June 07, 2020 Hebrews 1: Christ Over All

Do you remember some of the great Old Testament prophets?
† Moses who let the Israelites out of Egypt in the great Exodus story, and who spoke face-to-face with God
† Elijah, the bold prophet who called fire down from heaven and killed the prophets of Baal
† Jonah, the reluctant prophet, who was swallowed by a whale and sent to Nineveh, the most wicked city on earth
† Daniel, the prophet in Exile who was given a position of authority in the Babylonian kingdom
† Malachi, the last prophet to speak in Old Testament times
Do you remember some of these prophets and their stories? This isn’t even all of them! We could talk about Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Amos, Hosea, Zechariah, Joel, Samuel, and many more!
The book of Hebrews begins by remembering these prophets; and then pivoting to Christ as the Last Great Prophet who speaks for God.
