HEBREWS

CHAPTER SEQUENCE

Supreme Word – (God’s Word has been spoken in His “Son“)

Upon These Last Days(The “last days” began with the death, resurrection, and the exaltation of Jesus)

The Word of the Son is Superior to Angels – (Hebrews 1:5-2:4 – The “word” spoken in the Son is vastly superior to that given through angels)

The Supremacy of the Son – (Hebrews 1:1-2:4The “word” spoken by God in His Son is His final and complete revelation that takes precedence over all preceding ones)

The Faithful High Priest – (Hebrews 2:5-18Hebrews Chapter 2 presents the priesthood of Jesus – his genuine human nature and necessary death to qualify him to become a faithful high priest)

The Fully Qualified High Priest – (Jesus qualified as our high priest by participating fully in human sufferings, mortality, and death)

The Word of the Son Surpasses the Word given to Moses – (Hebrews 3:1-6 As excellent as Moses was, the word of the Son surpasses even his word)

New Priesthood – New Law – (The new priesthood after the order of Melchizedek in Jesus also means a “change in law” – Hebrews 7:12)

New Covenant Eclipses the Old – (Hebrews 8:1-13Jesus inaugurated the New Covenant, thus rendering the old one obsolete)

TOTICAL STUDIES

Shadow or Substance – (Jesus is the substance that casts the shadows of the Old Testament, not vice versa)

Jesus – A Priest Forever – (Psalm 110:4The priesthood of Jesus is superior to that of Levi or Aaron because it rests on the endless resurrected life of Jesus, a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek)

The Exaltation of Jesus in the Book of Hebrews – (A key theme is the exaltation of the Son because of his faithful obedience unto death)
