Heb 2:11-13 11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. 13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. All of Christ's Seed or Children is Promised to Spiritually Believe/ Trust in God as He did, and Christ here is speaking as the Mediator of the New Covenant, and as such He speaks of them to Him, the Children ! These children given Him are the sames ones He speaks of having been given Him here Jn 17:2 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. Remember when Jacob said to his brother easu of his Children Gen 33:5 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath graciously given thy servant. Well that is what Christ means in Heb 2:13 ! In both Heb 2:13 and Jn 17:2 the word given is the same greek word didomi : D.to give one to someone as his own,i.as an object of his saving care See with us Jn 6:37,39 37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. Jn 10:29 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. All such given are His Own ! Now back to Heb 2:13, they are called His Children, so as given to Christ they are His Spiritual Offspring, He is their Everlasting Father Isa 9:6 6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. and as they are His Spiritual offspring they must take on the charateristics of their Spiritual Father/progenitor ! The word Trust is the greek word peitho meaning : I.persuade A.to persuade, i.e. to induce one by words to believe The word also involves obedience, as in Trust and Obey, B.to listen to, obey, yield to, comply with Hence this verse of Heb 2:13 is a Promise that those given to Christ in Election, they shall become believers, people of Faith, manifested Children of Abraham Gal 3:7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
