Hebrews 5:1-10

Christ our Great High Priest

December 16, 2018 • Paul Mowery • Hebrews 5:1-10

The priesthood for the children of Israel was central to their faith. They understood that they could not go directly to God, but they needed a God ordained representative. For Israel, it required someone from the tribe of Levi. But now we are being reminded by the writer of Hebrews that there are two different priesthoods ordained of God and one is superior to the other. We learn that Jesus is of the line of priests that are superior to anything that Levi had to offer. Join us in Hebrews 5 as we take on the complexity of all of this,  and once we understand, it should cause our hearts to burst forth in thanksgiving.

Superiority of Christ • October 21, 2018 • Paul Mowery

As we begin a new study in the book of Hebrews, we are dealing with Christians that have allowed their priorities to get out of order. Pressure and disappointment were causing some to turn their attention and devotion away from Christ towards other things. The writer of Hebrews begins to lay out how Christ is better than anything that a religious world has to offer. Join us as we receive insight concerning the superiority of Christ.

Expectations and Discipleship • October 28, 2018 • Paul Mowery

Many followers of Christ have had their walk with Christ derailed by painful experiences that have come into their lives. It is easy in those moments to make decisions that are rooted in emotion rather than truth and logic. Frequently those emotions will ultimately take us away from the will of God. Join us as we finish chapter one of Hebrews, to learn how to correct our perspectives.

Why We Drift • November 4, 2018 • Paul Mowery

The great threat to the son or daughter of God is not suddenly finding ourselves in the middle of a moral collapse, but rather finding ourselves slowly drifting from our passion for Christ. The opening verses of Hebrews chapter two are valuable, for they tell us why we drift and how to cure it. Join us in our study as we discover why we are prone to wander from the God who loves us.
