I’m excited to start a new series here on the blog: Blown Away By Hebrews. I read Hebrews the other day and was reminded of why it’s one of my very favorite books in the Bible. Verse after verse just knocks me off my feet. The incredible story of God’s master plan of redemption and Jesus’ role as our permanent High Priest is mind-bogging and oh-so-beautiful. When I found out that the women’s Bible study I’ll be joining this fall is going through Hebrews, my heart sang. I’m looking forward to sharing from my own study as well as all that I glean from the teaching that starts up in a few weeks.
One of my favorite things about reading large chunks of Scripture at a time is getting the full context of well-known verses. Hebrews is no exception, and it just so happens that the theme verse for this blog is found in Hebrews. Over the coming weeks, I’m looking forward to sharing how much context can add to the richness and meaning of verses we often quote in isolation.
“We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain.” (Hebrews 6:19)
Can’t wait to jump into this wonderful book together!
