More about Hebrews

"I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah." (Jeremiah 31:31)

Does the New Covenant really replace the Old Covenant? Christian replacement theology is solidly based on a misunderstanding of the meaning of the new covenant. The church teaches that the new covenant cancels the Torah and God’s covenant with the Jewish people.

Is the God of the New Covenant a lot friendlier than the God of the Old Covenant? Conventional Christian teaching depicts the revelation of New Covenant in terms that contradict the image of a stern and fearsome God speaking from Mount Sinai. Was that the intention behind the comparison between Mount Sinai and Mount Zion in Hebrews 12?

Hebrews 10:10-18 presents the death of Yeshua of Nazareth as the single sacrifice for sin, but does that make Yeshua a sin offering like those once offered in the Temple? In what sense is Yeshua a sacrifice? How can he be a sacrifice when his death does not accord with the Levitical laws for the sacrificial services whatsoever? This teaching, based on the final chapter of Pastor Lancaster's booklet What about the Sacrifices? answers the difficult question of how the death of the Messiah provides atonement for sin.

Are you a spiritual person? A mature Christian? The apostles do not think that you are unless you have mastered the basic principles of the oracles of God. The writer of the book of Hebrews wanted to present his readers with some exciting thoughts about Jesus. He wanted to start exploring some heady insights about the work of Messiah, but he felt frustrated because his readership seemed unprepared for these deeper, spiritual lessons.
