Read: Hebrews 8:1-13 again.

Think: 

  • What words or phrases in this passage would you like to understand better? If you have time and a good commentary available, consider looking up those words and phrases and jotting down a summary of what you learn.
  • Go back and look at the Big Idea you wrote on Thursday. Is it on the target or is it a bull’s eye? If not, how does your study of these verses help you refine it into a bull’s eye?
  • People tend to idealize the past so that they miss and even mourn things that are gone. How might the Jewish Christians who read the book of Hebrews feel about the fact the statement that the old covenant “will soon disappear”?
  • As you think about what we have studied this week, should we as Christians be looking backward or forward? Why?
