In this podcast, we take up the question, “So what does the incarnation have to do with me”? This question is answered by taking up the reasons for the incarnation that we discussed last time and then connecting the dots to understand the great many benefits Christ’s incarnation give us for the victorious life. (Part 2 of 2).
Jesus shed His blood for it.
He gave His life for it.
Yet very few Christians know anything about it: It’s the New Covenant.

By Mark VanOuse
Grace does not enable us to “get away with sin”, but enables us to get away from sin.
It’s odd how some think that when we tell Christians that they are under grace that somehow we are enabling people to get away with sin, when in fact the Bible teaches us just the opposite: the grace of God enables us to to get away from sin. …
In this podcast, we study Hebrews chapter 1. We discover:
- God Himself is the start of Hebrews, just like Genesis 1:1
- God is a speaking God and now speaks through His Son, Jesus.
- Jesus is the full and perfect expression of the Father
- The “so much” better of the New Covenant described in Hebrews begins.
- The greatness and excellence of the Son. Here in Hebrews 1 is some of the clearest teaching in all the Bible about divinity of Jesus Christ.
- The point of all this is that Christ is all. Christianity is not about “how to be a Christian” it is about Christ and faith in Christ alone.
This is the first installment in our Hebrews the Glory of the New Covenant series. In this introduction, we cover:
- Hebrews has a lot to do with covenants. What is a covenant? Why would God make a covenant when He has perfect and infinite integrity?
- The Old Covenant: the covenant of law. Based on man’s performance and proves man to be a sinner and a failure.
- The New Covenant: the covenant of grace. Hebrews is chiefly about the New Covenant. It is based on the perfect person and finished work of Jesus Christ.
- How the New Covenant offers “so much more” than the Old Covenant.
- The importance of the context of Hebrews
- The warnings of Hebrews
- Therefore, consider Jesus.
