Preparing for Hebrews - Sunday 4/24

THIS SUNDAY: We will begin a sermon series in the book of Hebrews. This first sermon will be focusing on Hebrews 1:1-2:4, but before we get there, I want to give you a few overview thoughts about the book of Hebrews.


As we go through Hebrews you will see a recurring theme, Christ is better. Throughout, we will see that Christ is better than angels, Moses, and Israel. He is the better high priest, sacrifice, mediator, and more. This theme will be a major part of Sunday morning sermons, focusing on the superiority of Jesus Christ.


Another theme you will see is the continuity of the Old and New Testaments. The New Testament is not a redo of the Old, but it is a continuation of the Old. You will see many references to Old Testament passages throughout the book of Hebrews. Many times these references will help you better understand Jesus, the Gospel, and the New Covenant.


Third, Hebrews has passages sprinkled throughout known as "warning passages". What is the warning? Don't miss Jesus! Pay attention to His message! Do not neglect Him! Do not be deceived by sin! Hold fast! Strive to enter His rest! Do not grow weary, and many more. The warnings are so great because Christ is superior, the Son of God, the only way into the House of God.


I encourage you to try to read through the entire book of Hebrews this week, at least once :)

When we gather together this coming Lord's day we will be looking at Hebrews 1:1–2:4. In this section, you will see all of the above-mentioned themes.


Additional Passages to Read

  • About the Son: Ps 2:7, 2 Samuel 7:14, Deut 32:43, Ps 45:6, Ps 102:25-28, Ps 110:1


Consider (Meditate) on the following as your read and pray:

  • God speaks.

  • He is speaking through His Son.

  • Read through the OT passages quoted in this section (see above) to see more about the Son, but also read some of the verses around each out and look for the "great salvation" that is mentioned in Heb 2:3

  • Notice the warning at the end of the section, 2:1-4. Pray through it.
