An Introduction to the Book of Hebrews
On this edition of White Horse Inn, the hosts will begin a new eight-part series on the book of Hebrews. What is the basic message of this epistle and how does it point to Christ as our final prophet, priest, and king? Joining the panel for the first few programs in this series are Dennis Johnson, author of Him We Proclaim, and Zack Keele, co-author of Sacred Bond.
Greater Than Angels
Why did so many first-century Jews come to the conclusion that Jesus was divine? What Old Testament texts did they appeal to? Did they view Jesus as a kind of angelic being or as God in human flesh? On this program the hosts will discuss these questions and more as they continue their exploration of the opening chapters of Hebrews.
Greater Than Moses
What is the difference between the new covenant that Jesus inaugurated and the old covenant established at Mount Sinai? How was this new covenant foreshadowed in the laws of Moses, and how does all of this relate to our understanding of law and gospel? On this edition of the program the hosts will discuss these issues as they unpack chapters three and four of the book of Hebrews.
Christ Our Eternal High Priest
How are does a person become right with God? Throughout the Old Testament, a person was commanded to go before the Levitical priests and offer sacrifices. These sacrifices could never actually take away sin; they needed to be repeated year after year. But now Christ has brought us near to God by becoming for us an eternal high priest forever. The hosts will discuss these issues as they investigate chapters four through seven of the book of Hebrews.
