Morning Sermon: Hebrews 1 (audio)




Also, here's the original version of the song from special music:



Hebrews 1

Context:

    Authorship Unknown. Or Barnabas. Or Luke. (I like David Allen’s Luke theory)

    Date: Pre-70 AD (Destruction of Temple); probably Neronian Era

    Canonical Context: Directed to Israelites/Jews, probably Jewish Christians due to its faith-affirming nature; probable during First Jewish Revolt 66-70 AD, as it has become clear Rome will win it and urging them to follow Jesus without losing heart due to the destruction of Judaism’s central concept of sacrifice and Temple


Overview: 

    Opening of Message/sermon (Hebrews reads like a set of transcribed messages)

    Superiority of Jesus in all things, is a primer for the whole book;


Reflection:

    Phrased like AMOS 3:8 (YHWH has spoken, who can but prophesy)
The Lord God has spoken, how can we not act in obedience


“If God said and you will not do it, then you either don’t believe He really said…or you don’t believe He’s really God.”


Expectation:

  1. Purification from sins (v. 3)
  2. Sufficiency of what has been said (v. 1-2)—quit adding “God told me/I felt Jesus say….” to your statements.
  3. Response! (v. 1-4, and the WHOLE OLD TESTAMENT!)


Evening Message: Some Thoughts from Philemon (audio)
