On July 18, 2021, Elder Mike Gowens returns to Hebrews 5 to consider more carefully verses 8-9. From these verses, he demonstrates the importance of distinguishing between "cause" and "effect" in the interpretation of Scripture. This passage teaches that Christ's obedience is the cause of our eternal salvation. Man's obedience is an evidence of grace. This is message #16 in the Hebrews series.

In this 7/11/21 sermon, Elder Michael Gowens considers Hebrews 5:1-10, and the criteria that must be met in order for one to serve as High Priest under the Jewish economy. The passage indicates that Jesus is qualified for this priestly office, chiefly because in his humanity, he identifies sympathetically with our weaknesses. This is message #15 in the Hebrews study.

Because we have a Great High Priest, we have reason to persevere in faithful discipleship, and we have encouragement to pray with confidence.

Elder Michael Gowens' 5/2/21 sermon looks at Hebrews 3:7-19 and the story of the children of Israel in the wilderness.

This is message #11 in the Hebrews study.
