These studies in Hebrews present expository instructions on the two related themes woven throughout the book: Revelation — what God has said to us; and Redemption — what God has done for us. Hebrews brings together God's redemptive purposes which began in the Old Testament and demonstrate how Jesus Christ is God's perfect and only provision for the sins of mankind. The totality of Scripture moves us toward the centrality of Christ and this study seeks to explain: - The superiority of Christ over angels - The inadequacy of the Old Testament law to clear the conscience - Christ's fulfillment of what the sacrificial system only foreshadowed - Jesus as the Great High Priest and King of a better covenant.
Theological questions surround our lives, whether we are conscious of it or not. For some, the questions are as simple as, “Is there a God?” and “How can I be assured He exists?” For others, the considerations may probe deeper, and center upon conversations such as, “What is God’s true nature?” and “How sovereign is God over my life?” Any dialogue or introspective contemplation about God is, by definition, theology, whether the person is a child or a PHD in philosophy. According to author and college professor Kelly Kapic, “Theology is not reserved for those in the academy, it is an aspect of thought and conversation for all who live and breathe, who wrestle and fear, who hope and pray.” In his book, A Little Book for New Theologians, Kelly Kapic provides a clear, straightforward way to distinguish between the academic study of God’s Word and the assimilation of God’s Word into daily life.
