Hebrews 11

Hebrews
Faith (Joshua to the NT): Am I willing to give All?

The writer concludes this great roll call of faith with a number of examples of those who gave freely and gave all to God. Faith does this, it makes us act in unconventional ways. It requires the pragmatic to take a hike and live in a way that we rely completely on God. Do we live by faith or is it foreign to us?

Hebrews 11

Hebrews
Faith (Moses): Will I leave Egypt when called?

Moses, the great lawgiver, is once again used as an illustration. Earlier (chapter 3) he was contrasted with the Faithful Son. Here his life serves as a model for the kind of faith we are called to live. While many episodes of faith could be used in Moses live, the author selects five episodes to demonstrate faith in the midst of an ungodly world. We too are called to faithfulness; but too often we refuse to leave Egypt or eschew its trinkets…

Hebrews 11

Hebrews
Faith (Abraham to Joseph): Do I trust my future to God?

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph or who are called the Patriarchs (Fathers). These men formed the head of the nation of Israel and demonstrated great faith (as well as great weakness). They looked forward to the promises of God and did not really even begin to see the promises of God fulfilled. But they nevertheless believed God, would we do the same?

Hebrews 11

Hebrews
Faith (Abraham): Will I Live Where God Says?

Chapter 11 of Hebrews is often called the Heroes Hall of Faith as the writer uses a series of Old Testament illustrations to define and expand what Biblical Faith looks like. This chapter is rich in depth and it is incredible to think we are on equal footing with some of these giants of the faith. This equality of course only comes because of who our God is and what Jesus has done for us…

Hebrews
Faith (Creation to Noah): Do I believe what God says?

Chapter 11 of Hebrews is often called the Heroes Hall of Faith as the writer uses a series of Old Testament illustrations to define and expand what Biblical Faith looks like. This chapter is rich in depth and it is incredible to think we are on equal footing with some of these giants of the faith.

Hebrews
Warning #3: Don’t Lose Hope

This is the last of the major warning sections in the book of Hebrews. It is a fitting place for this warning after so clearly proclaiming that Jesus is the only way to God. Why stray from Him? Yet we struggle with the same things. We know we must be faithful, but too often life gets in the way and we lose hope…

Hebrews 10

Hebrews
Forgiveness, Part 2

These verses compose the final section of Hebrews main theological argument— Jesus is simply better. The writer here summarizes most of his previous points but also strives to re-emphasize how much better life in Christ is over the law. For us it is a reminder that being a follower of Christ is more than religion. We are called to follow…

Hebrews 9

Hebrews
Forgiveness, Part 1

This next section in the book of Hebrews forms the heart of why Jesus is better than the old covenant—He provides complete and final forgiveness and restoration. The old system had to be repeated constantly. Forgiveness was not guaranteed. Restoration to God was not assured. In Christ though we find complete forgiveness and acceptance by God!

Hebrews 9

Hebrews
Out with the Old, in with the New

As the writer continues to build his case for the superiority of Christ as our High Priest, he goes back to the illustration of the Tabernacle of Moses. This temporary worship center that the following Temples will copy served as the place for Israel’s worship. It was temporary though and tightly regulated. It was a picture of what was permanent in Jesus…

Hebrews 8

Hebrews
A Better Covenant

One of the implications of Jesus, our new go-between, is that a new agreement between God and man was necessary. Such a drastic change occurred at Calvary that the old contract no longer made sense; all of the terms and conditions were different! So God began implementing a new covenant, one that had been spoken about 600 years previously…

Pastor Phil Perry

Hebrews 7

Hebrews
Melchizedekian High Priest

The author continues his discussion on how Jesus is a better priest than Aaron. He brings in an ancient figure from the time of Abraham, some 2000 years before. He begins building the foundation how that Jesus is simply better than the law or any other means of 'self' salvation...

Pastor Greg Olson

Hebrews 6

Hebrews
Our Hope is Sure

The author of Hebrews continues his detour in this passage but now uses positive motivation instead of negative for them to endure to the end and see the promises God has for them in eternity.

Pastor Greg Olson

Hebrews 5-6

Hebrews
Check Your Maturity

The author swerves off topic for dramatic impact to warn his audience about some of their deficiencies and its most dangerous consequence. We need to be ready to give and receive criticism well, and we need to intentionally grow spiritually, because our eternal state depends on it.

Pastor Phil Perry

Hebrews 5

Hebrews
Better than Aaron

The author turns his attention to the heart of the matter— Jesus is better than the Old Testament priests, sacrificial system and law. Jesus is more than a replacement for what is old, He supersedes and surpasses them. He is better than any other religious system; and yet we tend to think it is not enough.

7/24/2011

Pastor Phil Perry

Hebrews
Believer’s Rest

The 4th chapter is a transition between the introduction (Jesus is Better) to the heart of the book (chapters 5-10) describing Jesus as our High Priest. He brings up the concept of Sabbath rest, which is a very important Old Testament teaching, albeit a little foreign to us. We long for rest though, but do we find it in the place were only true rest can be found—In God?
