Jesus: Prophet, Priest, King

Hebrews Blog Post

The theme of the priesthood of Jesus is one of the most unique characteristics of the book of Hebrews. It is central to the argument that the author is making, and in many ways a unique contribution to the New Testament, but it is firmly rooted in God's messianic promises of the Old Testament. In fact, according to the scriptures, God's Messiah would fill three important...

The Biblical Theme of the Priest-King

Hebrews Blog Post

This week in our study over the book of Hebrews, we were introduced to a very important Biblical concept; that of the priest-king. While, as Cody rightly explained, Melchizedek is a relatively obscure figure in scripture, the importance of the priest-king is anything but. Of course, we see in Hebrews that Jesus is the ultimate priest-king, and the ultimate expression of ...

Counting on God

Hebrews Blog Post

Have you ever made a promise that you failed to keep? How often do you listen to the concerns of a friend from church and commit to pray for them, only to forget and fail to keep your commitment? If you've been there, fear not, you're not alone. In fact, I suspect I am safe in saying that everyone, as one point or another, has failed in this area. Despite even our best...

Submission to Rulers and Authorities

1ST PETER BLOG POST

This week as we dove back into in our sub-series over 1 Peter, we encountered a difficult, yet aptly timed passage about submission to rulers and authorities. Opinions, when it comes to social and political issues, are like snowflakes...no two are the same.

The Faith and Works Paradox

Hebrews Blog Post

The Christian argument over faith and works is much like the chicken and the egg paradox. Of course we know that for there to be an egg, there must be a mother hen. And yet, a hen cannot exist without hatching from an egg. The question for the ancient Greek philosophers who first pondered the problem is which one comes first. So it is with the argument of faith vs. wor...

The World Needs Jesus

Hebrews Blog Post

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that we are living in a tumultuous time right now. Americans, who were already feeling the frustrations of the coronavirus related restrictions and the related economic pressures, were further inflamed when we all saw the video of a white police officer further restraining an already handcuffed black suspect by kneeling w...

Rest that Remains

Hebrews Blog Post

So what kind of rest are you longing for? Is it physical rest—either sleeping or just sitting down for a few minutes? Is it rest from the emotions and thoughts coursing through your mind and heart? Might it be rest from some difficult circumstances?...

The Necessity of the Church in the Christian Life

Hebrews Blog Post

Unfortunately, in our technological age, for many genuine Christian community is not a priority in their lives. Our culture is becoming less personal. Research indicates that today's youth would prefer social media over socializing. This trend is having a widespread impact and the Church is not immune to it....

Consider Jesus

Hebrews Blog Post

At the core of this idea of "considering" Jesus or "imitating" him is the notion that we begin by looking to him. My friends and I were students of our favorite athletes. We watched them play and attempted to copy their techniques. If a player had a unique stance in the batter's box, we tried to copy it. With the introduction of the adjustable height basket hoops, ever...
