Hebrews 3:16-4:10 (Hebrews 3:16-4:10)

Tim Douglass, November 13, 2016
Part of the Letter to the Hebrews series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

The theme this week is “rest”, or more specifically, what the writer of Hebrews means when he talks about rest in this section. It is easy to read this with the idea that “rest” is essentially synonymous with “Heaven”, but is that what is really meant here? If it is, what do we actually know about Heaven that will fit in with that idea? There are some significant mentions of rest in Scripture. God rested after creating the universe and Jesus promises His followers rest. We need to sort some of these various ideas out and understand the concern the writer has for what his readers might be risking.
