A Glorious High Throne

I am currently preaching and teaching through the book of Hebrews on Sunday afternoon. I highly recommend that you read Dr. Edgar Andrew’s book on Hebrews called A Glorious High Throne published by Evangelical Press.

The book of Hebrews shows us the superiority of Jesus over all the Old Testament types and shadows. It is my prayer that you will all come away from this study with a new and deeper appreciation for both the Word of God and for the Lord Jesus Christ. Each week as you come to church read the section in Dr. Andrew’s book that we will be looking at. This will help you prepare to hear and receive the Word more powerfully to your soul. My prayer is that this study will bless and impact all of us at Berean. James reminds us, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” This Sunday we will be looking at Hebrews 2:5-9. Focus your attention on two things here:

1. “What is man that thou art mindful of him?” What does this teach us about Ourselves and about Christ?

2. What did the author mean in verse 9 when he said, “…that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man?” Does this verse teach a universal atonement?

God bless you as you read and prepare for Sunday’s message.
