    Christ is better

    This sermon is a rough draft and a work in progress. It was last updated July 28, 2012. There’s a lot of discussion about who authored Hebrews, and I think that’s kind of ironic because the book is about how Jesus is better than all things. I think by leaving that part blank it just highlights more

    Jesus is God and Man

    Hebrews 1:3 August 5, 2012 We started through Hebrews 1 last week, and we covered the first three verses: God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all more

    Jesus's dominion lasts forever

    Hebrews 1:10-2:11 August 19, 2012 The point of Hebrews is to prove that Jesus Christ is greater than everything and that He is the Messiah and God’s Son. He’s going through the Psalms using one after another to show this. And now we come to verse ten: 10And, Thou, Lord, in the more

    Jesus as God-Man

    Hebrews 2:11-18 August 19, 2012 I would summarize what we’ve read so far in four points: • Jesus is better than the prophets, the angels, and all of creation (1:1-14). • Therefore we have to be sure to obey His commands since we know all disobedience will be punished more

    Jesus is greater than Moses

    Hebrews 3:1-6 September 16, 2012 So far in our study we’ve seen that Jesus is far better than everything in creation. The early Hebrews reading this letter would have been tempted to doubt their faith in Christ because of intense persecution (12:3-4). You know, they might begin to wonder more

    A warning against straying

    Hebrews 3:7-14 September 23, 2012 I have a very fast car, and that’s made obvious by the fact that my grass is so green. If you’ll try to figure out how those two go together then you’ll understand how I felt this week as I studied Hebrews 3 and 4. These couple of chapters (more than any of more

    A warning from the Israelites

    Hebrews has shown us that Christ Jesus is greater than all things and the substance of our hope, and it’s given us a warning against unbelief in the example of the Israelites who failed to enter into the Promised Land. Chapter 3 introduced a quote from Psalm 95, and before we begin in Hebrews more

    Jesus is our High Priest

    Hebrews 4:12-16 October 7, 2012 Don’t be like the Israelites who came out of Egypt but in their hearts didn’t want to. 12For the word of God is quick, Let’s keep this in context: the Israelites were in trouble for rejecting God’s command to enter into Canaan. The more

    Jesus our High Priest

    Hebrews 5:1-14 October 14, 2012 Fear to follow the example of the Israelites who disobeyed God in the desert because His word is alive and powerful and dangerously sharp. Everything in creation will be laid bare before Him when it’s time to settle accounts, so cling to Jesus, our “great high more

    Jesus is the end of the law and our living hope!

    Hebrews 6:1-8 October 21, 2012 We’re entering one of the most misused and misunderstood passages of Hebrews, and I want to encourage you right now to check your 21st century American mindset and try to understand what we’re about to read from the mindset of a 1st century Jew. The more

    God’s word is trustworthy

    Hebrews 6:9-20 October 28, 2012 The reprobates who came out of Egypt were plainly seen for what they were when they refused to enter into God’s rest (Heb. 4:2-3), and in the same way, the reprobates today are made plain when they reject Christ and hold Him in a place of scorn. 9But, more

    Jesus (the priest) is promised in the Old Testament

    Hebrews 7:1-16 November 4, 2012 Chapter six tells us that Jesus’s priesthood is after the order of Melchisedec. Now in this seventh chapter we’ll finally get into a few more details about what this means, but it would be good to review the original story beforehand. Abraham’s more

    Hebrews 7:17-28 November 11, 2012 Who was Melchisedec? He was the King and Priest who met Abraham after the slaughter of the five kings. (:1) What did he do? He blessed Abraham and received a tithe from him. (:1-2) Why is he important? He points us to Christ (:3) who was the Priest more

    Jesus Christ is the mediator of a much better covenant which is established on better promises!

    Hebrews 8:1-13 November 25, 2012 This chapter can be broken into two parts: verses 1-5 show us that Christ is the true High Priest, and verses 6-13 show us how His ministry is a true ministry. These two facts nullify the priests and their ministry since we now have something far better. Now more

    The priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God, but Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle.

