In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I talk about the book of Hebrews with Sam Storms, lead pastor for preaching and vision at Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City, and founder of Enjoying God Ministries. We discuss the many challenging aspects of teaching this book so steeped in the Old Testament as well as the deep encouragement that comes from it. Topics include:

  • the aim of the writer of Hebrews
  • the wealth of the first four verses
  • the humanity of Jesus
  • the Sabbath theme in Hebrews
  • warnings in Hebrews
  • why we need a priest
  • the reason we should not anticipate a rebuilt physical temple and reinstated sacrifices
  • the challenge and intimidation of teaching Hebrews 6
  • teaching Hebrews 11 rightly
