Sermons from the series: Hebrews

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 13. Throughout our study of this book, we have stressed that the author’s grand exhortation is that we persevere in the faith, that we not turn our backs on Christ, that we not seek some other mediator, that we do not try and find some other way into fellowship with God.  And here at the end of the book he is continuing that...

Hebrews

I would invite you to turn with me in your Bible to Hebrews 13. We are coming to the end of our study of Hebrews. The final chapter of that book is now open before us and I want to remind you that throughout our study of Hebrews we have stressed that the author is clearly focused on calling professing believers in this Hebrew congregation, most of them...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 12.  We are in the middle of the chapter. We will pick up in verse 18.  I want to remind you of the big picture as we approach these final verses of the book of Hebrews.  The logic of Hebrews’ argument has been very straightforward. First of all, throughout the book, especially in...

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 12. In the previous weeks we have looked at Hebrews 11 in some detail and commented that there is a sense in which all of Hebrews 11 is a gigantic illustration of Hebrews 10:39 which had said that we ought to be those who have faith to the persevering of the soul. And so we get this glorious list of Old Testament saints...

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 12. The argument of  Hebrews is fairly straightforward. If we were to review and taking a few cues from those wonderful messages that we heard from Mark Dever, and especially his message on the Book of Hebrews, we could say that chapters 1-10 tell us to stick with the best, stick with the Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t look anywhere else for our fellowship...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me Hebrews 11. We come to the end of the chapter. We will begin in verse 30.  Hear God’s word. 

Hebrews 11:30-40       

“Father, these words are so majestic that we could hardly do justice to them. But You mean them, O Lord, for our souls to strengthen us, to strengthen...

Hebrews

We have been in this chapter for a couple of weeks and looked at verses 1-7 the first time we were together and said that the connection between the end of Hebrews 10 and the whole of Hebrews 11 is that chapter 11 is a gigantic illustration of those who have faith to the persevering of the soul, a phrase we found in verse 39 of chapter 10...

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 11.  We were there last week and we continue on this week looking at the faith of Abraham.  We will look especially at verses 8 through 19.   

Hebrews 11:8-19 

“Now Father, we do thank You for this word, and ask that You would teach us glorious  truth from Your holy word, even as we attend to it. Apply...

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 11.   In Hebrews 11 we begin to have illustrations given of a point that was made back in Hebrews 10:39.  You remember from the last study, as we looked at Hebrews 10:26-3, that the first part of that passage begins with another one of the warnings in the book of Hebrews. The warning against defecting from our allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ...

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 1.  We have been studying the Book of Hebrews for a number of weeks now.  I have lost count and we are drawing near to the close of the book.  We are coming up on Hebrews 11, perhaps the best known section.  In the month of January, the Lord willing, we will be looking four different Wednesday evenings at that glorious passage, the...

Hebrews

Throughout the first 10 chapters of Hebrews, we have said that the theme is Jesus the Great High Priest.  The author of Hebrews is sparing no effort to convince us that Jesus is a superior priest to anything that Israel ever experienced to anything that we ever could experience.  That is the specific thrust of the book to this point.  And when we get to Hebrews 10, the...

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 10.  Last week we focused in Hebrews 9: 15-28 on the finality of Christ’s sacrifice. This week we focus on a related subject — the perfection of Christ’s sacrifice. Last week we emphasized the fact that whereas Old Testament sacrifices repeated themselves, Christ’s sacrifice was once for all. And therein lies one of the fundamental differences between the Old Testament sacrificial system and...

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 9 as we continue our study of this great book.  The last time we were together in this passage, we were looking at the first half of Hebrews 9 and we are going to pick up with the second half.  The first thing I would say is there is a sense in which the argument of the second begins in verse 11. We...

Hebrews

Turn in your Bibles to Hebrews 9.  As we have already seen, a great theme from Hebrews 2 - 10, is Jesus as our Great High Priest, and especially in chapter 8, there has been a stress on Jesus as a superior High Priest to the priests of the Old Testament and as the mediator of a better covenant.  And as that idea of Jesus being a better...

Hebrews

This is all part of the argument which begins back in Hebrews 4:14 and goes all the way through chapter 9, verse 14, that Jesus is a better high priest than we could have possibly had under the Old Covenant ceremonial ritual.  He is superior in every way to that priesthood.  The author of Hebrews is piling up arguments because these Hebrew Christians in this congregation are tugged...

Hebrews

This is a rich passage, and I want to try and be as clear as we possibly can about the chain of argument here, because in my opinion, the change of argument from Hebrews 7:11 down to the end of the chapter in verse 28 can be a bit difficult to follow.  It needs to be followed closely.  It’s all tied together with what the author of Hebrews...

Hebrews

I invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 7.  This is a relatively difficult passage to outline, and so I have given you a relatively complete outline and we’ll try and hit the high points as we go through.  You remember that so far in Hebrews 7, the author of Hebrews has introduced to us the idea that Jesus is a high priest according to the order...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to the book of Hebrews 7.   We’re in Hebrews 7, and I’d like, while you have your thumb at Hebrews 7, to turn back with me for just a moment to Hebrews 5.  Because in Hebrews 5:6, the author of Hebrews quotes for us a passage from the Psalms.  And, in fact, he goes back to...

Hebrews

Turn with me in your Bibles to Hebrews 6.  If I can take your attention back to Hebrews 5 for a few moments and remind you that beginning in Hebrews 5:11, after a section in which the author of Hebrews has thought about the idea of Christ as our High Priest and specifically Christ as a High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek, he’s concluded with that...

Hebrews

Let’s open God’s word again to Hebrews 6.  We opened the can up far enough last week to let out lots of worms.  And I thought it not good to move on past this particular passage without trying to clarify a little bit of what we learned.  So for those of you who have handy-dandy magnifying glasses, what I have done, is I have given you the content...
