There were no chapter or verse separations in the original texts of scripture. The presence of these separations cause us to read a chapter or memorize a verse yet have no understanding of the story and the context.
Many bible studies are based around "reading a
chapter" when the next chapter often in the first few verses clarifies
what the previous was about. I have come across places in scripture
where chapter breaks the context and where verses break the sentence.
Many of those places are very popular such as:
A small portion of this text is used to get people to frequent a church
building when the meeting doesn't even involve the "one anothers"
mentioned not just in the context but in oft quoted verse itself. "One
another" means "each and everyone involved." In a typical church
service a few perform in front of many and the many have little to no
interaction with anyone. The modern church service bares almost no
resemblance to the assembling that is being talked about here in
Hebrews. Today there are a few big mouths talking to a multitude of
passive ears. Is an impersonal and non-interactive monologue (sermon) the
same thing as everyone "encouraging one another"? Obviously not. Yet
"forsaking not the assembling" as it is taught has ignored the context
and come to be taught as "You must sit in the audience at church every
week or you are in sin."
Of course "all things" is still "all things" but I find it interesting
that contentment, one of humanity's most elusive features, is the
context in which Paul says "I am able to do all things through Christ
who strengthens me." This is often taken as a license to follow my own
selfish ambition in God's name and chase after "greatness" rather than
God enabling me to be content with wherever He has me right now.
