THE BIBLE SAFARI MEETS TODAY, JUNE 3, 2018, 9:25 AM—10:15 AM
NEXT STOP ON THE BIBLE SAFARI:  HEBREWS,
If you are not already on board, please join us on the Bible Safari as we move along to study the book of Hebrews, which will begin today, Sunday, June 3.  Ask anyone who is already taking part in the Bible Safari and they will tell you how much they are enjoying this study of the Bible.  And they would be happy to have you join us as we continue this valuable learning adventure!

The purpose of the book of Hebrews was to exhort Christians to persevere in the face of persecution. At the time of its writing, some believers were considering turning back to Judaism to escape being persecuted for accepting Christ as their savior. The theme of the book is the doctrine of the person of Christ and his role as mediator between God and humanity.

The epistle opens with an exaltation of Jesus as “the brightness of God’s glory, and the express image of his person”. It continues with the announcement of the superiority of the New Testament Revelation by the Son over Old Testament Revelation by the patriarchs and prophets. In doing so, it reaches back into Old Testament teachings to prove this point – giving us, as students, the opportunity to see how the New Testament is truly the fulfillment of the Old.
