Epistle to the Hebrews Study #15 (Hebrews 13:1-25)

In this episode (Villa Scriptura Podcast Episode #15), we will examine chapter 13, the final chapter of this extraordinary letter of exhortation addressed to “holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling.”  Last time, we learned those who are to receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, are to “offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe,” for their God is a “consuming fire.”  In what follows then in Chapter 13, the author offers up some very specific and practical ways this admonition is to be lived out in the community, particularly in the face of the anticipated and serious persecution to come.  The holy brethren are also called upon to adhere to the apostolic, pure, and foundational teaching they had heard in the past and reject the “strange and diverse teachings” which are beginning to draw them away from their pilgrimage toward the city of the living God as new covenant disciples of Christ.
