Wednesday Evenings in Lent (on zoom)

One of the most fascinating writings in all the New Testament is the Letter to the Hebrews. The words of Hebrews are deeply embedded in the Christian tradition. Yet, the Letter to the Hebrews is cloaked in mystery.

Hebrews presents a startling portrait of Jesus and his mission. He is not presented as a prophet, nor as the king, nor as the suffering servant, but instead as our One Great High Priest. Nowhere else in the New Testament is this designation used for the Son of God.

The powerful words of Hebrews were written to encourage an early Christian congregation which had lost sight of its direction and its purpose. In this Lenten presentation, we will listen to what the author of Hebrews teaches us about Jesus, and learn how these words can encourage us in our own life of faith.
