Hebrews 3 – Joel Osborne
This is the 3rd lesson in our 2017 Wednesday Night Summer Series. Joel was formerly a minister/missionary at Contact Church of Christ for ten years. He is currently a practicing attorney.
Hebrews 3 continues to build on the message of the first two chapters – the superiority of Jesus – calling him an apostle and a high priest, and a faithful son.
“But Christ is faithful as a son over God’s house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast.“
Hebrews 3:6 (NIV)
The writer further contrasts “God’s house,” a faithful house, with an unfaithful house – as illustrated by Old Testament Israel.
