Men's Discipleship Revolution: A Hebrews Overview
Aug 24, 2017

The book of Hebrews in a snapshot: there’s nothing like the real thing. Jesus Christ is better. A knock off looks good, functions ok;  but there’s nothing like the hope of Jesus. Hebrews reads like a sermon. There are over 200 words that show up in this book only that do not appear anywhere else in Scripture.

Then, in 70 AD, Nero swept through Jerusalem and destroyed the temple. Functionally, The book of Hebrews is the final word on the sacrificial system.

The book opens with rhetorical verses:

  • You think the prophets are good? Jesus is better. 
  • You think the angels are good? Jesus is better.
  • Moses? Joshua? Aaron? Jesus is better. 

 In Hebrews 6, there’s a thorny passage. It’s a passage of warning. A warning of falling away to us as believers. But then! “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul.” The ancient Christian symbol wasn’t a cross. It was an anchor. Catacombs had anchors carved into the walls… but anchors in sand are worthless.

 What is your anchor holding on to? 

But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that is to say, is not a part of this creation. He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Placeonce for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! Hebrews 9
