Lesson Eleven—Hebrews 10 The Sacrifice… Superior to All Offerings

The ninth chapter of Hebrews closes with our High Priest appearing within the veil of heaven where we behold Him. We are “looking steadfastly toward heaven,” for we expect to see Him soon, coming out from the glories of that heavenly sanctuary. When He comes it will be for our eternal salvation. He will bring us back with Him into all the blessings of that heavenly place. In chapter ten we learn that we are now set down amidst those glories, entering through the veil into the Holy Pla...

Lesson Fifteen—Hebrews 13 The Shepherd… Superior to All Folds

Come, children, on to glory! With every face set fast Toward the golden towers, Where we shall rest at last. We have seen Christ in glory in the first seven chapters of this Epistle; we are seen as having entered within the veil with Him in the next three; we are seen journeying through this wilderness world “on to glory” in the last three chapters. In chapter 11 God’s pilgrims are following one another in the pathway of faith; in chapter 12 there is the hope that is set befor...

Lesson Fourteen—Hebrews 12 The Zion Above… Superior to All Cities

“Soldiers, forty centuries look down on you!” Thus Napoleon addressed his army in Egypt while pointing to the mighty pyramids under whose shadow they stood. In a truer sense it is thus with the army of the redeemed, the pilgrim host. The ages past, and the vast company that has trodden the path of faith before us, bear witness to us. Down through the centuries their voices reach us, encouraging us to go on. Meanwhile, in the glory light of heaven we behold them; faith led them to give up...

Lesson Thirteen—Hebrews 11:23-40 The Sufferers… Superior to the Great

The Church on its way to glory treasures the memory of the death of a greater than Joseph, and looks for a brighter inheritance. We sing: Till Thou shalt come in glory and call us hence away, To rest in all the brightness of that unclouded day, We show Thy death, Lord Jesus, and here would seek to be More to Thy death conformed whilst we remember Thee. 1. Faith for the Salvation of the Child (v. 23) Pharaoh’s commandment was like a dark cloud overshadowing Israel in Egypt. I...

Lesson Twelve—Hebrews 11:1-22 The Saints… Superior to All Men

Just as title deeds are the evidence of possessing property we may never have seen, so faith is the assurance or substantiating of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. If God has said it, that settles it. Faith rests upon the sure foundation of the Word of the living God. Walking in the course of this world there is no need for the exercise of faith. The whole world walks by sight or feeling. The just live and walk by faith. But our faith needs to be strengthened, and one gr...

Lesson Ten—Hebrews 9 The Services… Superior to Levitical Service

We continue to notice the contrast between the old and the new covenants in this chapter. We travel from the blood-stained altar, enter through the many-hued door of beauty, and find ourselves within the Holy Place. Its golden glow reminds us that here we have the prophecy and picture of better things to come. Its service typified the ministry of our High Priest in a better sanctuary, the heavenly one. Let us look at the better things in this portion. 1. The Better Sanctuary (vv. 1-10) ...

Lesson Nine—Hebrews 8 The Sanctuary… Superior to the Tabernacle

In our journey through this Epistle to the Hebrews, we reach the high point in the opening verses of chapter 8. All that has been unfolded in the previous chapters is summed up in the first verse. “Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an High Priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens.” Having had our eyes directed heavenward in the course of this letter, they are now fixed there. All that might have demanded our...

Division I. Chaps. 1:1-2:4 The Glories of the Son of God

Section A. Chap. 1:1-4 God Speaking in the Son “God who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed Heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on hig...

Division II. Chaps. 2:5-4:13 The Glories and Humiliation of the Son of Man

Having considered our Blessed Lord from the standpoint of His deity, both as the Eternal Son and as the Son of God in Manhood, we are now called upon to think of Him in His humiliation as He entered into the experiences of humanity in order that He might become the Captain of our salvation. We should never forget that His humanity is as real as His deity. He was born of a virgin; a babe, to all outward appearances like any other, and a perfectly normal child, growing up from infancy to manho...
