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 Atonement. Salvation 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.
