On Sunday nights, we are doing a study on the Epistle to the Hebrews  This study is a verse by verse exhortation of this epistle. Below are the verses  we have studied so far in the Epistle to the Hebrews::

 

 

February 2, 2020   "Our High Priest: The Practical Argument""
Text: Hebrews 7: 26-28
In this message, we discuss the perfection of Jesus Christ as our High Priest compared to the imperfection of Aaron and the Levitical priesthood. Christ in Heaven meets our spiritual needs completely, being sinless, He is able to exercise a perfect ministry to us..
February 9, 2020   "The Better Covenant""
Text: Hebrews 8:1-5
In this message, we discuss the main point of the writer and that is  Jesus Christ is superior to anything we see in the Old Testament. When Christ died and was resurrected He sat down beside the Father making our salvation complete.  There is nothing else that can be done to improve on our salvation as a result of Calvary.
February 16, 2020   "A Better Promise"
Text: Hebrews 8:16-13
In this message, we discuss Jesus Christ as being much greater than any work done by the Old Testament priests. Not only that we have a better covenant with better promises with Jesus Christ as our high priest versus what was offered in the Old Testament economy. In these verses, we discuss the promise of God's grace(v.7-9), the promise of a changed heart (v.10), and finally the promise of forgiveness (v.11-12).
February 23, 2020   "The Superior Sanctuary"
Text: Hebrews 9:1-10
In this message, we show a major contract between the old sanctuary or the Old Testament tabernacle than the Heavenly Sanctuary that Christ ministers in. We discuss in details in what we will enjoy as believers of what we will see when we get to Heaven as citizens of a Heavenly city.
March 1, 2020   "A Greater & More Perfect Tabernacle""
Text: Hebrews 9: 11-15
In this message, we show a great contrast between the deficiencies of the Old Testament tabernacle and the the tabernacle in Heaven. First of all. the tabernacle in Heaven is not made by man but by God, and the Heavenly Tabernacle is able to deal with our sins while the old tabernacle could not. We go in much detail contrasting the temporary blessings from the old sanctuary with the eternal blessings of the new one in Heaven.
March 8, 2020   "Last Will and Testament""
Text: Hebrews 9: 16-28
In this message, we deal with the eternal inheritance that every believer will inherit when we get to Heaven as a result of our relationship with Jesus Christ.  The writer uses the analogy of a will and testament in passing that deceased persons inheritance to the designated heirs.
 
.March 15, 2020   "The Perfect Sacrifice"
Text: Hebrews 10: 1-18
As we enter into Chapter 10, the writer continues his theme that  the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ is superior to the imperfect sacrifices of the Old Testament.. The writer mentions three benefits about the superiority of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ: (1.) takes away our sins (2.) it needs not to be repeated, and (3.) opens our way to God in our prayer life. None of these benefits did the Old Testament Jew enjoy like we do today.
