Item description for Hebrews: Covenant of Faith: Part 2 (Wisdom of the Word Bible Study) by Jeannie McCullough...
Overview "It's all wrapped up in Jesus Christ!" That's how the writer of Hebrews might have summed up his message if written to today's readers. All the rituals and traditions of worship, the law, the prophecies - the entirety of what the Old Testament believers held dear - were brought to completion and perfection by the once-for-all sacrifice of God's only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Bible scholars have never been able to agree on who actually wrote this fascinating New Testament book, but they all acknowledge the clear-cut message of the writer, who celebrated the incredible scope of salvation and holiness procured by the One who purchased humanity's redemption on the Cross. His obedience fulfilled all that pointed to His coming throughout the Old Testament. This stirring 10-week study is Part 2 of a two-volume look at Hebrews focusing on the thoughts of one of the most admired books of the New Testament. As you carefully examine the poignant truths of this Epistle, you will develop a greater understanding of the New Covenant and discover again firsthand how all Scriptures culminate 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 1, 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.
