The recipients of the book of Hebrews were not in a good place spiritually. They were saved but they were spiritual babies. They had become "dull of hearing" and were dangerously vulnerable to their enemies. The Preacher was concerned lest they fall away, recant their faith in Christ and fail to go on to spiritual maturity (5:11-6:8). Having delivered a stern warning about the consequences of falling away, he softens his tone to encourage his brothers and sisters to go on to spiritual maturity.

The book of Hebrews was written to Jewish Christians in 65 A.D. suffering persecution for their faith in Jesus as Messiah.  In this warning section the Preacher confronts their spiritual regression. As a result of drifting away from God’s Word (2:1), they have regressed to a state of spiritual infancy increasingly vulnerable to their Jewish antagonists and the temptation to defect from Christ. The Preacher seeks to shake them out of their spiritual lethargy and to help them press on to spiritual maturity. He warns them that if they continue their drift and defect back into Judaism they will cross a line of no return. In 5:11-14, the Preacher addresses the fact they have become dull of hearing.

Resurrection Sunday could also be called Exaltation Sunday; it was on Resurrection Sunday that Jesus was exalted, crowned King and appointed High Priest (Heb. 1:3-9, 13, 5:5-6). Once appointed High Priest, Jesus entered the Holy of Holies in the Heavenly Tabernacle and offered His blood as the once for all sacrifice for sins. Jesus ascended on Resurrection Sunday in order to complete His work of salvation.
