“Better: A Study of the Christian Life in Hebrews — I'd rather have Jesus than…angels”

Hebrews 1:1-4

The Reverend Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Hebrews chapter 1. We’re going to be looking at verses 1 to 4 this morning, but after our reading...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to the book of Hebrews.  We’re beginning a new study tonight and I have given you an outline and I’m not sure whether I will get through that outline tonight.  But I think I’ve decided that we will just take it as it comes.  We’ll get as far as we can in these studies and then...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me again to Hebrews 1.  Let me just remind you of a few things from last week. 

Remember that we said that Hebrews is about persevering in the faith.  That is the challenge this congregation was facing.  They had made a profession of faith in Christ.  They were walking in Christ.  There were committed professing...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me again to the Book of Hebrews as we continue that study.  We have said already that the Book of Hebrews is about persevering in the faith.  And that it reminds us of the various challenges to Christian faith and it points us to the one sure foundation and source of power for vital Christianity and that...

Hebrews

Sermon on Apr 8, 1998

Hebrews 1:4-14

Let me recap some of the things we have said about this book.  We have said that this book is about persevering in the faith, and that this particular congregation of Christians were Jewish Christians in their background.   They were very much familiar with the approach to religion of Judaism and they were, perhaps, being influenced by the Essene community, that was near the Dead Sea .  This...

“Better — More Excellent Than Angels”

Hebrews 1:4-14

The Reverend Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Hebrews chapter 1 as we continue to make our way through this great sermon, this great letter, together. This morning, we're going to be looking at verses 4...

Hebrews

The Essenes had messianic expectations too.  They believed there was a messiah coming.  But, in fact, they believed it was more complex than just one messiah.  They believed there were going to be thee human figures associated with the messianic age.  First there was going to be a great prophet, perhaps the one mentioned in Malachi.  Then there was going to be a kingly messiah; then there was...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 1 and we will see if we can make some headway in this chapter tonight.  We have said all along that the congregation to whom the author of Hebrews is writing had complete confidence in the authority of the Old Testament.  But apparently, they had run across some people who were interpreting the...

Chapter 2

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Hebrews, chapter 2.   As you look through Hebrews, chapter 1 and you see the arguments laid out there the focus is on the superiority of Christ, Christ is given various titles in the first few verses of the first chapter of Hebrews.  He is called the heir of all things. He’s called the One through...

“Better — Neglecting So Great a Salvation”

Hebrews 2:1-4

The Reverend Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Hebrews chapter 2. We’re going to be looking at verses 1 to 4 this morning as we continue our way through this great letter together.

Last week and the week before we...

Hebrews

The last time we were together we looked at Hebrews, chapter 2, the first four verses where the application of the first chapter is drawn.  You remember that the first chapter is spent giving us arguments for Jesus’ superiority over the angels.  And we have surmised at least a couple of reasons for that.  It may well be that these people had a view that Jesus was one...

“By the Grace of God, He Tasted Death”

Hebrews 2:5-9

The Reverend Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Hebrews chapter 2. We’re going to be looking at verses 5 to 9 this morning as we continue this series in the letter or the sermon of the Hebrews. We've...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 2.  As we have studied the book of Hebrews together, I find it almost ironic that we come to this passage tonight in light of some of the announcements that we had in our prayer time.  As we have studied this together, we noted in the first two verses of the book, Christ’s...

Adoption

Hebrews 2:10 What's in a Name?

Turn with me now, if you would, to the book of Hebrews and the second chapter. We have been considering together the doctrine of adoption, and we've looked at some general aspects of that marvelous truth as we found it in some passages, in particular, in Galatians and Ephesians. Last week we drew particular attention to the truth that in our adoption...

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Hebrews chapter 2. We’re going to be looking at verses 10 to 13 together this morning as we continue this series called, “Better.” We took the title of the series, “Better,” from the book of...

Hebrews

Sermon on Jun 10, 1998

Hebrews 2:14-18

If you have your Bibles, please turn with me to Hebrews, chapter 2.   Now, we have been slowly working through Hebrews, chapter 2.  We come tonight to Hebrews, chapter 2, verses 14 through 18.  And if you will, why don’t we look back over briefly what we have done so far.  So far in the book of Hebrews, we have seen Christ’s superiority asserted.  We have...

“Like His Brethren in All Things”

Hebrews 2:14-18

The Reverend Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Hebrews chapter 2. We’re going to be looking at verses 14 to 18 together today. There is a haunting phrase in Andrew Peterson's wrenchingly beautiful song, “You’ll Find Your Way.” Fathers, if...

Chapter 3

Hebrews

Perhaps as you turn to Hebrews 3, you might want to glance at the first two chapters again and remind yourself where we have been, what we have said so far.  This congregation was apparently being pressured or at least tempted by the teaching of the Essene community, a community of Jewish believers who had certain beliefs that were similar to the early Christians but they did not...
