Moses, yet superior.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 3:2

(2) Who was faithful to him that (c) appointed him, (3) as also Moses [was faithful] in all his house.

(2) He confirms his exhortation with two reasons, first of all because Christ Jesus was appointed as such by God: secondly, because he thoroughly executed the offices that his Father commanded him.

(c) Apostle and High Priest. (3) Now he comes to the comparison with Moses, and he makes them like one another other in this, that they were both appointed rulers over God's house, and executed faithfully their office: but he later shows that there is great dissimilarity in the same comparison.
