JESUS – OUR ETERNAL HOPE AND SAVIOR (HEBREWS)



 The book of Hebrews states the importance of Jesus Christ as God’s divine Son.  With Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, a much superior covenant between God and man was activated.  Jesus is God the Father’s chosen mediator and redeemer for mankind.  Because of Jesus’ eternal importance, an individual’s faith in or rejection of Him, has eternal consequences.  What have you done with Jesus Christ?

 

Hebrews 1:1  In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,

2  but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.

3  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.

 

2:10  In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the author of their salvation perfect through suffering.

11  Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.

 

2:14  Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil--

15  and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

 

4:12  For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

13  Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

 

5: 7  During the days of Jesus' life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.

8  Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered

9  and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him        

 

7: 23  Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office;

24  but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood.

25  Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

26  Such a high priest meets our need--one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens.


9:11  When Christ came as high priest of the good things that are already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not man-made, that is to say, not a part of this creation.
12  He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.
13  The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean.
14  How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!

 

4: 14  Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.

15  For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet was without sin.

16  Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
