  • The Enduring Obligation of Remembrance

    01/06/2021 Duración: 01h12min

    Memorial Day is a time to remember those who've given their lives to help secure America's freedom. This remembrance naturally turns the minds of Christians to Jesus' self-sacrifice for the sake of ultimate liberation. But many have only a superficial understanding of who Jesus is, the mission for which the Father sent Him, and the ultimate outcome He has secured. All of that is bound up in His title, Jesus the Messiah, and this message examines Paul's exhortation to Timothy to continually hold Him in remembrance in this way.

  • Synopsis of Faith

    19/05/2021 Duración: 01h03min

    The writer believed that persevering faith in Jesus was the answer to every challenge confronting his Jewish readers. So far from distancing them from their faithful Israelite forefathers, such perseverance actually bound them together, showing these Hebrews to be true children of Abraham, just as they were. This is the premise behind chapter eleven and its -roll-call of faith,- but the writer saw the need to begin with a brief synopsis of faith and its operation.

  • Exhortation to Enduring Faith

    11/05/2021 Duración: 01h06min

    The writer warned his readers concerning the ever-present danger of falling away from Jesus, yet he had strong confidence that they did indeed belong to Him and would continue with Him until the end. Thus he ended his exhortation by encouraging them to persevere in faith and faithfulness. Toward that end, they needed to consider afresh their journey thus far with their Lord. They had suffered and endured, not because they could do nothing to change it, but because they perceived their circumstances through the lens of God's purpose in joining them to His Messiah. They had endured in the confidence of the reward bound up in Him, and they needed to persevere in that faith.

  • Exhortation to Steadfast Devotion

    21/04/2021 Duración: 01h07min

    Consistent with his approach throughout his letter, the Hebrews writer followed his elaborate examination of Jesus' priesthood with an appropriate series of exhortations. These exhortations address the practical implications of Jesus' priestly work in perfecting a sanctified people for God. This message examines the first three, which focus on intimacy with God in Christ, hope bound by His faithfulness, and devotion to His people.

  • The Triumph of the King-Priest

    16/04/2021 Duración: 01h15min

    The writer brought his extended treatment of Jesus' priesthood to its appropriate climax by summarizing what it has achieved. And he described that achievement in terms of sanctity - by His self-offering and priestly ministration, Jesus has fulfilled His Father's will to renew and reconstitute a family of image-children for His own possession- He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.

  • Living in the Hope of Resurrection

    06/04/2021 Duración: 01h14min

    From the very beginning, the Christian faith was a resurrection movement. That is to say, the Church, as the community of Jesus' followers, has its origin, substance, orientation, mission and destiny in the reality of Jesus' resurrection. Yet for many Christians, resurrection has a minimal place in their thinking, and even less in informing and influencing their practice. This message examines the historical and theological backdrop of Jesus' death and resurrection and why the early Christians believed that His resurrection had changed everything, ushering in a new world of new creation.

  • Behold I Come - Shadow Yielding to Substance in the Messiah

    26/03/2021 Duración: 01h16min

    The writer gave much attention to the superiority of Jesus' priestly ministration over the Levitical counterpart. He recognized it to be superior in its uniqueness and efficacy, but also in the fact that it is the substance of which the Levitical priesthood and ministration - as indeed the covenant they served - were the shadow. Jesus' coming and work weren't something new in God's purposes, but their very destiny. Thus all of the Scriptures testify of Him, and the writer turned to Psalm 40 to show this with respect to His triumph as great High Priest.

  • The Mediator of a New Covenant - The Singular Sacrifice

    09/03/2021 Duración: 01h09min

    Sacrificial offering was fundamental to Israel's covenant relationship with God. Beginning with Abraham, that relationship was ratified, secured and sustained with the -shedding of blood.- So it is with the new covenant in Jesus' blood, and this messages examines this better sacrifice and what it accomplished, inaugurated and secured.

  • The Mediator of a New Covenant - The Blood of the Covenant

    24/02/2021 Duración: 01h07min

    The writer previously mentioned Jesus' role as mediator of the new covenant, but now he began to explain what that entails. And foundational to Jesus' mediation is His sacrificial death - the -blood of the covenant- by which the covenant is ratified, secured and executed.

  • The High Priest of the Promised Good Things

    18/02/2021 Duración: 01h01min

    The writer's intent in summarizing the key aspects of the tabernacle and its ministration was to underscore their preparatory and prophetic role. He especially noted their witness to the enduring alienation between Yahweh and His covenant people- the earthly sanctuary was the Spirit's testimony that the way into God's presence remained undisclosed. That -way- had now been revealed in the Messiah, and it was to Him and His ministration that the writer now turned his attention.

  • Superior Priest, Superior Covenant - The Old Covenant Ministration

    09/02/2021 Duración: 01h10min

    After giving a general description of the original tabernacle and its furnishings, the writer turned his attention to the priestly ministration associated with it. He mentioned the daily service in the outer room, and then the high priest's work in the annual ritual of Yom Kippur. But his purpose in this was to underscore their preparatory and prophetic role- the tabernacle and its ministration were parables pointing to the time of fulfillment in Jesus the Messiah.

  • Superior Priest, Superior Covenant - The Content of Jeremiah's Prophecy

    27/01/2021 Duración: 01h08min

    The Hebrews writer referenced Jeremiah's prophecy in making his case regarding Jesus' superior priesthood and the covenant based on it. This served to highlight two important truths- First, it showed that God intended the Israelite -Sinai- covenant to be transient, for He was promising a new covenant even while the Sinai covenant was still in effect. But secondly, His description of this new covenant showed the nature and scope of its superiority. The new covenant wouldn't simply succeed the Israelite counterpart- in every way, it would transcend it.

  • Superior Priest, Superior Covenant - The Context of Jeremiah's Prophecy

    05/01/2021 Duración: 01h08min

    The goal of the writer's extensive treatment of Jesus' priesthood was to demonstrate the superiority of the covenant based on that priesthood. As the Sinai Covenant -Law of Moses- stood upon the Levitical priesthood, so the New Covenant stands upon Jesus' unique priesthood and priestly ministration -7-11-12-. But the writer also recognized that this new covenant was a matter of prophetic promise, and so this message examines the historical, salvation-historical and prophetic context in which Jeremiah issued his prophecy.
