Based on the Book: Hebrews - The Nearness of King Jesus, by Lisa Harper
The Book of Hebrews is rich. Hebrews was a sermon for a specific people and culture in the midst of martyrdom and persecution, but is also so relevant for us today, reminding us to continue walking toward Jesus regardless of our culture or our circumstances. Jesus is our accessible King. He is not a faraway God, but an up-close Redeemer who draws near to us. Hebrews helps make the connection between God the Father and God the Son and reminds us that Jesus is supreme, but He is also compassionate, empathetic, and loving to no end. Cost: $14.
