Sermon Series on the Epistle to the Hebrews

(from biblia.com)

(from biblia.com)

This Sunday, November 13, we will be starting a new sermon series based on the Epistle to the Hebrews. Hebrews was written to Jewish converts to Christianity who were most likely living in Rome under persecution. It was written to encourage them to persevere and not go back to the old covenant institutions in the midst of persecution.

The main theme of the letter is that Christ is greater than all: angels, prophets, and old covenant temple, priesthood and ceremonies. Therefore, Christ has fulfilled all Old Testament institutions which were mere foreshadows of his Person and his atoning work on the cross. He is the better and final High Priest, Prophet and King.

This is the English Standard Version’s general outline of the book:

I. Jesus Is Superior to Angelic Beings (1:1–2:18)
A. The supremacy of God’s Son (1:1–14)
B. Warning against neglecting salvation (2:1–4)
C. The founder of salvation (2:5–18)

II. Jesus Is Superior to the Mosaic Law (3:1–10:18)
A. Jesus is greater than Moses (3:1–6)
B. Warning: a rest for the people of God (3:7–4:13)
C. The high priesthood of Jesus (4:14–10:18)

III. Call to Faith and Endurance (10:19–12:29)
A. The full assurance of faith (10:19–39)
B. By faith (11:1–40)
C. Endurance until the kingdom fully comes (12:1–29)

IV. Concluding Exhortations and Remarks (13:1–25)
A. Sacrifices pleasing to God (13:1–19)
B. Benediction (13:20–21)
C. Final greetings (13:22–25)
