Item description for Hebrews: Covenant of Faith: Part 1 (Wisdom of the Word Bible Study) by Jeannie McCullough...
Overview Without a doubt, by all comparisons, throughout all ages - Jesus is superior! This is the overriding, overwhelming message of the writer of Hebrews to the Jewish believers. Jesus has fulfilled all the messianic promises of the Old Testament and now offers an infinitely better way to know God in all His fullness. Although scholars have never definitively decided who actually wrote this intriguing New Testament book, they all acknowledge the clear, powerful message of the writer, who pointed to the wondrous scope of salvation and sanctification made possible by the One who opened heaven's doors for all who trust in Him. The ministry of Jesus is the joyous fulfillment of all the Old Testament components of worship that pointed to His coming. This inspiring 10-week study is Part 1 of a two-volume look at Hebrews that examines the thoughts of one of the most loved books of the New Testament. As you dig into the truth of this poignant Epistle, you will come away with a deeper, fuller understanding of the theology of the New Covenant and discover why Hebrews is a great reminder that the entirety of Scripture culminates decisively in the person and work of Jesus Christ - "the author and finisher of our faith" (Heb. 12:1, KJV).
Publishers Description This Bible study, along with part 2, focuses on the letter of Hebrews--written for Jewish believers who were torn between their new faith and their old religious ways. The writer of Hebrews addresses the temptation to slip back into familiar routines and rituals, settling for second best, and skillfully makes a case that points to Jesus as the true Christ and proves that the new covenant Christ established far outweighs the old faith and rituals. Split into 2 parts, Hebrews challenges readers to embrace faith in Christ--a compassionate high priest--and to understand the importance of faith as a connector between this world and the next. Both Bible studies come in workbook form and provide exercises for students, questions for discussion, memory verses, and practical applications. The Wisdom of the Word Bible Study books are great resources for Sunday School classes, small-groups, independent Bible studies, or anyone interested in deepening his/her understanding of the Bible and the amazing truth found in the Christian faith.Jeannie McCullough founded Wisdom of the Word in 1986 when she was a pastor's wife in Bethany, Oklahoma. It began as a weekly Bible study at a local church and within the first year grew to more than 400 members. Today, Wisdom of the Word continues to thrive in churches and in home groups around the country and has proven to be an effective instrument in uniting believers as well as reaching the unchurched and the lost.
