THIS WEEK WE'RE IN:
MY DAD IS BETTER THAN YOUR DAD
DIVE PART 2
From the beginning of the book of Hebrews you get a sense that the author wants us as the audience to move on. The beginning four words confirms it Hebrews 1:1 “In the past God” and then he shows the other side seen throughout the book with the word ‘but’ or ‘Today’, Check out 1: 2 “but in these last days” he has spoken to us by his Son”. You can feel the sense straight away that the author is trying to get them to ‘keep going’– it’s time to move on, there is a new thing now!
The author of Hebrews is showing how Jesus is better and more superior to what these Jewish Christians had come from. Remember what we discussed in the Snapshot, the author is encouraging his audience who are Jewish Christians, that are being persecuted and suffering for Christ. They are discouraged and wanting to return to their old way of life. So he systematically shows them the superiority of Christ, it reminds me of a story of when I was young.
