Jesus Our Great High Priest

Sermon Series: Jesus is Better - Studies in Hebrews

January 26, 2020

Bible Text: Hebrews 4:14-5:10 |

Series:

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.

The Role of the Church in Reconciliation

The history of the church in South Africa is both complex and inconsistent. On the one hand silent acquiescence or worse entrenching and legitimizing racial division and economic inequality, and on the other hand providing the seeds of liberation and equality. Division and exclusion has not just been “out there” in society but has permeated and shaped our own structures and dealings with one another. What role then, if any, does the church play in overcoming injustice and inequality in South Africa today? This seminar explored issues of reconciliation both within the churches own structures as well as the church’s role in the wider society.

Presenter: Dr. Siegried Ngubane, the Director of SIM South Africa. Previously Dr Ngubane has been a lecturer in African Church Planting and Leadership Studies at George Whitefield College and the founding pastor of Khayelitsha Community Church. He holds a Doctorate in Missiology from the University of the Free State.
