Dr. Jared August, Professor of New Testament at Northeastern Baptist College and a Member at Northshire Baptist Church, preached an overview of the book of Hebrews. The goal was to help us see the main themes in Hebrews and to understand God’s message in Hebrews better as we begin our verse-by-verse study through it.
1. The identity found in Jesus is better than that offered by men or angels (ch. 1–2).
2. The worldview taught by Jesus is better than that taught by Moses (ch. 3).
3. The rest offered by Jesus is better than that offered in the Sabbath (ch. 4).
4. The victory achieved by Jesus is better than that that attained by priests (ch. 5–7).
5. The freedom available in Jesus is better than that available under the Old Covenant (ch. 8–10).
