Camp is getting closer by the day! I’m getting so excited. Simon Harris will be teaching the book of Hebrews. In just 4 days? He’s giving an overview. Here’s what he says about his class:
Without a doubt, Hebrews is one of the harder books in the New Testament, but it is the depth and complexity found in the letter that also makes it so beautiful. While there may be some unanswerable questions surrounding Hebrews, there are also some wonderful truths that are only revealed within it’s pages. The author of Hebrews calls his letter “the word of exhortation” (Hebrews 13:22), which means it was written to encourage and challenge. If we think of Hebrews as a letter written to Jewish Christians who were tempted to return to the Old Law, we might wonder how it could be relevant to us, but when we realize these discouraged Christians were being exhorted to be diligent, hold fast, rest their hope, look to the promise, and to draw near to the one and only answer – Jesus, then we understand that same message should encourage us. Our study together will focus on that big picture with the goal of encouraging and challenging us to stick with Jesus no matter what! Along the way, we will be reminded of just how Awesome Jesus truly is!
