Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentHebrews 13:13
- Let us therefore go forth to him (toinun exerxwmeta prov auton).
- Inferential particle (toi, nun), usually post-positive (Luke 20:25; 1 Corinthians 9:26) only N.T. examples. Present middle volitive subjunctive of exerxomai. "Let us keep on going out there to him." If a separation has to come between Judaism and Christianity, let us give up Judaism, and go out to Christ "outside the camp" and take our stand with him there on Golgotha, "bearing his reproach (ton oneidismon autou perontev) as Jesus himself endured the Cross despising the shame (12:2) and as Moses accepted "the reproach of the Messiah" (11:26) in his day. The only decent place for the follower of Christ is beside the Cross of Christ with the reproach and the power (Romans 8:1) in it. This is the great passionate plea of the whole Epistle.
