The Epistle to the Hebrews
August 6-7, 2015

Join Drs. Tom Schreiner and Barry Joslin as they teach The Epistle to the Hebrews on August 6-7, 2015 for one of our forthcoming Alumni Academy courses. This class will flow from their recent commentaries on the letter to the Hebrews.

The class will be a study of the letter to the Hebrews and will apply the letter to today’s world. The epistle to the Hebrews may strike us as abstract theology, but we will show that the message of Christ’s superiority and excellency applies to today’s world, as the author exhorts his readers not to fall away. We gain an understanding from Hebrews of redemptive history, the role of typology, the use of the OT in the NT, the significance of the warning passages, the high priesthood of Christ, the meaning of the new covenant, the importance of faith, and a clearer picture of Christ’s deity and humanity.

That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
