The Superior (Ultimate) Sacrifice

Gentlemen,

We will most likely invest two or three weeks in Hebrews 10 … these questions will help us get started:

  1. The human writer of Hebrews demonstrates in vv. 1-18 that he is a proponent of the teaching maxim: “Spaced repetition is a key to learning.”  Connect various phrases, sentences, and/or verses to earlier references in Hebrews chapters 1 through 9.
  2. You may already be familiar with the quote: “We are not sinners because we sin.  We sin because we are sinners.”  What does this mean?  Do you agree or disagree?  Why?
  3. Define “consciousness of sins” in v. 2.
  4. The O.T. sin sacrifices served not to remove sin, but to remind the people of their sin.  What do you do to remind yourself that you have sin that needs to be dealt with?
  5. Why was blood such a significant part of sacrifices?
  6. Unpack in your own words what it means to … “enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus”  (v. 19)
  7. “draw near with a sincere heart”  (v. 22)
  8. “hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering”  (v. 23)
  9. “consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds”  (v. 24)
  10. How do you define “sinning willfully” (v. 26) in today’s language? … use modern-day examples.

Only half of you have voted in the poll about what to study next.  Please check out the last post, then vote … thanks!

Steve P. is bringing Monday night’s dessert, which will be served at 7 pm … see you then!
