Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 3:4

_ _ Someone must be the establisher of every house; Moses was not the establisher of the house, but a portion of it (but He who established all things, and therefore the spiritual house in question, is God). Christ, as being instrumentally the Establisher of all things, must be the Establisher of the house, and so greater than Moses.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 3:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 3:4

Now Christ, he that built not only this house, but all things, is God — And so infinitely greater than Moses or any creature.
