Welcome to our study of Hebrews!

Dear Ones,

Our first week for our Fall Bible study is finally here! I’m excited to be meeting with you to study the remarkable book of Hebrews, and I hope you are too.

You received the notification for this post on our new-and-improved Women of Purpose blog because you have registered for the study of the book of Hebrews. Each week Kathy and I will be writing posts about the studies we are leading with the aim of capturing the gist of our lessons and discussions for those who may have missed class, and for those who wish to reflect further on what we studied together. We may also, on occasion, share articles or resources which relate to our respective studies. Our goal is always the enrichment of our understanding the Scriptures: primarily through the study of the Bible itself, and then secondarily through reliable commentary and resources.

If you haven’t already gotten your study guide, they are available in the office. (They are $8 each) If you can’t stop by to pick one up before we meet, I will have them in class on Wednesday. This week (9/22) we will be going over the first lesson, which covers the first chapter of Hebrews. Our focus will be on the ways in which God has spoken to us, and what we learn about the divinity and supremacy of Christ. We will then dig deeper into the Old Testament passages quoted by the author of Hebrews to see the light they shed on Jesus.

Please come to class with your study guide (if you already have it), your Bible, and, if you are a note-taker, a notebook and pen.

It is my sincere prayer and hope that together, as we study this marvelous book of Scripture, we may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge.

Grace and peace to you,

Barbaranne
