Continuing our study of Hebrews. We spent three sessions in Chapter six and God’s Word really came to light in our hearts and minds concerning some very difficult passages of Scripture. We move on to Hebrews 7 to discuss what the writer earlier said He had much to say concerning the priesthood of Melchizedek, but the group in which he wrote were dull of hearing or sluggish. The overall message of this Epistle continues to grow, with more and more evidence that Jesus is Better than the Old Covenant, or anything else this World may offer you in place of Jesus Christ. A High Priest by which we draw near to God the Father.
Hebrews 1:1-3 – Jesus is better than everything and everybody.
Hebrews 1:4 – 2:18 – Jesus is better than Angels.
Hebrews 3 – Jesus is better than Moses.
Hebrews 4 – Jesus is better than Joshua.
Hebrews 5:1-10 – Jesus is better Aaronn.
Hebrews 7:1-25 – Jesus is better than Melchizedek.
Why is Jesus better than all of the above? Because He brought perfection! He brings a better hope, by which we may now draw near to God. Jesus saves us to the uttermost, because He always lives to make intercession for us. Therefore, we can come boldly and draw near to God, having access to God the Father through faith in our High Priest Jesus Christ.
Eternally Dedicated God Equipped
