Week 49 Day 1
The book of Hebrews was written by
an unknown author
someone other than Paul
but we still can't get away from those complex sentences
It was written to Jewish Christians
and talks about Old Testament events and people
all the essentials of Israel's faith
the wilderness experience
Hebrews contrasts all these images from the past
with the present reality of Jesus
It replaces the old way of worship
with a new and far better way
Now we can have fellowship with God
through God's son, Jesus, who is
both the great high priest
and the sacrificial lamb
the mediator of the new covenant promised by the prophets
preparing an eternal tabernacle
not made with hands
The old law was good and served us well for a time
but the prophets foretold a new day
a new covenant
and he is Jesus Christ our Lord.
JESUS IS SUPREME
Greater than the angels, than Moses and all the high priests.
Hebrews 1, 2 & 3
1God who in time past spoke to the fathers by the prophets,
2has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has
appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the
worlds; 3Who being the brightness of His glory and the express
image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of
His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down
at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4having become so
much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained
a more excellent name than they.
1We must give the more earnest heed to the things we have
heard, lest we drift away. 2 If the word spoken through angels
proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience
received a just reward, 3how shall we escape if we neglect
so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by
the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him,
4God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders,
with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit?
16 Indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give
aid to the seed of Abraham. 17 In all things He had to be made
like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High
Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the
sins of the people. 18 In that He has suffered, being tempted,
He is able to aid those who are tempted.
1As partakers of the heavenly calling, consider Jesus, 2who
was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was
faithful. 3For this One is counted worthy of more glory than
Moses, as He who built the house has more honor than the
house. 4He who built all things is God.
7The Holy Spirit says: "Today, if you will hear His voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the wilderness 9where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, and saw My works forty years." 12Beware, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13but exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14We have become partakers of Christ if we hold our confidence steadfast to the end.
16For who, having heard, rebelled? Was it not all who came
out of Egypt, led by Moses? 18To whom did he swear they
would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey? 19So we see they could not enter in because of unbelief. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
