Nineteenth Sunday After Pentecost - Hebrew Series: Salvation Comes Through Jesus

On this Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost we begin our final Fall series focus on the letter to the Hebrews.  This series is entitled: Salvation Comes Through Jesus and asks what is salvation?  We have many different understandings – perhaps negative, rather than positive. In this series through Hebrews, we are being challenged to explore salvation in a new light – salvation that comes through Jesus.

Connect to Salvation Comes Through Jesus: Jesus is the AtonementSalvation is
more than just the cross. God speaks to us by his Son – what does it mean in Hebrews 2: 9 – “so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone?”  Atonement is not just the cross – atonement is in and through the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus in which in him we are no longer subject to the powers of sin and death.
