THE BIBLE SAFARI MEETS TODAY, JULY 15, 2018, 9:25 AM—10:15 AM
In Bible Safari, we are continuing our journey through the Book of Hebrews.

The occasion which gave rise to the writing of this book was the danger brought about by the persecution of the early church. Persecution at this point was severe and many of the recipients of this writing were Jewish Christians who, out of great fear, were in danger of abandoning their faith and reverting into Judaism. The writer exhorts them to hold fast to their confession of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

The writer takes the readers back through the whole of the history of the Hebrew people – all the way back to their earliest and most famous ancestors, Abraham and Moses. As they thought very highly of their ancestors, and possessed a strong sense of tradition, this was a powerful argument for the greatness of Jesus – the Messiah toward whom all of their ancestors had been pointing. In all respects, Christ is superior to the prophets, to angels, to Abraham, to Moses, and to Joshua. His covenant is superior; His sacrifice and His promises are superior. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)

If you are not already taking part in Bible Safari, please consider joining us. We meet from 9:25 to 10:15 (between the Masses) every Sunday.
