Hebrews Pt 17: So Much Better (Heb 8:1-9)

Hebrews 8:6 declares, “But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.” In this study of Hebrews 8:1-9, we see even more vividly how the New Covenant — the covenant of grace — is as infinitely better than the Old Covenant of law, as Jesus Himself is. We’ll examine:

  • The SO MUCH BETTER of the High Priestly service of Jesus.
  • The SO MUCH BETTER of Jesus’ more excellent ministry brings in a MUCH BETTER covenant.
  • The fault of the Old Covenant of Law: sinful man, in desperate need of a new and infinitely better covenant.

Hebrews Pt 16: A New High Priest and a New, Better Way

Why do we need a new High Priest and a new Priesthood? What difference does that new High Priest and priesthood really make for us? In this episode we continue our study in Hebrews chapter 7, digging into verses 11-28. We see the many ways that the High Priesthood of Jesus is infinitely superior to the weak, failing, sinful priests under the Law/Old Covenant. What this means is that GOD will not fail with you!



What Pleases God?

(3) But our God is in heaven;
He does whatever He pleases.
— Psalm 115:1-3

Throughout the scripture we clearly see that the almighty, transcendent and holy God “does whatever He pleases”.  But has it ever occurred to you: What pleases God?

The answer may surprise you.  Look at the following verses: (more…)

Hebrews Pt 15: Why We Need a Great High Priest

Why do we need a Great High Priest? Four chapters in Hebrews are dedicated to this important subject. The Bible is full of talk about priests. But what does this have to do with us? Everything! In this podcast:

  • We identify our greatest needs and how they are fully met by Jesus, our Great High Priest.
  • We learn about the significance of Melchizedek, the Priest King and how this one identified as “King of Righteousness” and “King of Peace” points to Jesus our Great High Priest, the Source of real righteousness and peace.
