    Hebrews 7

    07/05/2017 Duração: 01h02min

    In the first section on the book of Hebrews (this letter written to Jewish Christians) we heard the evidence laid out that confirmed Jesus was superior to all the figureheads of Judaism and the angels • And once we got to 4:14, there was a more significant focus on Jesus not just being greater than or superior to the most prominent pillars of Judaism, but coming as a replacement to the Levitical Priesthood and the Law- which will be prominent through chapter 10 But there are 2 additional themes I want to point out to you that become very prominent where we will pick up today, and should be looked for throughout the rest of this book 1. The first being the things which Jesus and the New Covenant were a fulfillment of, because all of Judaism, including the priesthood, the law, and the temple system, were simply “copies or shadows” of things to come • And what we will see, if we are looking for it, is that Paul will repeatedly explain what they had been given (which is described in 8:5 as copies and shadows), •

    As we finished our last study which started in Hebrews 4:14, we started digging in to what it means that Jesus is the High Priest, which is focal now through chapter 10 • And whether you believe the author is Paul or someone else, right from the get go you could see the passion behind this letter in the way the position and perfect nature of Jesus are spoken of • What has been written here is not just a conversation based on deep study and research, but a matter of his whole heart • Yet we will see that it is not only a matter of the heart, but also a matter of such importance to him that he dug in to search to understand more of Great High Priest and Savior he spoke of – it was both! o And by way of review, we will pick back up in the middle of verse 9; 9b He (Jesus) became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, 10 called by God as High Priest “according to the order of Melchizedek,” 11 of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. He wanted to tell th

    Last week we finished with verses 12-13 telling us that the word of God was sharper than a double edged (sided) sword that cuts straight through what was of the flesh or of the Spirit, and discerns between the thoughts and intent of our hearts, • And that nothing and no one has ever concealed a single thing from the sight of God, • And if it ended there, that would be one of the most disquieting sections of scripture in the entire bible • For although I know we all appear on the surface to be an incredibly wonderful group of people, o the truth is that beneath the surface, and at certain instances, even right on the surface, we have some issues ▪ It’s about this time that Jeanne points at me and hollers “issue” ? ▪ And she’s right, but with 3 fingers pointing back at herself of course But in all seriousness, the bible makes our condition fairly clear, and that’s inside of each one of us resides the potential to both think and do some pretty un-Christ like things • And when we were in our study in 1 John we di

    Hebrews 4


    Last week we went through chapter 3 and I told you that was part 1 of a 2-part message, with the obvious conclusion that starting in chapter 4, we are now in the 2nd part ? • so if you missed that and want to catch up, go to our website and you can get it there In our study in Hebrews we have seen the theme that “Jesus is greater”, as the author (who I believe is Paul) speaks to these Jewish Christians that were considering turning back to Judaism and the law • And because of that, Paul has shown them in chapters 1 & 2 that Jesus is greater than the angels • And in chapter 3 we saw that Jesus was greater than Moses- who represents the law • And today in chapter 4 we will see that Jesus is greater than Joshua • And as a sneak peek, starting in Chapter 5 we will see Jesus is superior to the Levitical priesthood and the sacrificial system And what is so vital for us to see in this study is there are two primary parties mentioned in a back and forth type of ping-pong game here, and both are represent the Jewi

    Jesus is greater. That’s what we have discovered so far in the first 2 chapters in our study • In chapter 1 we heard that Jesus is creator God, who give us life and all created things • In chapter 2 we saw Jesus as the perfect sinless man who provided reconciliation with God and restored the position of dominion over the creation, by coming as sinless man to take it back o Although as we discovered last week, we don’t see the fullness of this yet • Now in chapters 3-4, we see Jesus returning to us another very valuable item, and that is rest! But we have to remember the context, for again, this was written to Israelites who had received Jesus, • therefore, He is using the Jewish foundations (which were shadows and types) to make this point • So we will see theses passages deal with 3 things the Jews held as sacred; 1) Moses and the bringing of the law, 2) Joshua leading them into the promised land, and 3) the Sabbath rest of God after the creation And, because Hebrews was written to Jewish believers in danger

    Hebrews #2 Chapters 2 Please open your bibles to Hebrews 2 Last week we heard God the Father say Jesus was greater than the angels, but it went much further than that For in chapter 1 we also heard God the Father call Jesus God And we found in the text that because Jesus is God, when He purged our sins by going to the cross, He was able to do what no priest or angel could ever do, which was to be seated That’s because what He did on the cross was a final sacrifice, not having to be done ever again And we found Jesus didn’t just pull up a chair to take a rest from the work that He completed, but was summoned to be seated at the right hand of the Father, being that He was Himself God Now the triune nature of God is not fully understood by any human, for the very nature of God is beyond human understanding, But what we do know from the word, is that there is one God in three persons. And that Jesus, being 100% God, is also 100% man And in last week’s study, that revealed Jesus as being greater
