This coming weekend at Eastbrook Church we began a new preaching series entitled “The Final Word: Knowing Christ through Hebrews.” Over the course of the next several months we will steadily walk through the entire book of Hebrews, drawing our attention to Jesus Christ and learning about the life of faith. The title of the series is drawn from the first verses of the book:
In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. (Hebrews 1:1-4)
The epistle known as Hebrews is one of the most unique books in the New Testament. Structured more like an extended sermon than a letter, Hebrews brings us into rich understanding of who Jesus is and what He has done in light of the Hebrew covenants and sacrificial system. As we walk through this book we want to know Christ more as our understanding grows and our faith is enriched that we might “run with perseverance the race marked out for us” (12:1).
Join us for this series each weekend at “Eastbrook at Home” and consider joining a virtual discussion of the sermon each Sunday at 11 AM.
