08 Hebrews 8 – Old and Obsolete vs. New and Improved
What if we were to ask the writer of Hebrews, “What’s the big deal here?” “What’s
the headline?” The answer appears in Heb 8: 1-2. “ Now the point (main
idea, lit. in Greek kephale, the
“head”) in what we are saying is this: we have such a high priest, one ...

07 Hebrews 7 – Jesus’ Greater Priesthood – So Draw Near!
Hebrews 6 closed by noting that Jesus has become “a high priest forever according
to the order of Melchizedek” (Heb 6: 19-20) . That last phrase returned the discussion to what had
been noted in Heb 5:6, 10-11. A parenthesis followed, challenging the reader...

Our understanding of truth increases as we mature in our willingness to
hear, believe, and obey. Believers in Christ, both in the first century and
today, must grow up in order to go up. As long as the readers of Hebrews
remained sluggish, dull, complacent,...

05 Hebrews 5 – His Greater High Priesthood – So Learn and Grow!
The high priesthood of Jesus Christ is a prominent, recurring theme in
Hebrews. To fulfill that role, he who is superior to angels (Heb 1) became for
a little while lower than angels (Heb 2). He supersedes Moses because he is our
apostle and high priest (He...

04 Hebrews 4 – His Eternal Sabbath Rest – Don’t Miss It!
Thankfully, the next rest stop is not anyone's guess! God described it here in Hebrews 4. In fact, the next rest stop is out of this world! God had said regarding the unfaithful Hebrews who lived in Moses’ day,
“They shall not enter my rest” (Heb 3:11, citi...

03 Hebrews 3 – More than Moses – So Be Faithful!
“Consider Jesus” (Heb 3:1) could serve as a title for the entire book of
Hebrews. The more clearly one understands His nature, His majesty, and His
ministry, the more diligent and faithful one will be in following and imitating
Him. So far we have seen His ...

02 Hebrews 2 – A Man Like Us – So Our High Priest
Because of Jesus’ supremacy over angels, we must give greater heed to His
salvation. In OT times, if one rejected God’s message through angels (the Law
of Moses), he paid a costly price for disobedience, often death. The writer of
Hebrews asks how much wors...