    Hebrews 9:1-12 December 2, 2012 Chapter eight showed us that Jesus is the mediator of a better covenant based on better promises (8:6). Since there’s a new covenant, the old one is passing away (8:13). Chapter nine will show us that since the old covenant is gone, then so are its more

    Jesus is the perfect sacrifice that abolishes sin and removes all fear of wrath!

    Hebrews 9:13-28 December 9, 2012 Jesus is the mediator of a better covenant based on better promises (8:6), and since there’s a new covenant, the old one is gone (8:13). If the old one is gone, then so are its ordinances (9:10), and the only thing we have left is Christ! This second half more

    Since Jesus has made a way into the Holiest by His blood and through His life, we enter in boldly and with confidence!

    Hebrews 10:15-23 December 30, 2012 Jesus removes every trace of guilt so that we have a clear conscience before God. 15Whereof [“Moreover”] the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: In the Old Testament everything was established by the word of two or three witnesses (Dt. more

    Don’t abandon Christ; He causes the wicked to perish, but He has mercy on His people!

    Hebrews 10:24-31 January 6, 2013 What would you say to a brother or sister who began doubting Christ or doubting the righteousness that comes by faith? That’s the main question answered in Hebrews and even here in chapter ten. Since we have such a great High Priest let us draw near to God more

    Don’t give up on your profession—the righteous shall live by his faith!

    Hebrews 10:31-39 January 13, 2013 In our last study we were encouraged to hang on to our profession of Christ because we know God will consume the wicked and will have mercy on the righteous: 32But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great more

    Faith proves God’s work in us and causes us to obey and persevere.

    Hebrews 11:1-7 January 20, 2013 To really understand Hebrews 11 we have to keep it within the context of the whole book and especially what we see in chapter 10. Who is he writing to? He’s writing to Christians who were afraid and thinking about giving up. And so the whole book is a more

    Hebrews 11:8-19 January 27, 2013 The context of the whole book focuses on Christ as the fulfillment of all the Old Testament types and shadows.

    Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph all held fast their profession until the very end.

    The theme of Hebrews is perseverance. If that seems redundant in our study just consider how often it comes up in the rest of Scripture: Romans 13:12; I Corinthians 9:24; Philippians 3:14; II Timothy 4:7; Luke 9:62; Romans 12:12; Galatians 6:9; Matthew 24:13; II Thessalonians 4:7-8; Revelation more

    More on the Hall of God’s Handiwork!

    We come to this second half of Hebrews 11 and I think it’s important that we once again get our bearings to make sure we’re interpreting it correctly. The point of Hebrews is the same point as the rest of Scripture: it glorifies Christ. The people listening were Jews who had converted to more

    We wait patiently for Christ who is victorious, faithful and worthy.

    The main theme we’ve seen is that Christ Jesus is greater than all things. This letter is written with that theme in mind because the original hearers have considered leaving; they’re being persecuted and they don’t like that. They’re asking, “Have we left Moses and more

    Are you suffering? Everything is right on schedule as God disciplines and scourges every son He loves!

    I want to start off today’s study with a question from a Psalm: LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph? 4How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves? (Ps. 94:3). This problem the Hebrews were facing more

    We must be careful to finish the race set before us because we know that God is a consuming fire who will punish the wicked!

    We continue in Hebrews 12 where the author encourages his listeners to hang on to their profession and keep looking to Jesus. God scourges the ones He loves to bring about the peaceable fruit of righteousness in time: 12Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; more

    Running our race means brotherly love, entertaining strangers, and remembering our brothers and sisters suffering persecution.

    This all goes back to the race set before us in 12:1. How do we run our race? What does that mean besides not giving up? Let brotherly love continue. First, let’s talk about the meaning of brotherly love: the Greek word is φιλαδελφία more
