“The Glory of God in Jesus” a Book Study in The Epistle to the Hebrews

Starting next week I will begin teaching a book study through the book of Hebrews at Calvary West on Wednesday Nights from 6:30-8:00. We will not only move through the text of Hebrews, but we will also look at principles for reading, understanding, and applying God’s word (hermeneutics).

I have often been moved to worship as I have studied this wonderful letter. This written sermon is one of the most elegant literary works in the New Testament. The author brilliantly weaves a tapestry of “texts and themes” from the Old Testament to show how Christ is the definitive revelation of God. Again and again he shows us how all things point to the supremacy of Jesus!

Here is the schedule for the course:

January 19th: Introduction: God’s Final Word Spoken in Jesus (1:1-4)
January 26th: The Position of Jesus in Relation to Angels (1:5-2:18)
February 2nd: Focus on Jesus, Warning against Unbelief and Promise of Rest (3:1-4:13)
February 9th: Since We Have Jesus, Let Us Hold Fast (4:14-16)
February 16th: Jesus the Great High Priest, Part 1 (5:1-6:20)
February 23rd: Jesus the Great High Priest, Part 2 (7:1-28)
March 2nd: The Superior Offering of Jesus, Part 1 (8:1-13)
March 9th: The Superior Offering of Jesus, Part 2 (9:1-28)
March 16th: The Superior Offering of Jesus, Part 3 (10:1-18)
March 23rd: Since We Have Jesus, Let Us Draw Near (10:19-25)
March 30th: A Call to Preference and Faith, Part 1 (10:26-39)
April 6th: A Call to Preference and Faith, Part 2 (11:1-40)
April 13th: Conclusion: A Call to Preference and Faith, Part 3 (12:1-13:25)

If you plan on coming I encourage you to begin reading through Hebrews. Also, take some time to read through this Introduction to Hebrews that I have provided below:
