Sermon Series: Hebrews - It Really Is Finished!
- The Gospel is Simple. The Letter to the Hebrews was written to Jewish Christians living in the vicinity of Jerusalem after Pentecost and before the destruction of the Temple. They were under continual pressure to go back to externals as part of what it means to be right with God. This pressure was confusing the gospel for many of them. Today the adversary has tricked many people to read this letter outside of its context and in a confused way that shrouds the cross in a fog. This series will seek to blow away all the fog and reveal the gospel in every verse--especially the controversial ones.
