Lesson 1
Hebrews - Introduction
    Why is Hebrews relevant today?
    What is its central message?
    Join us as we start a new class on a book with a very important
    message for today's Christians.
Lesson 2
Hebrews - Ch 1A
    Does Jesus outrank the angels?
    Speaking to us through the prophets didn't work,
    so God sent us a living Word...a picture of his Message
    The Messiah, Jesus!

    The Hebrews were arguing over whether Jesus was really deity,
    or was he just another angel?
Lesson 3
Hebrews - Ch 1B and 2A  
    Chapter 1B - JESUS definitely outranks the angels
    The status of Jesus vs the angels is settled emphatically.

    Chapter 2A - BEWARE of DRIFT !!
    The Hebrews are in danger of ignoring a message more important
    than the Mosaic Covenant.

Lesson 4
Hebrews - Ch 2B and 3A      
    Chapter 2B - Jesus is "made perfect"! What does that mean??
    Jesus is made for a little while lower than the angels and is made
    perfect. Pretty confusing, until you unpack the writer's Scripture

    Chapter 3A - Jesus is worthy of greater honor than Moses
    That is an explosive statement to make to the Jewish Christians.
    The writer has to be very, very careful as he proves the truth of
    his statement.
Lesson 5
Hebrews - Ch 3B          
    Can we lose our salvation?
    Did Jesus contradict Himself when He said to be saved we
    only need to believe...And then said he who stands firm
    to the end will be saved?
Lesson 6
Hebrews - Ch 4
    Is there more to "God's Rest" than inactivity?
    "God's Rest" is a basic concept throughout Scripture.
    God has been calling us into His rest since the creation...
    So what is His rest, exactly?
Lesson 7
Hebrews - Ch 5 and 6A
    Chapter 5 - High Priest or King?
    Both! Jesus is High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.
    That means He is High Priest and King.

    Chapter 6A - Can you list the elementary teachings?
    Make a list of six or seven basic Christian teachings.
    Then compare it to Heb 6:1-3. Bet the lists don't match!
    Get a new perspective on "dead works" and "various baptisms"

Lesson 8
Hebrews - Ch 6B
    Baptism with the Holy Spirit and with Fire

    Confused about baptism for repentance,
    baptism into Christ,
    baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire?

    You're not alone!!
    Check out this class for Part 2 of our discussion on baptism.

Lesson 9
Hebrews - Ch 7
    Is Melchizedek a Man or Christ or something else entirely?
    God adds an oath to His promises to the Israelites only six times
    in their entire history. And one of those times is when He makes
    Christ a High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.

    So Melchizedek must be important!
    Why don't we know anything about him?

Lesson 10
Hebrews - Ch 8
    Heresy or Truth?
    Is God going to institute a new system of sacrifices after the
    Second Coming of Christ?
    Is there going to be a Temple with Levitical priests while Jesus
    reigns on earth?
    Is there a contradiction between Jesus and the Old Testament

Lesson 11
Hebrews - Ch 9
    Jesus died for us...and for Heaven?
    The Tabernacle in Heaven needed to be purified.
    Men needed to be sanctified.
    Animal sacrifices couldn't do the job, but Jesus could!
Lesson 12
Hebrews - Ch 10 and 11A
    Chapter 10 - God Has Forgotten You Ever Sinned!
    So stop worrying about the past. Don't go back to the old sacrifices.
    They're worthless. In fact, to go back would be a slap in God's face.

    Don't welcome sin back into your life. The Holy Spirit and sin
    cannot dwell comfortably together. One or the other has to go!

    Chapter 11A - Faith isn't Invisible.

    Faith is the visible, tangible embodiment of your hope.
    Faith is not real unless it affects everything you do.
    Faith is something others can see in your life and in your actions.

Lesson 13
Hebrews - Ch 11B
    Who Are Those Guys?
    If you picked the Top Ten People of Faith in the Bible -
    would you pick Enoch, Jephthah and Rahab?
    If you don't even recognize their names, you're not alone!

    Find out what's so special about them in this conclusion of
    Chapter 11 of Hebrews.

Lesson 14
Hebrews - Ch 12 and 13
    Mission Possible!

    You can do it...
    God says so.
    Jesus says so.
    All those folks in Chapter 11 say so.

    Hebrews ends with a picture of the Christian you are called to be.
    No baby any more. But a deepening, growing, maturing Christian.
