A Better Covenant … plus bonus material on the Resurrection!


These eight questions will help prepare you for next Monday’s Bible study:

  1. How does Hebrews 8 demonstrate the superiority of the “new covenant” over the “old covenant”?
  2. What is the significance about the statement in v. 1, “… who has taken His seat …”?  Cf., 10:11 and Revelation 3:21.
  3. Why do we need a “mediator”?  (v. 6)
  4. In what ways will this “new covenant” affect the heart?  (v. 10) … be specific.  Cf., Ezekiel 11:19-20; 36:26-27; John 14:16-17; 2 Corinthians 3:2-6.
  5. How have you personally experienced the promise in v. 10?
  6. When did the old sacrificial system cease, or become “obsolete”?  (v. 13)  Cf., Matthew 27:50-51; Mark 15:37-39; Luke 23:44-46.
  7. Would you view sin differently if you were required to still bring animal sacrifices to a priest on an ongoing basis?
  8. How will this “new covenant” help you share with someone who is trying to earn God’s favor?  Cf., John 1:17; Galatians 3:13-29; 1 Timothy 2:5.

As you prepare to remember the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ this weekend, take a look at this handout on Christ’s Death and Resurrection In the Old Testament.”

Monday’s Bible study begins at 7 pm with physical treats to eat, followed by a spiritual feast … see you then!
