Study of the Book of Hebrews in the Bible.

Teachings

Hebrews 2:5-10 | Having exhorted the readers to “pay much closer attention” to their Great Salvation, and to watch out for spiritual drift, the author of Hebrews continues to build. Now he describes HOW God has worked such a Great Salvation. In doing so we continue to learn about Jesus’ complete authority as well as … [ read more ] "Authority & Already-Not-Yet"

This week sees Pastor Jason pick back up on our study through the Bible book Hebrews, in chapter 5:1-10. Though the people, history, and traditions of ancient Israel may seem so far removed from our lives, They are a key part in God’s Great Rescue Plan, which every one of us ought to sit up … [ read more ] "Our Example, Our Source"

When read by itself, Hebrews 6:1-3 seems to contradict much of what you’d hear from modern preachers. What could it mean to “leave the elementary doctrine of Christ”? This is part of what we explore in this week’s message as we continue to explore maturity in the faith.

As the author of Hebrews continues to push into the idea of “not neglecting a great salvation” and growing into maturity, the passage for this weeks seems to take a tricky turn. Join us as we dig deep into issues around salvation, kingdom fruit and eternal security.

After some intense words, the author of Hebrews speaks more directly to the recipients of the letter who are believing in Jesus. He calls them “beloved” and speaks of good things that he sees for them. This week, we glean some truths from this short passage that can help concrete us in faith and community.

As the Advent season kicks off, our study through the book of Hebrews takes an appropriate and timely focus on HOPE. So much more than a warm-and-fuzzy idea, so much more than a self-help-strategy, we need a hope that provides a “sure and steadfast” refuge. This hope exists in Jesus!

The chapter of Hebrews that many have been waiting for: Melchizedek. Wait, who? Yeah, the author builds a fascinating case for the redemptive work of God through a mysterious, obscure Old Testament character, continuing his case for Jesus’ great(er)ness.

Finding JOY (this week’s Advent theme) in one’s work can be difficult for a perfectionist, because the work is never “quite right” and/or never “quite finished.” This is one reason why Jesus’ Perfect Priesthood and His service as our Perfect Priest should resound in abiding JOY for believers.

Mediator is one of the most important functional roles that Jesus serves for the believer. All across the Bible we see beautiful pictures of effective mediation and/or hear deep cries for the need of such a service. This week we explore a key Old Testament text in Exodus 33 in order to better understand the … [ read more ] "Dynamics of Cherishing Our Great Mediator"

A treat for this sermon, local NAMB church planter Deholo Nali takes us through the next section of Hebrews. Jesus, our Hero, unlocks “eternal inheritance”, “freedom”, and “godliness”. All of these are integral parts of the wonderful Good News that Jesus offers to each person.
