Hebrews Bible Study: Jesus Christ: King, Redeemer, High Priest
Below is everything you need to get started on this 4-week Bible study on the book of Hebrews. ** Make sure to scroll all the way down to find the free resources. **
This is a 4-week Bible study on the book of Hebrews. Each week we’ll focus on three chapters, but during the last week, we’ll focus on four.
Every Monday I’ll give you a list of questions that are designed to get you thinking and digging. I’ll also provide some tidbits of information that I’ve gleaned while studying this book. You’ll find these in the “Did you know…” sections. In addition to this, I’ll list a challenge each week, and a memory verse.
Some readers have asked if there is a printable study guide available. Unfortunately, there isn’t for this one. There is a study guide available at Amazon.com (Click here). For those who prefer a free version, I will provide the questions for the study each Monday during the four weeks of the study.
Last but not least, I’ve been working on a collection of printable scripture/encouragement cards. These beautiful cards can be printed off and used in a number of ways–use them as note cards,
Scroll down the page to find all of these resources.
On Fridays I’ll post my answers to the questions for each chapter, so make sure that you come back on Fridays for that. If you would like to share your thoughts on the study, you can do so in the comment section below or on my facebook page @Timewarpwife

Chapter 7 – Jesus Likened to Malchizedek
What similarities are there between Jesus and Melchizedek?
If Jesus wasn’t from the tribe of Levi, what tribe was He from?
Why is our understanding of Melchizedek important in understanding this chapter?
If the priesthood was already established through the descendants of Aaron, why was it (and why is it still) necessary for Jesus to be our High Priest?
By what oath was Jesus sworn in as High Priest? Also see Psalm 110:4.
According to verses 26-28, what sets Jesus apart from all other high priests?
Chapter 8 – A New and Better Covenant
What is the main point of Hebrews according to this chapter?
Why was it important for Moses to make everything in the tabernacle exactly as he was commanded? Also see Exodus 25:40.
What does the word “tabernacle” mean?
Why is the new covenant better than the old one?
Where has God written the laws of the new covenant?
Why did the old covenant become obsolete?
Chapter 9 – A Perfect Tabernacle
What was in the first room of the tabernacle? And what was it called?
What was in the second room of the tabernacle? And what was it called?
What was inside the Ark of the Covenant? And what was above the ark of the covenant?
Who was permitted to enter The Most Holy Place, and when?
Verse 9 tells us that this tabernacle was a “figure” or an “illustration” of something yet to come. The original Greek word for figure was “parabole.” (Strong’s G3850). Can you find the definition of that word?
What did Jesus obtain for us when He entered The Most Holy Place (not made by human hands)?
Why was everything in the tabernacle sprinkled with blood? And why was it necessary for Christ to shed His blood?
Can you find a verse in the New Testament that is comparable to this quote from Exodus 24:8? “Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord hath made with you concerning all these words.”
That’s all for today. I’ll see you on Friday for part 2 of week 3.

THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE
God’s desire to dwell with us is greater than any passion we could ever imagine. The thing is, spending time with God shouldn’t be something we simply check off our to-do list after our morning prayer. It’s running to Him throughout the day to whisper a word of thanks. It’s going to Him first with our burdens, before calling a friend. It’s singing to Him at the kitchen sink while we’re doing dishes, and giving thanks before a meal…
There are endless ways to spend time with God, and yet so many of us are too busy to stop and include Him. So our challenge this week is to slow down, turn our eyes toward Jesus, and acknowledge Him more than we do.
So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. – Hebrews 9:28
While the image below only shows nine cards, there are 16 in total. Each week (Mondays) during the study I’ll be giving you four of them. These little scripture cards are high resolution. Each one is 4 x 5 inches, making them ideal for encouraging note cards. Because they’re so pretty, I also like the idea of putting a couple of them on the refrigerator for daily encouragement.
