Elementary Doctrine of Christ

Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.

Hebrews 6:1

elementary doctrine of Christ
τὸν τῆς ἀρχῆς τοῦ Χριστοῦ λόγον
ton tēs archēs tou Christou logon
the   –   beginning about Christs word

The six fundamentals doctrines of Christ’s teaching:

  1. Repentance from dead works
  2. Faith toward God
  3. Instruction about washings
  4. The laying on of hands
  5. The resurrection of the dead
  6. Eternal Judgment
746 arxḗ – properly, from the beginning (temporal sense), i.e. “the initial(starting) point”; (figuratively) what comes first and therefore is chief(foremost), i.e. has the priority because ahead of the rest (“preeminent”).

5547 Xristós (from 5548 /xríō, “anoint with olive oil”) – properly, “theAnointed One,” the Christ (Hebrew, “Messiah“).

3056 lógos (from 3004 /légō, “speaking to a conclusion”) – a word, being the expression of a thought; a saying. 3056 /lógos (“word”) is preeminently used of Christ (Jn 1:1), expressing the thoughts of the Father through the Spirit.

[3056 (lógos) is a common term (used 330 times in the NT) with regards to a person sharing a message (discourse, “communication-speech”). 3056(lógos) is a broad term meaning “reasoning expressed by words.”]
