Teaching Outline Week 25

The Joy in Responsibility

(An In-Depth Study of Hebrews)


Faith that Draws Near

Hebrews 10:19-25 


Life is all about relationships:

In one sense, it’s all about getting closer.

First, getting closer to God.

Second, getting closer to each other.

It is all achieved by FAITH!


Let us draw near (vs 22)

Since we have a living way:

Opened by His Body

Paved by His Blood

With a True Heart

A Gift of the New Covenant


Let us hold fast (vs 23)

Since the Great High Priest is for us:

He is faithful

With a True Heart

In full assurance of Faith


Let us stir one another to love and good works (vs 24)

Since the Day draws near

Meet together

Encourage each other

Get excited about the future


How saving faith defeats sin in our lives:

Past – forgotten

Present – overcome

Future – No fear!

Faith = Assurance

The Joy in Responsibility

(An In-Depth Study of Hebrews)


Perfected For All Time

Hebrews 10:1-18 


Chapter 10 opens with another look at the Old Testament Law vs. New Covenant:

Main Point –

OT Law = Inadequate

(Verse 1-3) God meant for it to be inadequate

(Verse 4) System for handling sin is flawed

(Verse 5-8) Psalm 40 spoken by Messiah

(Verse 10) Transitions to New Covenant with comparison

(Verse 11-13) Standing Priest vs. Enthroned Messiah

New Covenant = Perfect

(Verse 14)       Offering – Christ’s death on the Cross

He – Jesus Christ

Has perfected…those being sanctified

Has perfected:

(Verse 15-18) Christ effectively puts away sin from His people.

  1. In God’s courtroom there is no evidence of remembered sin.
  2. We have a clean conscience in Christ.
  3. We are able to approach God (Most Holy Place) in Christ.
  4. We are inheritors of the New Covenant promises.

Those being sanctified:

(Verse 10) The finished work of Christ on the cross has a sanctifying effect on believers.


It all about Jesus, it’s really not about me.

We can only be perfect by faith, not works.

Second Coming

Hebrews 9:27-28 


Comparing us to Christ: (verse 27a)

US – Death then Judgment

CHRIST- Death then saves from Judgment

Parallel yet Superior

God made the appointment for you to die

Romans 5:12

Psalm 139:16

Appointed to die once

Psalm 90:12

Death is sure and its massive

After this comes judgment: (verse 27b)

We are not just chemistry

Everyone lives on

Christ at the second coming: (verse 28)

  1. offered once and bore the sin of many
  2. my punishment completed on the cross
  3. finished work of Jesus; salvation without reference to sin


Eager faith – Are you trusting in a way that makes you eager to see Christ return?
