2:1 That is why we must take in what we have heard. We must do this so that we do not turn away from God. 2:2 The *angels spoke a message from God that was true. God punished all who did not obey what the *angels said. 2:3 We shall not escape if we neglect this great *salvation that comes from God. It was the *Lord who first told us of this *salvation. The people who heard him have shown us that it is true. 2:4 God also proved the truth of the message. He did this by signs, wonderful acts and many *miracles. As a further proof, he gave gifts of the Holy Spirit as he chose.
