Today you should read: Hebrews 1

I am so excited to start this new book with you all. Hebrews is one of my favorite books of the Bible.  Have you ever wondered why the old testament is so important and how it connects with the new?
Hebrews helps us connect many of those dots. In fact, the very beginning of this books refers to the old testament and connects it with the new. Another important aspect of this book is that it gives us several different angles of Jesus and how he is connected to and foreshadowed in the old testament. We see, in today’s chapter, that Jesus is compared to the two main messengers of the old testament, angels and prophets. He is said to be greater than them both in glory and importance. As we read through Hebrews together I want to leave us with 2 thoughts, one from our reading today and one to keep with you throughout this book:

For today: God has spoken to us through Jesus, listen.

Jesus is called the “Word” for a reason. He is God’s final word and authority. He is, to us, God explained, God with us. He creates, sustains, teaches, guides and leads us. We can know Him, trust Him and have a relationship with Him, the God of the universe. So, today, listen to and for His voice and His leading.

For this book: Jesus is everything to us

As you will see, Jesus is compared to and is a type of many different people and things. Melchizedek, angels, prophets, Moses, Rest, and the High priest just to name a few. What we will find out in Hebrews
is that everything points to and is about Jesus. Enjoy.

  1. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭1:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭1:14‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    Great way to start the week: A double shot of Byrd (Saturday & Monday commentaries). Thanks Robbie!
