A New Covenant (PM)
Jesus' high priesthood makes him uniquely suited to be the mediator of a New Covenant. Listen in as we explore what the New Covenant is and what it means for us.
This sermon was preached by David Kleinhans at the evening service.
A Priest Forever In The Order of Melchizedek
In this passage we are introduced to the mysterious Biblical character of Melchizedek. As we seek to understand the author's argument that Jesus' priesthood is superior to all other priesthoods and its implications for us today, we ask three questions in this study:
1. Who is Melchizedek?
2. How is Jesus compared to him?
3. Why do we need a priest in the order of Melchizedek?
Although this warning passage in the book of Hebrews has been the subject of much discussion and debate throughout the history of the Church, it is also a source of tremendous encouragement to the believer. It deals with the question of whether or not a Christian can lose their salvation.
In trying to understand this controversial passage, in this sermon we ask three basic questions of the text:
1. What does the whole Bible say about losing your salvation?
2. Who is the person described in verses 4-6?
3. What does this mean for Christian assurance of salvation?
Jesus Our Great High Priest
In this message we ask the question "Can we be friends with God?" That is, can we have intimate relational connection with the Creator of this universe? Hebrews chapter 4 and 5 teach us that because Jesus Christ is our great high priest who both understands and overcomes our struggles, we can have the confidence of knowing we come in response to a God who has initiated the movement towards reconciliation and relationship with us.
If You Hear His Voice | Part 1
Why don't we listen to God's word even when we believe that we ought to? The author of the book of Hebrews helps us answer that question by holding up the desert-wandering Israel as an example of a people who fail to listen to God's word. In this sermon we explore the root causes that result in us not listening to the voice of God.
The Law of Moses and The Christian
When the book of Hebrews points out that Jesus is better than Moses, one big question that often comes to mind is: What do Christians do with the Mosaic law? In this sermon we explore the relationship between New Testament believers and the Old Testament law of Moses.
Jesus Better Than Moses
For many of the original readers of Hebrews, Moses represented so much more than just a historical figure. If anything, he represented an entire ideology and worldview by which they lived their lives. In this sermon we explore how the writer challenges that notion and we see that in the end equation Jesus ought to sit above and critique every worldview or ideology we might engage with or come across.
